About Our Pastor
Pastor Ross grew up in Massachusetts in a non-Christian home. At 19, after his Jewish father accepted Christ, he followed suit and was born-again after a dramatic conversion experience on the streets of San Francisco. Six months later, he was attending Bible college and preparing for fulltime ministry. Ross and Barb met at church and married in 1986 (they have 3 grown children). They've served overseas as missionaries to Japan and in various pastoral positions over the years -- most recently pastoring The Rock which they planted in 2003. Ross graduated from Bethany University with a bachelor’s degree in ministerial studies, Fuller Theological Seminary with a master’s degree in Cross Cultural Studies from their School of World Mission, and Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary with a doctor of ministry degree. Ross has also taught as an associate adjunct professor at GGBTS.
