Tim Moore called to Union Seminary as director of donor development
RICHMOND, Va. (October 25, 2017) – Rev. Dr. Tim Moore has been called to Union Presbyterian Seminary as director of donor development. He will work out of the school’s Charlotte, North Carolina, campus.
An ordained United Methodist minister, Moore received a Doctor of Ministry from Hood Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Duke University, a Master of Letters from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and a Bachelor of Science in Religion and Philosophy from Greensboro College.
Moore has served local congregations and campus ministries in the mid-Atlantic and worked in administrative positions at the denominational level of the United Methodist Church. Over the past 20 years, he has been a professor, academic and administrative deans, and college chaplain and campus minister. Most recently, Moore served as a dean and campus coordinator for Pfeiffer University’s Charlotte campus.
“My passion is connecting the church and the academy with the world,” Moore said. “I have known about and admired Union for years and am excited about working at the intersection of academia, the church, and the world. I see Union as vitally committed to helping people live out their own passion for ministry and service.”
He cites several examples of Union’s commitment to “being nimble and forward-leaning as it addresses the needs of the church and the world in the 21st century.” Among those examples are the seminary’s Leadership Institute and its curriculum for Christian education as a resource for the church worldwide.
“Union is perfectly positioned because of its size and multiple campuses to be innovative, creative, and greatly relevant,” he said.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Moore join our team,” said Vice President for Advancement Richard Wong. “He brings an extraordinary range of experience across all aspects of the church and the university which enables him to tell Union’s story with clarity and power and to build strong relationships on Union’s behalf.”
Moore describes himself as a native of southern Appalachia. He was born and raised in a town of approximately 10,000 people two hours southwest of Asheville named Cullowhee. His wife, Amy, is also an ordained United Methodist minister. They have an 11-year-old daughter.
