Director of Fine Arts
Rev. John Moore is no stranger to CSCA and many of you. He has been the Music Pastor for FPC for many years and he will assume the role of Director of Fine Arts for CSCA in the 2016/17 school year.
John studied trumpet at Temple University. He completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in trumpet at the University of Miami. While living in Philadelphia, John played assistant 1st and 3rd trumpet with the Philly Pops Orchestra, extra trumpet with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and principal trumpet with the Pottstown Symphony, and Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra. John also was a founding member of the Westminster Brass.
John moved to Venezuela in 1982 and played principal trumpet in the National Symphony of Venezuela, Maracaibo, Venezuela, and in 1984, moved to Hollywood, Florida, where he played principal trumpet with the Miami Symphony, South Florida Symphony, Palm Beach Symphony, and the Miami City Ballet.
In 1991, John became Minister of Music at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Hollywood, Florida. After serving there for two years, he moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to serve as Director of Music and the Arts at Village Seven Presbyterian Church. John’s busy schedule at Village Seven still allowed him opportunity to play principal trumpet in the Pueblo Symphony and to be a member of the Denver Brass. In 1994, John answered a call from the session of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church to return as Minister of Music and full-time assistant to the pastor. He served in that capacity until 2008 and earned a Masters of Divinity degree from Knox Theological Seminary in 2006. He was called to be Minister of Music at First Presbyterian Church, Coral Springs, Florida, in 2008, where he was ordained as assistant pastor in 2013.
John is married to Jacqueline Moore, and they both are the proud parents of four girls: Kristin, Kimberly, Katherine, and Hannelore, and one boy, John Gregory. They are also proud grandparents of seven: Kaitlyn and Kaleb Quinn, Gregory, Gavin, Grayson and Gage Conde, and Annaliese Chess.
