Joy Moore loves preschoolers and their families! She wants preschoolers to love to come to church and for them to begin to develop a love for and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Believing that Jesus came for all people, regardless of abilities, Joy also has a heart for the continuing development and growth of the Special Needs ministry at FBC. Joy's own love for Christ has guided her ministry to the families of FBC.

Joy and her family have been members of FBC since 1971. As a member here, she served as Sunday School teacher, Sunday School Coordinator for Children and Preschool, Worship Care Coordinator, Children's Choir Leader, Sanctuary Choir Member and Music Secretary.

In 1985, Joy was called to be Director of the Weekday Early Education Ministry of FBC. In February of 2002, she was called as FBC's Minister of Preschool. Joy is active in supporting preschool and children's organizations statewide and nationally. She has led preschool conferences in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Joy has served on the State of Alabama Vacation Bible School team and has led VBS clinics for the Madison Baptist Association on several occasions. She has served in leadership capacities in  Tennessee Valley Association for Young Children (TVAEYC) and Madison County Day Care Director's Association. In addition to sharing Jesus with preschoolers and their families at FBC, Joy has been part of mission teams to Spain, The Gambia, Mali, and Guatemala.

Joy is married to Michael, whom she met while they were both students at Samford University. After their wedding, his graduation from Law School and a short time in Montgomery, Alabama, the Moore family moved to Huntsville. Joy and Michael were blessed to raise their own three children at FBC Huntsville.

When not ministering to the preschoolers of First Baptist, Joy is active in Federated Woman's Club work and enjoys spending time with her children and their families.
