Scott Crosby, Senior Pastor

Scott has over 25 years of ministry experience in urban settings, serving at Liberti Fairmount in PhiladelphiaRedeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, and also as a pastoral intern in Nashville.   Scott, his wife Anne Marie, and their children Ezra and Honor identify deeply with an emphasis on the gospel of grace as not just the way that we get to know God, but the way that we grow in our relationship with God as well.  Scott and his family thrive in diverse and creative contexts, and Scott especially enjoys helping leaders at various levels and backgrounds to develop and work to their fullest potential in the gospel.  Scott's greatest joy in ministry is getting to know Jesus more deeply in relationship with others.  For down time, Scott enjoys laughing with his wife and kids, and at the antics of their crazy bulldog and rescued alley cat playing together.  He loves to cook and eat good food with friends.  He also enjoys playing the guitar, cycling, and studying Wing Chun Kung Fu.
