Our Senior Pastor
Rev. Jimmy Moor in his own words...
I am a native of the area, having grown up in Marietta. My undergraduate degree is in history from Emory University. I have a Masters in History from the University of North Carolina, and my seminary degree is from the Candler School of Theology at Emory. As a pastor I have served the Gainesville First United Methodist Church (Associate), Trinity UMC in Claremont (Hall County), the Blairsville Circuit, as Manager/Director of Camp Glisson, North Decatur UMC, Kingswood UMC, and Saint Mark UMC.
There has never been a time in which Christ and the church were not part of my life. I was baptized and confirmed in the First Methodist Church (later First UMC) of Marietta, and it was as part of that church that I committed my life to Christ. There I was active in various choirs and in the Methodist Youth Fellowship. Camp Glisson, where I was a camper and counselor, was extremely important in shaping my faith, as were my experiences in the Georgia Tech Wesley Foundation with Bill Landiss.
I have been married to Julie for over 35 years and we met while serving as counselors at Camp Wesley in Fairburn. Julie is a wonderful person who loves to sew and work in the garden. She is also an excellent cook. Julie is a retired educator and we have two adult children, Allyson and Josh, and several grandchildren.
I love sports of all kinds, am a voracious reader, like to hike, am passionate about most kinds of music, and my friends think I make the best homemade ice cream in the world.
Rev. Jimmy Moor preaches mostly during the 8:30 and 11:00 am traditional worship services. He is also teaching several short term and longer term enrichment classes.
