BRIAN MOORE

Brian Moore is the Lead Pastor at Crosspointe Church in Anaheim, CA. Before coming to Southern California, Brian served as the Campus Pastor at Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO, where God used him to speak at numerous youth camps, conferences, and churches. At that time he also earned his Master of Arts in church ministry.

Brian became the pastor of Crosspointe Church, Yorba Linda, in December of 2006, shortly after a devastating situation had crippled the ministry. With 70 faithful people left, Brian replanted the ministry and has led it to incredible growth both numerically and spiritually.

Over the past 16 years, the church has grown to nearly 1,500 in attendance every Sunday with campuses in Ventura and Brea. Crosspointe is known for their love of people, their love for their community, and for bringing Hope to people through the love of Jesus Christ.

Brian loves spending time with his wife, Shannon, and his three children, who they adopted from the Philippines. Brian also loves leadership, reading, working out at the gym, and playing basketball.

I exist to glorify God by helping others unlock and apply their God-given talents and strengths.

Today, Kevin is privileged to connect his life purpose with Radical Mentoring’s purpose. Day-to-day, he sets the vision and strategy for Radical Mentoring, serving as an evangelist to new audiences and an invaluable resource to churches using small group mentoring in disciple-making strategy.

Todd coaches senior pastors and worship leaders on how to create engaging worship services, how to build unified teams, and how to become better leaders on stage and off.
