Erin Dobraska

Interim Worship Director

A part of the NewLife family since 2007, Erin joined the NewLife staff in 2017. She grew up in a small town east of Des Moines but has lived in Minnesota and Montana as well.
Erin met her husband Andrew at Crown College in Minnesota. He was the sound guy and she played the keyboard and sang in the college’s worship team. Not much has changed today as they both enjoy serving together on NewLife’s worship team – Andrew as the head sound guy and Erin as a vocalist and pianist. In addition to worship team, Erin has also been a small group leader, served as Director of VBS, led Women’s Ministries and helps as a wedding facility coordinator.
Erin and Andrew have two awesome kids, Elijah and Addison, who keep them plenty busy with school and sporting activities. Elijah is active in basketball while Addison is a budding gymnast. In addition to working as the Grow Coordinator at NewLife, Erin works part-time at Grand View Christian School as a preschool associate. Andrew works full-time at the Iowa Events Center as an accountant.
In their “spare time” the Dobraskas love bonfires, traveling with family and cheering for Iowa State and the Green Bay Packers (“Go, Pack, Go!”). Erin enjoys reading, decorating and organizing, event planning, sitting by the pool and cooking. Needless to say the Dobraskas are a busy bunch!

Erin is passionate about embracing each person through serving and family. She looks forward to where God leads her and her family next.
