John Hare
Pastor John has been at Cardinal since June 2021.  Having grown up in Mechanicsville, VA, John has had a heart for this region of Virginia since he was called to ministry in college.  He is a graduate from Liberty University (B.A) and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDiv., Th.M).  He is married to his beautiful wife Caitlin, and they have been blessed with three children: Adalyn, Ben, and Blakely.  John has a passion to teach the Word of God and shape people as disciples of Jesus Christ who will go out and live Gospel-centered lives.  His desire is to lead Cardinal to be a Gospel movement who makes disciples that makes disciples in Caroline County, Virginia, and around the globe.
