Bobby Oommen

Bobby was born in Kerala, India and came to the States when he was just over a year old. His family has lived in the Chicago area ever since. Bobby grew up in the Mar Thoma church that traces its roots to the apostle Thomas who brought the gospel to India. Bobby joined the staff of Harvest in October 2006 and provides leadership to our Praise Team.

In addition to music, Bobby is passionate about finding the intersection of faith in Christ and everyday life, how we live out our faith in the workplace, and growing in honesty and transparency in Christian community. He enjoys playing his guitar, listening to 80’s hair bands, and playing basketball. Bobby is married to Renee and they have four children: Micah, Ethan, Joshua, and Kiran. Bobby graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a B.S. in Information Systems and is currently a Computer Science teacher at a middle school in Chicago.
