Bill Moore

Fatherhood Program Manager

As the Fatherhood Program Manager, Bill develops and facilitates all programs that support fathers. Bill initially came to the center to volunteer for the program, and as God works, he found himself implementing the program. As Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” Bill is passionate about helping men become the biblical fathers their families need.

Bill and his wife moved to Missouri in 2017 and enjoy country life. He likes to see what God created as his entertainment; he and his wife call it TV (God’s TV). Bill likes to read God’s word and work on his cars, mowers, and truck. He and his wife have four boys and three grandkids.
