Christopher N. Croom, M.BEx.

Founder & Lead Expositor

Chris is the founder and lead expositor of CROSS & Culture, a site dedicated to helping Christians to understand sound doctrine and understand how to apply it and engage the world around them for the glory of God.

Chris grew up in the church as a young child. He was a great Sunday School kid and even made a profession of faith, fueled by emotion and culture. After growing up to the decision-making age he quit going to the Church having not been truly converted. Later, he would be invited to a Church by his now brother-in-law where there was a message preached that was closer to the gospel but yielded only a moderate change. A year or so later, after struggling with sin, he found conviction through the reading of Scripture, which brought about not just a true sense of sin, but repentance, and a new desire to glorify God with his life. This was the change that brought real conversion, leading him down a road that led to a desire to teach, learn, and grow.

Years later, Chris is a graduate of Liberty University three times (Graduate Degree of Theology, B.S. of Religion, M.A. Biblical Exposition), and is a current student at Columbia International University, studying in the Doctoral Program of Practical Theology, with a focus on Moral Theology. His life has since been devoted to preaching and discipleship, showing Christians how to read the Scripture and apply the correct theology to their lives. He has also engaged in informal counseling of new Christians and loves apologetics. Chris also serves on the Spiritual Manhood Advisory board of Wyatt McIntyre’s Spiritual Manhood social media platform.

Chris is unapologetically Calvinistic in his soteriology; and reformed Presbyterian in his practice of the faith, with a few confessional caveats.

Chris is married with 3 children, and looking to live a life committed to the ministry of the word, whether in writing, speaking, or academia.

Brolo Bowlin

Host and Contributor

Is that his real name? You may never know.

Brolo is the host of the YouTube show CROSS & Culture and an obsessive lover of the Scriptures. Brolo loves to dive into all things Reformed Theology and has a strong analytical mind, regarding the absorption of systematic and biblical theology. Brolo is also Chris’s Brother-in-law and adds insight and structure into the planning of episodes. From choosing topics to address, ordering the discussion, leading the talk, and post-production editing, Brolo is a willing and fruitful servant of the Lord, in any way he can be. He is also a father of four; two of which wake him up way too early in the morning.
