NL Moore & Associates is pleased to announce the selection of Pastor Bart Scharrer as Lead Pastor at ROCKHARBOR in Costa Mesa, California ( Our team was privileged to work with this dynamic multi-site church in the selection of an amazing pastor who “fits” the culture and needs of this incredible Kingdom-focused ministry.

As search chair Robb Hammond summarized, “We are so excited about Bart’s leadership! It is almost as if he was tailor-made for our congregation. We are grateful for the way NL Moore & Associates listened to us, understood our identity and then brought us a candidate who not only met but really exceeded our expectations.”

Bart has spent the past five years as the Executive Pastor at Substance Church, a multi-site congregation in St. Paul, Minnesota. He holds a BA in Pastoral Studies and a Master of Organizational Leadership degree. Bart, his wife Amy, and their two teenage daughters Allyson and Brooklyn are well known “beach people” who love the outdoors and are so excited to make their home in the vibrant culture of Orange County and Southern California.

NL Moore & Associates is honored to have partnered with ROCKHARBOR in this Lead Pastor search and selection. We wish the Scharrer family and the entire ROCKHARBOR community God’s richest blessing as they launch into the future together!
