Bishop Faye Moore
Our current leader, Bishop Faye Moore, was born in the state of Mississippi in the 1928. She is a life-long member of the Church of the Living God, and was raised by strong, God-fearing and faithful parents who were involved in Church leadership until their demise. Bishop Moore was appointed as Senior Bishop/Chief Overseer of the Church of the Living God – Jewell Dominion on June 12, 2005, and has worked fervently since her appointment to increase the growth of the Church, spiritually, physically, financially, and geographically.
Prior to becoming Senior Bishop/Chief Overseer, Bishop Moore served as Chairman of the Board of Directors, as well as spearheaded our annual Youth Church Bible Quiz events. She taught Sunday Bible School and Biblical workshops for the National Headquarters for many years, and under the past leadership, established the first Sunday School Books for the Church of the Living God – Jewell Dominion. Her workshop classes were always exciting because of her enthusiastic style of teaching. She was also very active as Chaplain of the Camp Jewell ministry (a Church-owned summer camp for all young people).
On a personal note, Bishop Moore established the first black-owned foster care service in the Macomb County of Michigan, and was heavily involved in prison ministry for many years. It was always her desire to be self-employed and she was a scholar for raising money to support the Church and youth ministries. This self-taught woman of God could always be found reading and study her Bible and other books to build up her knowledge and supplement her God-given wisdom.
Bishop Moore is an advocate for young people and has spent many years working to raise funds to support youth programs and trips; and she witnessed to so many while selling hot dogs and soda pops in areas where most men and women would never dare to go. She never feared what might happen to her, but always remained focused on what God had placed in her heart to do for the up building of His kingdom on earth.
Bishop Moore has never met a stranger or anyone who was insignificant or worthless in her eyes, but has stretched forth her hands and arms of love to all people, believing in her heart that God made everyone equal. This is the platform that she stands on in her administration – “Everybody is somebody in God’s eyes!”
She is a giving leader, who continues to lead the people of God with loving kindness and tender mercy as she exhorts and teaches them how to work together in the spirit of love and give God their very best.
