Rich Boban, Director of Music
Rich was born in New Jersey at the age of zero in 1957. He lived in New Jersey until in 1990 he couldn’t take it anymore and accepted the role of Music Minister in an Indianapolis church. The Head Pastor there was so wonderful that Rich left at the first opportunity and took a position of Pastor in Whiting Indiana. He served there for three years before becoming a Music Minister in Munster, an Organist in Midlothian, and a Pastor again in Whiting. In all of these areas Richard has excelled in his own eyes, and, though not many agree with him, continues to think he is doing a fine work for the Lord in lifting up God’s people in worship and praise.
