Beth Moore Ministry
At the age of 18, Moore made a lifelong commitment to professional Christian ministry. Moore realized she needed to study more about the Bible when she volunteered to teach Sunday school. She attended a biblical doctrine lesson that ignited a passionate desire in her to understand the Bible, and she later started instructing a weekly Bible study class. She was giving sermons at churches all around South Texas by the middle of the 1990s when that class had increased to 2,000 women.
Broadman & Holman (later B&H), the publishing division of LifeWay Christian Resources, started publishing Moore’s Bible studies in 1994 despite the fact that she was still without any formal theological training. This led to Moore being active in the national speaking circuit. She started organizing weekend conferences across the nation with the aid of a worship group she put together. She established Living Proof Ministries to serve as the hub for her national speaking ministry.
A simulcast of her “Living Proof Live” was staged in 2008, and it is estimated that 70,000 viewers tuned in from 715 different locations. During the worst of the Great Recession, Lifeway Christian Stores had a “good” quarter thanks in part to the sales of her book on Esther. Moore claimed to support the Southern Baptist Convention’s complementarian theology which teaches that males and females have complementary roles and does not allow women to be pastors.
