Toby planted Christ Church in San Francisco in 2009. Prior to that, he worked for over 13 years as an entrepreneur and environmental consultant while pursuing a Masters in Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary and a Ph.D. in history at Stony Brook University in New York. During his time in New York, Toby helped plant a church in Brooklyn and God used that experience to give him a passion for church planting and communicating the gospel in cities.
Toby currently serves as the Director of the Multiply Initiative for Transforming the Bay with Christ (TBC). Toby is also actively engaged in church-based community relief work in rural Malawi and marketplace ministry. He and his wife Rebekah have three sons and live in San Francisco.
