Introducing Pastor Heidi Moore
Pastor Heidi is a Wisconsinite with deep Virginia roots having been formed in faith at Our Saviour's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Norge VA which is as Norwegian as the place name implies. Here just a few miles west of Williamsburg, she was confirmed, married, two children baptized and ordained.
She met her husband, Jai, during high school (though they were not high school sweethearts). Married for over 33 years, they have two children, Caitlin and Nathan.
Prior to attending college, she worked for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for 15 years, spending her final five in media relations with primary responsibilities for employee communications. At the same time she served as the youth minister for two large local churches. She graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion in 1998.
Pastor Heidi earned a Masters of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia SC in 2002. She served as an intern at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Virginia Beach, VA. Prior to ordination she was the interim pastor at Rejoice Lutheran, Chesapeake VA. She was ordained in 2003 and returned to Emmanuel to serve as associate pastor for Christian education and youth and later as interim senior pastor until 2010, when she followed her spouse to Northern Virginia.
She served as interim pastor at Messiah Lutheran, Alexandria from 2010 to 2012, and then as associate pastor for youth and young adults at Lord of Life Lutheran, as well as the Lutheran campus pastor for Northern Virginia Lutheran Campus Ministry at George Mason University and Northern Virginia Community College. She also served on the Metro DC Synod Youth Committee as well as the synod worship coordinator.
Pastor Heidi loves Jesus and is passionate about helping youth and young adults discover and live into the gift of God's faith at the intersection of life and God's word.
