Scott Crosby 

Ministry Director, Christian Union New York City and Christian Union Washington, DC


Scott is a graduate of The American University in Washington, D.C. During 30 years of residence in Asia, he worked in diverse areas of the arts, publishing and missions.

Scott established a gallery for Chinese contemporary art in Shanghai, as well as models of urban ministry in some of Asia's global cities.

In 2010, Scott returned to the U.S. to establish the New City Commons Foundation to work with churches and networks in developing sustainable and effective models of Christian engagement of culture.

Scott and his family have travelled extensively and are on a perpetual quest to locate new sources of authentic Chinese cuisine.

Matt Allen

Ministry Intern, Christian Union New York City and Christian Union Washington, DC

MattA2018Matt is a native of Plymouth, England. He relocated to the U.S. for his undergraduate studies, and recently graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Public and International Affairs. His time at Princeton instilled in him a heart for impacting culture and making Jesus glorified in whichever community he is placed in, and he looks forward to the challenge of continuing this in New York City.

As the other half of the Christian Union New York team, Matt complements Scott's vast experience and deep wisdom with social media know-how, creative writing skills, and subtle British wit. He was also quick to establish new tea-drinking habits in the office - a legacy that he hopes will long outlive his time with Christian Union.

Matt will soon be married to his lovely fiancée, Rachel, and together they look forward to being a witness on Princeton's campus for the beauty of Christ's covenantal love for the Church as Rachel finishes up her senior year.
