Hobart Assembly Leadership
Hobart Assembly is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Pastor Ryan McDowell
Pastor Ryan has been leading Hobart Assembly since October of 2006. He and his wife Rebecca are purposely living out a God-given calling. He strives to walk with integrity of heart and leave footprints for others to follow that point to Christ.
Pastor Ryan is a gifted communicator whose heart desires to serve the body of Christ. He emphasizes God's comprehensive rule over a believer's life and makes it his goal each week for people to experience the presence and power of God. Being grounded in the Bible and developing a consistent hunger for the Presence of God Almighty are keys to a vital Christian walk.
Pastor Ryan graduated from Northpoint Bible College in 1996 with a degree in Bible and Pastoral Leadership.
Pastor Ryan has been happily married for 27 years to his wife, Rebecca. They have three children: Steven, Andrew, and Sophia.
Pastor Rebecca McDowell
Pastor Rebecca joined the Hobart Assembly leadership team in 2006 as Pastor of Worship Ministries. In addition to leading worship, Pastor Rebecca is a gifted communicator and preacher of God's Word. She is married to her college sweetheart and adores her three children. She seeks to inspire burning hearts for the Lord in sacrificial pursuit of His Presence. Rebecca desires to raise up and empower worshipers of all ages.
She graduated from Northpoint Bible College in 1995 with a degree in Bible and Pastor Leadership.
Pastor Eric Sluder
Pastor of Youth and Discipleship
Pastor Eric and his wife Allyssa are passionate about awakening and equipping this generation of young people to love God and dwell in His love.
Pastor Eric's life was powerfully transformed here at Hobart Assembly, and he began working with our youth in 2015. After several years of leading and managing employees as a union boilermaker, Pastor Eric accepted the call of God to join the ministry team full-time in 2020.
Ev. Brandon Galambos
Director of Evangelism and Digital Engagement
Brandon and his wife Brigette are passionate about souls and desire to see the local church grow. They believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and are prayerfully contending for a Great Spiritual Awakening. Introducing people to Christ and seeing the Kingdom of God advance is woven into their DNA.
They have been valued members of our ministry team since February 2020. Brigette and Brandon graduated from River School of Ministry in Tampa, Florida and have two beautiful children together.
Pastor George & Sharon Miller
Congregational Care & Senior's Ministry
Pastor George and Sharon Miller have been working at Hobart Assembly since 2006. During that time, Pastor George has overseen the church missions program, senior's ministry, and most recently, he and Sharon have taken on the role of Congregational Care Pastors.
They are beloved members of our church family and, though retired (shhh! don't tell anyone) they still give their time faithfully each week to minister and enrich the lives of those around them.
Tim Miller is one of the first people you will likely meet when you come to Hobart Assembly. And if it is not him, it will be one of his many joyful and engaging team members! Tim and his wife Jill have been a part of Hobart Assembly for many years. They have raised their three children here and have served in various volunteer capacities during that time. Recently, he has felt God calling him to use gifts in a more significant way and joined our ministry team in January 2023.
Director of Children's Ministry
Anna joined our church ministry team in January 2023. Anna has her degree in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University. She and her husband Ethan have been a part of Hobart Assembly for many years. Anna is a gifted communicator and brings incredible energy and joy to all she does. Our kid's services are filled with anointed teaching, demonstrations, and excitement! Your kids will love her!
Rachael joined our church staff in the summer of 2022. Rachael has an enthusiastic and warm personality. She loves God and loves people and she makes everyone who comes into our church office feel like they are people on the earth! When there is a need, she is there! If you haven't met her yet, no doubt you soon will!
