Greg Moore has been involved with Presbyterian music ministries his entire life. Growing up as a Presbyterian in Charlotte, NC, he credits both the vocal and handbell choir experiences of his childhood as the catalyst for his still burning desire to make music for our Lord. Greg has led contemporary worship services for both Robinson Presbyterian in Charlotte and Faith Presbyterian Church in Indian Land, SC. If he’s not making music at ARPC, you’ll find him on stages around the area making perhaps less reverent music with his band Province Of Thieves. Greg holds down a full-time career as a Husband to Amanda and Father to son Gabe and daughter Chloe, and somehow manages to squeeze a second full-time career as a business manager in the supply chain industry. Greg graduated from Garinger High School in 1990, UNC-Charlotte in 1999, and obtained an MBA from Montreat College in 2005. Greg is also a military combat veteran, having served in the Army during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
