About the author

Carolyn Moore is an ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. She was born and
raised in Augusta, Georgia and is a graduate of UGA (B.A. 1985) and Asbury Theological Seminary (M.Div. 1998; D.Min. 2018).

After graduation from seminary, Carolyn served for five years as an associate pastor at Athens First United Methodist church (Athens, Georgia). In June of 2003, she was appointed home again to the Augusta area, where she and her family were given the joy of birthing Mosaic United Methodist Church. Carolyn and her family still serve Mosaic today. This community has her heart.


Carolyn has been joyfully married since 1986 to Steve Moore, a U.S. History teacher at Greenbrier High School in Evans. Their daughter, Claire, is a graduate of Reinhardt University who designs online marketing opportunities for Southern Firefly. She is married to Pierce Drake, Director of Student Ministries at Providence United Methodist Church in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Carolyn believes from the depth of her heart that Claire Marie is perfect, and that Claire and Pierce together hung the moon. So, so proud of these guys.

As a preacher, Carolyn’s passion is helping people respond to the good news of Jesus. Seeing broken people healed and lost people saved is such a joy. As is her life as a mother, wife, writer, preacher and church planter.

About Mosaic

The community at Mosaic focuses on healing and holiness. Our character is missional. In our life together, we are Spirit-led and Christ-centered, and we have a heart especially for those in the margins.

Since its first public worship service in February, 2004, Mosaic has seen hundreds of baptisms and professions of faith. A satellite ministry serves downtown Augusta.

We operate by three core values that guide our choices for ministry and mission:

  • Jesus is at the center of everything we do.
  • All people matter.
  • Community is essential.
