A Bit about Bob

Bob grew up in the Mid-West but has lived in California his adult life. He came out after college in 1999 to teach history at The King’s Academy in Sunnyvale. There he met his future bride Erin. They married in 2006 while Bob was in seminary. He came on staff at Grace Silicon Valley (Palo Alto) in 2007 doing teen ministry and other odd jobs. In 2011 Grace called him to be the site pastor of the South Bay site, and the Crossland’s have been in the South Bay ever since. Bob and Erin have twin daughters, Raelyn and Reni. Besides his family and church, Bob is passionate about perfecting rib-eye steaks and tomato sauce. He’s trying to exercise; and failing at gardening.
