LEADERSHIP

Van Moody has a passion for transforming people, organizations and the world. With a background in leadership, business and ministry, he is qualified uniquely to position and empower people for success in every aspect of their lives.

In 2016 Moody became a member of Dr. Oz’s Core Team and has been featured several times on the Dr. Oz Show on ABC. He writes frequently for The Christian Post and Fox News and his other articles have been featured in Essence Magazine, Investors’ Business Daily, Forbes, American Express Open Forum, Maxim and many others. He is the author of two bestselling books The People Factor (Thomas Nelson) and The I-­Factor (Thomas Nelson) and his new book Desired By God (Thomas Nelson) will be released this fall.

Moody also assists in leading Macedonia International Bible Fellowship (MIBF), a global network of pastors and churches. In October 2018, he was consecrated to the sacred office of Bishop in The Lord’s Church to serve as the Assistant to the Presiding Bishop of MIBF, Dr. Kenneth C. Ulmer.

The Atlanta, Ga native is a graduate of DePauw University (Greencastle, Ind.), the Interdenominational Theological Center (Atlanta), and Harvard Universities Summer Leadership Institute (Cambridge, Mass.).  He is currently pursuing his second doctoral degree at Biola University (La Mirada, CA).

In March 2006, Moody established The Worship Center in Birmingham. This thriving church serves more than 5,000 members in three locations, with five weekly services and an online campus viewed from as far away as Kuwait.

With his unique ability to understand and communicate timeless truths in relevant, contemporary ways, Moody challenges and equips his congregation and the world to fulfill their potential and live their purpose. Known for his keen insights, Moody is a strong visionary, and a sought-­after speaker and leader.

Moody lives in Birmingham, AL with his wife Dr. Ty, their two children Eden Sydney and Ethan Isaiah and their golden-­doodle dog Teddy Bear.
