Oaks Christian School welcomes aboard Eddie Moore as the new Chief Development Officer, charged with executive oversight of the school's philanthropic efforts in support of the OCS mission. As such, Moore will lead the advancement team in all fundraising efforts and constituent engagement opportunities and serve as a member of the OCS Senior Leadership Team.
Moore brings his extensive development and relationship building experience to Oaks Christian School, most recently as the director of development at Valley Christian Schools in San Jose where he led and executed the development department's vision and strategy.
"I am excited about leading the advancement efforts which connect the generous hearts of families with the mission of Oaks Christian School. This genuine connection is what has built a strong culture of giving at Oaks, and I look forward to helping that continue. I am also really looking forward to joining a community of high-achieving, professional educators who love the Lord," he shared.
An Arizona native who hails from Tucson, Moore received his Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology with a minor in Christian studies from California Baptist University in Riverside, CA. Moore and his wife, Leisa (who is in her 18th year teaching middle school science), have two beautiful daughters and future Lions, Kaylyn, 9, and Avery, 7, and a two-year-old boy, Keaton. The Moores have been married 16 years and are excited to get settled in the beautiful Conejo Valley.
"Oaks Christian School is thrilled to be welcoming Mr. Moore to the OCS Senior Leadership Team," said OCS Head of School Rob Black. "Given Mr. Moore's extensive experience at Valley Christian Schools in the Bay Area, I have no doubt that he will make a significant contribution to Oaks Christian School as we continue to grow as a learning community."
Passionate about his family, Moore also loves listening to jazz, playing golf, supporting Giants baseball (a challenge in Los Angeles, he good-humoredly admits), and solidifying the success of Christian education in California for his daughters and future generations.
