Bart Garrett

Lead Pastor

Bart Garrett is the lead pastor at Christ Church. Bart co-founded Christ Church in 2006, with brother-in-law Jonathan St. Clair. He received his masters of divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary. Bart has a special passion for reaching everyone in the community, whether they were raised in the church, have left the church or have never been to a church. He wants Christ Church to be a place where friends, neighbors and coworkers are all equally welcome.

Bart lives in Oakland with his wife, Katie and their three daughters, Caroline, Clair and Cameron. When he is not serving the community and the church, he keeps physically fit by running, mentally fit by reading.
