Tobi Grunick

Leadership Care & Support Pastor

Born and raised in Hannover, Germany, Tobi was exposed to the Gospel at a young age. After desiring a deeper relationship with Jesus, he ultimately accepted Christ as his Savior in middle school.

While attending Calvary Chapel Bible College in Germany, Tobi felt the Holy Spirit prompting him towards vocational ministry. Following his studies, Tobi’s journey led him to Santa Barbara, California. There, he not only met his wife Kristyn, but also started attending prayer meetings for a fledgling church plant called Reality SF.

Tobi always planned to move back to Germany, but eventually God made it clear that San Francisco was where He wanted Tobi to be. Before joining staff in 2015, Tobi served as a church intern, with a missions organization, and worked in retail at Apple. As the Leadership Care & Support Pastor, Tobi is driven by his deep passion for people – their stories and unique journeys. Tobi spends the majority of his time engaging with individuals, offering pastoral care and support to those in need.

Outside of work, Tobi enjoys exploring new places and cultures with his family, playing the drums, and supporting his home football team, Hannover 96. Tobi and Kristyn live in the Outer Sunset with their son Beckett and daughter Goldie.
