Bishop Moore is one of the most dynamic, innovative, anointed and gifted apostolic preachers created and equipped by God truly to be a voice and vision for “a changing generation.” Bishop Moore’s passion for serving Christ and loving His people has been evident through his preaching, teaching and living a life transformed by the Word of God. As God’s shepherd, he touches the hearts of his people inspiring them to pursue excellence in their lives by following Christ. Bishop Moore draws believers and non-believers through the power of the Gospel in conferences and crusades throughout the world.
Bishop Jeffrey A. Moore was born a native of our Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC. Bishop Moore was raised in a Christ-centered family moved by God-fearing Grandparents, baptized at age 8 and attended church regularly at both Tenth Street Baptist Church and Gethsemane Baptist Church in Washington, DC.
Bishop Moore is the founder and senior pastor of the New Birth Baptist Church in Vista (formerly Greater Antioch Baptist Church) since 1998, after establishing the gospel service at Camp Kinser in Okinawa, Japan. Bishop Moore has served in the ministry for over 23 years with 18 of those years leading God’s people to victory through his pastoral ministry. Under his leadership, the church body continues to grow from membership to discipleship and is truly blessed by God to be a culturally diverse place of worship for all people. The church receiving its charter from God being birthed from the model set in Acts 11:26, the membership has a genuine desire for the Word of God to guide their daily lives and to lift up other by sharing a “loving” spirit as given by our church mission and motto…”with love and kindness, I have drawn you” (Jeremiah 31:3). Bishop Moore believes that the power of God can only be magnified if the church works as one, unified body with God’s vision for the church being their ultimate objective, operating as a team in all aspects of ministry.
After serving in the Marine Corps and retiring with over 20 years of leadership experience, Bishop Moore’s primary concern is equipping God’s people through education and biblical training. Bishop Moore’s burning desire for people and insight from God caused the instituting of several Christian education classes, directing the operations of a fully accredited Christian University, planting of Bible colleges globally and birthing of new church ministries in Vista, California; Accra, Ghana; Nairobi, Kenya; Faisalabad, Pakistan and other areas as the seed of the Gospel spreads worldwide. Bishop Moore has served the community by being involved in such organizations as the Vista Community Clinic where he is the co-founder and Executive Board member of the North County African American Health Coalition (NCAAHC); Faith Based Community Development Corporation, NAACP, United Ministerial Coalition, Vista Methamphetamine Strike Force, San Diego Southern Baptist Convention, and Faith Works (PICO affiliate).
Bishop Moore served as the General Overseer, Western-Pacific Region (CA, AZ, OR, WA, NV, AK and HI) and Director of International Global Missions and Affairs for the Kingdom Destiny Fellowship International (KDFI) mentoring Pastors worldwide.
In 2010, the Board of Bishops selected Bishop Moore for elevation to the office of Bishop. After saturation in prayer, the move of the Lord and intense episcopacy training, Bishop Moore was consecrated to the Bishopric in St. Louis, MO on July 28, 2011 and reaffirmed in Baltimore, MD on August 26, 2011.
Bishop Moore now serves as the Founder and International Presiding Bishop of the New Birth Global Fellowship, a network fellowship of gospel ministers and churches globally. He is the Spiritual covering and mentor to international operations in Africa, Central America, Cuba, Europe, Far East Asia, South Asia and South America transforming and encouraging the lives of hundreds of Pastors and their ministries. He serves on the Boards of several interdenominational and ecclesiastical organizations. His vision is to connect Christians of all walks of life in a covenant relationship with other Christians, businesses and resources.
He also is the Founding President of the Bishop JA Moore Ministries International, Incorporated developed to provide holistic mentoring to Pastors, provide information and education in the areas of health, personal development, organizational structuring and financial planning. He also serves many other community and Christian organizations globally.
