Ten Desires for Churches in San Francisco

Check it out! A new blog series from Pastor Dave on what he wants for the church in San Francisco. It's been five years since I first felt God's pull to San Francisco. I visited in 2011 for only a few days as a tourist. Little did I know, my heart was captured and my future altered. (Cue Tony Bennett.) Less than three years later, we would say goodbye to Texas and become Californians. Philosophi… 03/22/2016

2016 Update: Constants, Transitions and Beginnings

Check out this update on the blog, written by Pastor Dave. January is proving to be a big month for King's Cross.

An Opportunity to Serve and Sacrifice

Important Update for King's Cross. When Maggie and I first visited San Francisco in 2011, God burdened us for the city. Before our vision for King’s Cross, we had a vision for San Francisco. We wanted to see the gospel shine brightly in every neighborhood. God decided to test us. 06/15/2015

Sojourn Network

Website Week, Day 5: King's Cross is a Sojourn Network church. Learn why that is such great news! When we were moving to San Francisco, I knew I wanted to partner with the Sojourn Network. There are many networks to join, but in my mind none combines theological vision, gospel culture, with missional and organizational intelligence as SN does. 03/11/2015

We believe flourishing is God's desire for San Francisco: namely, that every person in every sphere of life -- personally, relationally, professionally, socially, and culturally -- would live well, for his glory and our good. Flourishing involves the knowledge, experience, and prospering of all that… 03/10/2015

Why Call It King's Cross?

Many people wonder about the name, King's Cross? Here's how it came about. Confession: I didn't move to San Francisco with a name for the church. I needed to spend a few months inhabiting San Francisco's streets, newspapers, and beliefs. Soon after moving to California, though, it became clear. 03/06/2015


After nearly a year of being in the city, while praying and thinking and dreaming about what is and what should be, we're ready for 2015. Check out the new digs, and get excited with us! King's Cross is a new church being planted in San Francisco. We are a growing community passionate about the flourishing of the city through the gospel of Christ.
