Our Pastor

Pastor Ruban Hobday was called to the Great Commission in 2004 before Inspired by Bishop. Willoughby, the vision of impacting people fell upon his shoulders. He shared his vision with the Church and now the UPC Ayanavaram has impacted many lives. He is a man of commitment, far sighted, meticulous, and a man who loves his eggs sunny side up. The voice of the Lord and the Word are his armor and Worship is his life. He believes that he would rather be David who danced in front of the ark unmindful of circumstances, rather than to partner with Mica who laughed at the worshipping spirit. As we fondly call him, he is a tradition breaker and loves to wear black. He is married to Sis. Sandhya, who serves in the church in all capacities, is a practicing dentist, and believes in being apostolic 24/7. They are blessed with two daughters Samara Tanya Hobday being the eldest and Ziona Ahava Hobday the youngest.
