Pastor Jody

Pastor Jody Moore is a native of Compton, California, where he grew up serving in a small United Methodist Church. Growing up, he served as an acolyte, usher, and a counter within the church. At age nine, Pastor Moore sensed that he was called to something greater within Christian Leadership and Ministry. However, it was not until he was fifteen years of age that he understood his calling into the Pastoral Ministry.

After graduating from High School in the city of Cerritos, California Pastor Moore attended El Camino Community College. From there he attended Texas Southern University majoring in Economics & Public Affairs.

After returning to Los Angeles from Houston, Pastor Moore served as Assistant to The Pastor, at Crossroads United Methodist Church under Dr. Lydia J. Waters. He served for over five years at Crossroads. Then God called him to serve as the Assistant to The Pastor at the Vermont
Square United Methodist Church. In 1996, Pastor Moore was certified as a Candidate for Ordained Ministry within the California-Pacific Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, and in 1998 he was licensed to preach under the same jurisdiction. From 1999 to 2001 Pastor Moore served as Pastor of Christian Education at the First United Methodist Church of Alhambra. There, he had the opportunity to oversee many ministries; nevertheless, his greatest joy came from being the teaching-pastor
 for the college age/young adult group.

On September 4, 1999, Pastor Moore was married to his lovely wife, formally Ms. Keniya Ulmer.

In April of 2001, under the providential hand of God he was called to serve as Pastor of Stewardship and Economic development at The Faithful Central Bible Church. He was a member of the senior pastoral team, and also served as the Executive Pastoral Assistant to Dr. Kenneth Ulmer. Pastor Moore was Ordained to the Office of Pastor on December 2, 2001. Pastor Moore served as the Senior Pastor-Teacher of Praise Tabernacle Bible Church in the City of Chino for 17 years. Educated at Talbot School of Theology he has held executive leadership roles both in ministry and in several Fortune 500 companies. Pastor Moore specializes in leadership development and organizational assessment. He has served on the boards of several non-profits.
He is the published author of “God’s Will is Greater Than Your Plan”
and “The Man Who Mirrors God’s Heart”.

Late in 2017 Pastor Moore felt a shift taking place and followed the prompting of the Holy Spirit to launch Transformation Church on October of 2019. This is a thriving new work still focused on ministering to the Inland Empire.
