The Reverend Carole M. Moore professes and strives to serve God’s intentional purpose through her teaching and preaching. Several leadership opportunities in the American Baptist Women’s Ministries encouraged her decision to respond to God’s call into ministry. Rev. Moore was initially confirmed in the faith through the Roman Catholic Church and was later baptized as a Protestant, joining Trinity Baptist Church in 1981. As a lay person, she served at the regional and national level of the American Baptist Churches, USA, Convention, advancing international initiatives.
Licensed to Preach the Gospel in 2002, she decided to respond more fully to God’s call to prepare for ministry by retiring from the teaching profession after 39 years of service in 2004 from Palo Alto Unified School District. Acknowledging the thread of urgency, she completed her coursework and earned the Master of Divinity (M. Div.) degree and received the 2008 Jessie Day Drexler Award for Outstanding Competence in the Area of Pastoral Ministries at the Berkeley School of Theology, formerly American Baptist Seminary of the West. In 2010, she was ordained without reservation at Trinity Baptist Church. She is a recognized ordained minister of the American Baptist Churches, USA.
