Background 

Steve Kuban began playing piano by ear at age 3 and was a professional musician by age 13. At age 16 he led his high school band to victory in an international competition in Italy. At 17 he began music studies at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, where at age 18 he was profoundly changed by a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, after which Kuban dedicated his entire life and music to God. 

At age 23 Kuban became a Professor of Music at NBC/Vanguard College in Edmonton (Assemblies of God / PAOC) for 3 years, where he also graduated with dual diplomas in Theology and Sacred Music. He then became associate pastor and music director for 7 years at Crossroads Cathedral in Toronto with Rev. Doug Lynn, during which time he wrote and directed 5 musical productions, recorded several live worship albums, and led worship more than 3,000 times. Visitors from other churches (and often worship teams on Sunday nights) came from miles around to enjoy the beautiful presence of God experienced in the prophetic flow of worship. He became Dean of Music and Recording Arts at Canada Christian College, after which God called him to travel full-time internationally in worship ministry, which he has done faithfully for the past 20 years. 

Dr. Kuban desires to touch people's lives through worship in every way possible. He led worship regularly on the national television show "100 Huntley Street" (seen across Canada and syndicated around the world), where host and President Dr. David Mainse called him "one of the great worship leaders of our time." Dr. Kuban led worship at many Assembly of God/PAOC events and at many multi-church events such as "March For Jesus." 

Through the "Canada Arise" national worship conferences in the early 1990's, God used Dr. Kuban to pioneer a revival of prophetic worship that touched thousands of worshipers, music leaders and pastors throughout Canada and in the Northeast USA, helping bring a restoration of true worship and Davidic prophetic worship to many denominations and churches nationally. 

Dr. Kuban has a deep desire to teach on the restoration of true worship, and reach souls for Yeshua! He teaches seminars (6-10 hours in duration) in many nations, even hard-to-reach places such as the Persian Gulf, where he has taught 30 worship seminars and led over 160 events and worship services in Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and the UAE (Dubai and all 7 emirates). He has been favored by YHVH to lead worship at national levels in the GCC, including concerts for thousands in Qatar and the UAE and even for workers at the top-security Baraka Nuclear Power Plant on the border of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Abu Dhabi. 

Dr. Kuban has been an ardent supporter of Israel for almost 35 years! He began by leading worship at ICEJ (International Christian Embassy Jerusalem) meetings in Edmonton in 1984, and has since made 12 trips to Israel, leading worship on tours with Bishop Arnold Cabelquinto and Archbishop Dominiquae Bierman (President of United Nations For Israel and Kad-Esh MAP Ministries).
