The Reverend Sharon D. Moore, MPC
Rev. Sharon D. Moore, also affectionately called Rev. Sharon, is an ordained Itinerant Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and is presently serving by her husband’s side, the Rev. Dr. Byron C. Moore, as the Executive Pastor at the Saint Andrew AME Church in Memphis, Tennessee where he is the Senior Pastor. In this capacity, her detailed eye and visionary acumen is most beneficial, as she provides administrative oversight for the more than 50 active ministries at The Saint.
Rev. Moore is the founder and facilitator of a Women’s Ministry, the E.A.G.L.E.S. (Expectations As God Leads Each Sister), which has been introduced and implemented to three congregations since its inception. E.A.G.L.E.S. focuses on cultivating women’s individual spiritual lives through regular enrichment sessions; retreats; group sessions; and worship services, thereby resulting in growth that equips women for mental, emotional, physical, and financial development and prosperity.
Rev. Sharon’s passion for community uplift was evident by the outreach efforts she initiated in her previous ministerial assignments. She initiated an outreach effort to the NSO (Neighborhood Service Organization) in Cass Corridor in Detroit, Michigan at which the men and women of the church provided food, clothes and spiritual uplift to individuals who were transitioning in life. She is also the Co-Founder and Co-Facilitator, along with her husband, of the F.A.M.E. (Fishing After Mankind Earnestly) Ministry that ministers the message of Jesus Christ to all people regardless of race, color or creed and prepares and equips individuals to minister to the masses in innovative ways.
Whether a solid or struggling Christian, new believer or salvation seeker, the Rev. Sharon D. Moore, will have a message from the Lord for you. The impact of her preaching ministry has been a catalyst to many persons receiving Christ as Lord and Savior, causing the pursuit of the spiritual relationship that transforms the life of the recipient.
Rev. Sharon has served as the Coordinator of Women In Ministry for the Saint Paul-Minneapolis District of the AME Church and as a member of the Executive Board for the African Methodist Episcopal Women In Ministry of the Chicago Annual Conference. She has been recognized and honored by the Michigan Chronicle for her leadership and active participation in the religious community. She has also been honored by the National Coalition of Women In Ministry with the Esther Award for leadership and ministry in the church and community.
While ministering in St. Paul, Rev. Sharon was hired by the St. Paul Public Schools as a contractual advisor to young ladies who had been faced with personal and academic challenges. In that capacity, numerous young ladies were motivated to graduate from high school and pursue a college education. She also served as a volunteer for the school system and mentored young people through the Chosen to Achieve Mentorship Program. As a result of Rev. Sharon’s active participation in the community, the St. Paul City Council acknowledged the work of her and her husband by designating October 18th as the Rev. Byron & Rev. Sharon Moore Day in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Prior to entering into full time ministry, Rev. Sharon worked for Eisai Pharmaceutical as a Medical Sales Representative where she received numerous sales awards including district acknowledgements for “best practice ideas” and the national Pinnacle Award, for sales excellence, outstanding commitment and achievement.
Rev. Sharon is an active member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and the NAACP. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Systems Economics & Management from Michigan State University and possesses a Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio.
Rev. Sharon and her husband are the blessed parents of three beautiful children: Candace Desiree, Chloe Dominique and Caleb Darius Moore. Rev. Sharon knows that the Lord placed her husband in her life as a companion, confidant and co-laborer in love, life and ministry. She is also convinced that through the relationship she is cultivating with her children, she is discovering new meaning to the unconditional love that the Lord shows us. Outside of accepting Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior, she feels that her husband and children are four of her biggest blessings!
