Meet Our Pastor

A Concord, California, native and Presbyterian since birth, Sharon Hare has served churches in urban and rural America, as well as working for the Salvation Army and a Presbyterian Mission serving homeless women in Chicago.

Sharon has had a long and enduring interest and passion for mission and service with people at the margins of society. Sharon is the mother of an adopted daughter, and cares for her aging parents who still live in Concord.

In her long walk with God, she has become a trained Spiritual Director, and plans to help our congregation to nurture our own spiritual growth.

In her Statement of Faith, she wrote, “I experience the wonder of God’s love in the beauty of all that God has created and called good. Not only in all that nature offers, but in the creation of human kind and all its unique variety.” She ends with, “…I am overwhelmed by a God who witnesses our bumbling efforts to walk this life of faith, and continues to love us unconditionally into wholeness.”
