Campbell University alumnus Christopher Moore (’01,’05) has been accepted into Baylor University’s Baptist College and University Scholars (BCU) program, a partnership of the Baylor Graduate School and the International Association of Baptist Colleges and Universities (IABCU).
Moore, who received his undergraduate degree and a master of divinity from Campbell, went on to obtain another master’s degree in theology from Duke Divinity School. He will pursue a Ph.D. in church history at Baylor beginning in July.
The Baylor College and University Scholars program was established to strengthen the ties among IABCU member schools by identifying promising undergraduate or graduate scholars. According to program information, BCU’s main objective is to “stem the ‘dying of the light’ by providing a continued education for bright students in a Baptist university committed to its religious identity.”
Moore, an outstanding Campbell student, graduated magna cum laude in 2001 and was named a “Graduate of Distinction” by the Campbell Divinity School in 2005. He also received the Donald B. Keyser Church History Award for the highest average in church history courses as an undergraduate. He currently serves as an adjunct instructor of religion at Campbell University and Sampson Community College and is the Minister of Education, Children and Senior Adults at Durham Memorial Baptist Church. Moore and his wife Amie, also a Campbell graduate, lived in Raleigh until their recent move to Texas. They have a daughter, Clara Rose and are expecting another girl later this year. Amie Moore recently left her position at the Biblical Recorder as circulation manager.
