Lyuba Dovgalyuk is the founding member of Liya Christian Ministry. Lyuba was born and grew up in Riga, Latvia. She started playing piano at the age of 6 and started to accompany church choirs at the age of 12. Lyuba spent her summers and school breaks travelling to various parts of Eastern Europe as a music missionary. She brought her music to the small churches in the villages and towns.
In 1987 Lyuba and Mikhail, along with their four children, formed The Dovgalyuk ensemble. The Dovgalyuk children started to learn how to use their music talents and ability in ministry from a very young age. Starting in 1989 they performed in churches, prisons, hospitals, schools and at various outreach events hosted by the Latvian Christian Mission.
Shortly after the Dovgalyuk family moved to the United States in 1991, Lyuba joined the staff Sunrise Senior Living where she works to this day.
She is a grandmother of eleven.
