Sherrie Moore

Sherrie MooreRev. Sherrie Moore is an ordained minister, who, along with her husband, has served in various capacities within the church community.  These experiences include pastoral ministry among adults, teens and children, as well as writing music, dramas and creative dance. Rev. Moore and her husband moved to Richmond in 1992 to work with a local assembly, which eventually led to establishing The Common Thread, a ministry dedicated to mobilize prayer and action among churches and organizations in the Richmond metropolitan area.  In 2006, they established RIHOPE (the Richmond Int'l House of Prayer and Encounter) in Shockoe Bottom which serves as a prayer and training base.  Rev. Moore's work over the last several years has included focus on the history of Richmond for the purposes of reconciliation and healing.  It was during this time that she became aware of the rich Jewish heritage through a book entitled Richmond Jewry:  1769 - 1976, Shabbat in Shockoe.  Rev. Moore met Jay Ipson on a visit to the Virginia Holocaust Museum.  She later brought her friend Rosemary Schindler to meet Jay and tour the museum.  It was during this time that she became aware of Jay's mission to prevent injustice towards anyone by bringing awareness of Holocaust history, using his own experience as a Holocaust survivor.  This mutual desire to awaken people to the seriousness of the hour in which we live has resulted in Rev. Moore's commitment to assisting Jay by serving on the Jay Ipson Holocaust History Lecturer committee.  Rev. Moore has served on various committees with state-wide focus.  In addition to her regular ministry work, she serves as the Virginia Representive for Intercessors for America with special focus on community transformation.
