David Crosby ============ As interesting as his writing, compassionate pastor and former reporter David Crosby has walked with many individuals through their pain, including one of the nation’s most horrific natural disasters.

More recently, he endured the suffering associated with a life-threatening ordeal impacting his grandson and the roller-coaster ride the family took until he recovered. David is active in community and denominational affairs, and has received many rewards and recognition for his civic involvement. He and high school sweetheart, Janet Rose Crosby, live in Louisiana and have three children and eight grandchildren.
