We have some bittersweet news to share: Juanita Moore has moved with her daughter Carolyn and four grandchildren to Norfolk, Virginia. While she regrets the short timeline the move necessitated, Juanita is excited to move with her family and for the blessing of new opportunities that the move provides them. A consistent smile behind the cafe counter, a loud laugher and big hugger, a much loved member of the staff and a steady presence for so many in the church, Juanita will be missed by many at BridgePointe.
One day in the spring of 2016, Juanita asked Jared if she could help keep the church clean. She was already involved in the cafe and First Impressions team and saw a need that could be met. Soon she became a part-time member of the staff and helped launch our Sunday Prep team. Juanita mobilized a group of people that met to prepare the building for Sundays by cleaning and praying for the upcoming services.
Juanita, a.k.a. “Mama ‘Nita”, shared her motherly love with the staff and many in the church. In 2017 she helped to start BridgePointe’s Celebrate Recovery group and formed many close relationships through that endeavor. With the move to the new space, Juanita’s team had to grow considerably to meet the demands of a much larger space.
For those of you who know Juanita, you know the gap that has been created by her move. Join us in praying for her and her family – pray they will continue to seek and serve the Lord and make an impact for His Kingdom.
