Lead Minister Ryan Hart

Pastor Ryan is a wide-eyed dreamer. After 15 years as a youth and children’s minister Ryan started Open Cathedral. “I was tired of church sucking. God’s message is thrilling. Church should be, too!”

Ryan’s describes his role this way: “I listen to new ideas and I say YES.” Open Cathedral is led by friendly, passionate, loving everyday people who want to love EVERYONE. 

With a smile and a clarity of purpose, Ryan says, “I’m a professional troublemaker. Jesus invites us to love God and love EVERYONE. The church must stand up against oppression, sexism and homophobia. God’s message is that love leads the way."

Ryan is married to Virginia Hart and they have three kids, Catherine, Jackson, and Ryan. Pastor Ryan is an ordained minister in the UNITED CHURCH of Christ, a progressive Christian movement. Contact Ryan
