Pastor, author, and former reporter David Crosby has helped countless people evaluate their values. After one of the nation's most horrific natural disasters, Hurricane Katrina, he and his church were responsible for deploying 21,000 volunteers to projects including 1,100 home recovery operations and 91 new home constructions. To this day, his former church deploys approximately 100 volunteers a week in a dozen intentional ministry outlets in the city. David, author of The Care Effect and Your Pain Is Changing You, is active in community and denominational affairs, and has received many awards and recognitions for his civic involvement. He and his high school sweetheart, Janet Rose Crosby, live in Louisiana and have three children and eight grandchildren.
