Why is Charles Moore Going to the CMA?
Charles W. Moore, President of Northern Seminary, is departing to pastor a CMA church near Dayton. While attending Geneva College and Bethel Seminary, he served in ministry with the Christian and Missionary Alliance. But upon graduating from seminary, he served at American Baptist churches in Illinois, Ohio, and had a great run at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, Michigan.
Why is he returning to the pastorate--in a Christian and Missionary Alliance church? Is it just a return to roots--or to get out the ABC zoo?
Or a better question: when was the last time a sucessful CMA seminary president left that position to pastor an ABC church?
