Lead Pastor, Christ Church San Francisco


Toby's family has been in California for four generations and he was raised mostly in San Diego and Monterey.  He and his wife Rebekah were married in San Diego in 1999 and have three active and fun boys aged 15, 10, and 7.  Toby earned his BS from UC Davis and after spending a number of years in the marketplace, he went back to school to pursue a masters at Westminster Seminary in California and a PhD at Stony Brook University in New York. While living in Brooklyn, God redirected Toby and Rebekah towards full-time ministry, and they came home to California in 2009 to plant a church in San Francisco.

As Lead Pastor, his primary responsibilities include preaching, counseling, leadership development, and providing directional leadership for our church.
