Thesis topic/academic interests
Ryan is exploring the role beauty and imagination play in shaping and nurturing local expressions of the body of Christ. He is interested in better understanding how the church can most convincingly and articulately display the beauty of the Triune God in its worship, life together, and mission.
Ryan has been blessed to serve congregations in Indiana (Second Presbyterian and Tabernacle Presbyterian in Indianapolis) and Oklahoma (First Presbyterian Church Tulsa). He has been married for ten wonderful years to his beautiful and talented bride, Heather. Heather is an attorney working in the tax exempt organization field. Ryan and Heather have two increasingly cute and hilarious boys, Elijah (2 years) and Jonah (10 months). In the fall you’ll find the Moores cheering for the Oklahoma Sooners, and during basketball season it’s all Duke Blue Devils!
