A specialist in systematic and historical theology, Dr. Weber comes to Corban University with a wealth of experience both teaching theology and developing and managing online learning systems. Prior to coming to Corban, Weber served as a Professor of Theology at Moody Bible Institute from 2002 to 2018. During this time, he also helped to develop and teach core online courses in systematic theology and church history for nine years. While at Moody, he served as Chairman of the Faculty Development Committee for six years, and as the Treasurer of the Midwest Region of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Following his time at Moody, Dr. Weber began teaching synchronous online classes for Veritas Scholars Academy. He has also served as an instructor for Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, teaching courses in American church history, and has 30 years of experience as a worship leader and Director at various churches.

Rich married his wife, Kathrin, in 1993. Together, they have two children, Charis and Aren. When he is not helping to lead worship, or teaching courses at his local church, Rich can be found enjoying multiple cups of coffee, reading, researching family genealogies, and holding out hope for another Cubs World Series title in his lifetime.

“We stand at a critical moment in the history of Christianity, where it is vital for believers to be Christ’s ‘disciples’ in the truest sense of the word—to be men and women who are equipped to understand, and cherish, sound biblical teaching; to recognize how this teaching applies to everyday life and conforms us to the image of Christ; and to pass on this teaching faithfully as Christ’s ambassadors. It is important to me that I serve in a ministry that will stand firm, unwavering in its commitment to biblical truth and its mission to equip the saints to know, love, and serve Christ in every facet of their lives.”
