Tracy Moore - Preaching Minister
Tracy Moore came to faith at an early age and made a decision to follow Jesus at a Bible camp in Alabama, where he was baptized. Tracy has been in ministry for over 25 years, serving congregations in Alabama, Tennessee and Florida. He's passionate about understanding God's book left to humankind. Not just understanding the stories, but also what they tell us about God; a creator who loves us and seeks desperately to rescue us and be in our lives. Tracy and his wife have been married for 25+ years. Together they have three sons, one daughter and one daughter-in-law. Tracy has been involved in the girls softball community for several years - sometimes as a coach and other times as dad. Tracy is a huge Elvis fan! He used to visit Graceland once each year. He says if their last child had been another boy, his wife was going to let him name the child Elvis! So glad they finally had a baby girl! He also had a dog named Elvis at one time.
