Richard Kobakian

Senior Pastor

Richard and Helen Kobakian are the much-loved Senior Pastors of LifeHouse Church in Melbourne and are blessed with three fantastic children, Sarah, Stephanie and Mark.

Having heard the call of God on his life at the age of 16 Richard turned his life radically around to follow Christ. In 2002 Richard and his wife Helen planted LifeHouse Church and it has since grown to become a significant church in Melbourne’s north. Renowned for his ability to communicate the gospel passionately and practically he is honoured to see numerous weekly salvations through Lifehouse.

This evangelistic gift is also opening doors for Richard to speak in other parts of the nation, encouraging mature churches to re-discover God’s desperation to seek and save the lost.
