Mike Bare

Technology / Head Boys Soccer Coach

Favorite Quote: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13


Mr. Bare grew up in East Peoria and graduated from PND in 1999. He worked in IT at Boeing for ten years before leaving the corporate world for PND due to his love of the school and his passion for working with young people. Working in PND’s Christ-centered environment has helped him to keep Christ at the center of his own life. His favorite thing about working at PND is that ability to help form and shape young people at a very influential time in their lives, which he emulates through his coaching of the boys soccer team. When not coaching winning soccer teams, Mr. Bare enjoys managing websites, video editing, and coaching his own four children in their various sports!
