My heartfelt sympathy to the family of Bishop Moore. Bishop Moore Will always be connected to my life. He installed me to my first pastorate, Church of Jesus, Hampton Virginia, June 2004. A great Preacher and Teacher who knew how to add humor to both his preaching and teaching to keep you interested. It’s my sincere prayer that God will strengthen the family during this time of sorrow. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning , , Psalm 30:5

I will cherish the memories of the Moore Family from the time I first met Clarresa and Myra in Tulsa and the dedication of Bishop and Mrs Moore. I will keep the family in prayer and my God continue to bless and keep them in His will.
