CASSIE A.H. MOORE

As an author, speaker, & educator, Moore is an avid student of culture and weaves her interests in humanity, history, travel, and new experiences through her writing.

Moore is author of Authentic Youth Ministry: Straight Talk about Working with Kids, Teens & In-Betweens and contributing author for Connected for Life: Essential Guide to Youth Ministry. She’s also published over 80 articles for the international column, Inside the Teen Mind, for YouthESource.

She’s enjoyed opportunities to share her insights about youth & education in speaking engagements across North America & Canada.

Growing up in Illinois and Minnesota, she earned a degree from Concordia University in Irvine, California, and has served as an educator since 2008. She’s taught & spoken to thousands of students of all ages in the course of her career.

Additionally, she served on the senior planning team for three National Youth Gatherings, conference planning for over 90,000 teens and leaders from all over the world.

Moore experienced a diverse childhood, including frequent trips to art museums, body building competitions, cross-country road trips, and educational tours of maximum-security prisons. She dabbled in a little bit of everything: ballet, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track and cross country, horse-back riding, painting and sculpting classes, photography, belly-dancing, and toothpaste-making.

Her love of writing started with the fourth grade class newspaper and continued through college, where she earned an award for her academic research papers. She’s written for and been editor of nearly a dozen newspapers through grade school, high school, and college, including two large-scale underground publications that had cult followings. She has twice been awarded the WordPress “Freshly Pressed” award, nominated as a top blogger of over 500,000 writers.

Cassie and her husband, Tyler, have two Australian Shepherds. She enjoys observing culture, travel, kayaking, exploring new places, painting, reading, and talking to strangers. Her books, Authentic Youth Ministry and Connected for Life: Essential Guide to Youth Ministry, are available through Concordia Publishing House or Amazon.

A travel enthusiast, Moore has visited Cuba, Germany, Scotland, Austria, Ireland, Italy, France, Iceland, Switzerland, Luxembourg, England, Northern Ireland, Belgium, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, the Netherlands, the Cayman Islands, and nearly every state in the United States of America.
