Lakeway Christian Schools announced new Lakeway District Director of Christian Life
Morristown, TN – Lakeway Christian Schools is pleased to announce the addition of Pastor Brett Moore to their team as Lakeway District Director of Christian Life. This new role was created to help further develop and connect the Christian Life departments at Cornerstone Christian Academy, Pre-K – 5th Grade | Morristown, Tennessee and Lakeway Christian Academy, 6th – 12th Grade | White Pine, Tennessee.
“As a school system we are called to be Christ-Centered,” says Kevin Cline, Head of Schools. “We believe that Pastor Moore brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to share the gospel to everyone, especially students. His Christ centered, gospel focused approach to students is what we want our school system to be focused on. We are here to educate students and help them on their faith journey.”
Moore has been the Senior Pastor of Encounter Church | Ventura, California for almost the last year. “I took a 5000-mile trip to California to end up finding my calling again only 5 minutes from my previous church,” shared Brett Moore. “Calling is all about priorities and aligned gifting. I know that moving back to East Tennessee is what I’m called to do at this time.” Before his move to California, Moore served as the Associate Pastor at Arrowhead Church | Morristown, Tennessee from 2011 – 2021 overseeing the Next Generation focus of Arrowhead and serving as a regular teaching pastor on Sundays. Before Arrowhead Church, Moore served at 12 Stones | Lawrenceville, Georgia as the Student Pastor from 2006 – 2011. Moore is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity) and Carson-Newman University (Bachelor of Arts, Communications).
“There is nothing like when the gospel lands on a student. All the positives and optimistic opportunities come true,” Moore shared. “The future impact that the gospel can make on a student’s life can take all those things of shame and disappointment and turn them into one positive after another for Christ and in their own life.” Moore is excited to be coming back to East Tennessee and the opportunity to serve students, families, and the staff of Lakeway Christian Schools.
Joining Moore on this journey are his wife, Lane. The couple has two daughters: Julia (11 years old) and Annie June (7 years old), they are also excited to be moving back “home” to East Tennessee. Moore joins the Lakeway Christian Schools Team on April 4, 2022.
