The Rev. Dr. Allison Moore is our Interim Pastor as St. Barnabas goes
through the discovery process of calling a new rector. Allison
brings more than 20 years of pastoral experience. Most recently, she
helped the church of St. Mark’s in the Bowery go through the same
process we are undertaking. Prior to that, she served for 18 years at
Church of the Good Shepherd in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Prior to that
long service, she had more interim experience. Allison’s ministry
began only a few miles away at Grace Church in White Plains.
In addition to Allison’s pastoral experience, she completed formal
interim-clergy and search-consultant training in the Dioceses of New
York and Newark. This practical development is on top of her academic
qualifications that include a Ph.D. in Religious & Theological Studies
from Boston University, a Masters in Theological Studies from Harvard,
and a Masters in Psychology from Yale. Her community ministries are
numerous with an emphasis on outreach, which complements our work here at St. Barnabas.
Allison has two daughters, Avery who’s working in New York City, and
Marin, a senior in high school in Demarest, New Jersey.
