Chris Moore was privileged to grow up in Kenya working along side his parents, Tom & LaDell Moore. During their years of ministry to the African people, God allowed them to experience thousands of salvations and baptisms, build Bible Colleges and develop over 30 churches. Chris attended Rift Valley Academy for seven years, graduating in 1985. The following year, he returned to America and served in the US NAVY for four years. During his service in Charleston, South Carolina, God brought him to Lisa and they were married. Since their marriage in 1988, Chris and Lisa have worked side-by-side in different areas of ministry.

In 2007 Chris and Lisa Moore founded Real 4 Christ Ministries. They began traveling back and forth to Kenya while raising funds in the United States. In 2008 they received approval from the Baptist Bible Fellowship International and today more than 50 of these churches support them monthly through their missions giving. Their home church, Hallmark Baptist in Ft. Worth, Texas along with Pastor Jon Haley, have an integral part in supporting Real 4 Christ Ministries. In 2010, Real 4 Christ began partnering with MANNA Worldwide to feed the children in each of their schools. More than 1,000 nutritious meals are served each day with the assistance from this amazing organization.

Today, Chris and Lisa live full time on the coast of Kenya. Chris spends most of his time training the national people to run the day-to-day operation of the churches, schools, and feeding centers that are established in the remote villages. Lisa uses her nursing education to administrate the operation of each clinic and help meet the physical needs of the Kenyan people. By providing free medicine to the school children, their families and communities surrounding the villages, Real 4 Christ is able to drastically change lives forever.

Chris and Lisa are blessed with two amazing children. Their daughter, Crystal lives with her family in Oklahoma and their son Brandon with his family in Texas.

Our Board

God: We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.

Jesus:We believe in the personality and deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power in glory.

Holy Spirit:We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live godly lives.

Bible:We believe in the divine verbal inspiration of the Scriptures. The whole Bible, is without error. As the revelation of God, we believe the Bible to be the sole authority and sufficiency with regard to Christian faith and practice.

Man: We believe that man was originally created in the image of God. Adam fell through sin, and as a consequence of his sin, lost his spiritual life. The spiritual death, or total depravity of human nature, has been transmitted to the entire human race of man, the Man Christ Jesus alone being exempt. Thus every person is born into the world with a nature that is essentially an unchangeably sinful apart from divine grace.

Salvation:We believe that, due to the universal death through sin, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless born again. Our redemption has been accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus. We believe that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in Christ. No other acts, such as confession, baptism, prayer, faithful service, or manifestation of certain spiritual gifts, are to be added to believing as a condition of salvation.
