Pastor Philip Abode and his wife, Rondalyn, have been passionate about helping people grow in their relationship with the Lord since the time they both came to know Him in college at the University of Tulsa. Shortly after graduation, Philip and Rondalyn moved to Dallas, TX to attend Dallas Theological Seminary in preparation for helping start Crossover Bible Church.
After completing a Masters in Christian Education, Philip and Rondalyn moved back to Tulsa in the summer of 2005 to start the work that God had called them to. The Abodeʼs have been a part of the Crossover family since day one. Philip assumed the role of lead pastor in April 2009 and has been humbled and amazed by Godʼs grace and faithfulness during his time as lead pastor of Crossover. The Abodes count it all joy to be able to labor in Christʼs church and be used by Him to encourage and build up His people.
