Moore explores God’s Outdoors

(Continued)

ORANGE —

“Wow, the cobra thing was just awesome. I had always heard cobras were an ‘intelligent’ snake so to speak and on the ‘Serpent in the Garden’ episode you to see a glimpse of that.”

The seeds for the series was planted when he filmed some video clips for a class of the same name he taught at Community Church last spring and summer.

“Community is my home church and I am one of the volunteer children’s ministers. I just love kids and I have found that when I bring my ferret to see them or a snake or turtle I can reach them in a unique way. That led to adding videos to my weekly lessons and then it snowballed into this full blown series.”

Moore said despite the fact the budget was entirely from donations from “very kind people in the local business and church community” it looks very professional and the content it strong.

“I am my own worst critic and although it’s certainly not perfect I have never been this excited about a project. If anyone loves wildlife, her or she will have an appreciation for this even if they are not a follower of Christ. And if they are it will help the Bible come to life in a whole new way.”

You can check out the series beginning Monday at www.Godsoutdoors.com. You can log on now for a sample video and to sign up for a newsletter that announces each episode and gives access to exclusive content like behind the scenes footage and extended interviews.

“I am proud to still be writing and will always do that but this is the next phase of my career and I am proud to start here at home and do it in the name of the Lord,” Moore said.
