With an unparalleled commitment to God and her family, Dr. Ty Moody is a woman who knows no limits. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Moody’s dedication to education has been relentless. With an extensive background in community leadership, elementary education, educational leadership and instructional reading for grades K-12, her desire to develop and implement strategies to help student’s achievement greatness and increase in knowledge and skill have taken her from the role of Substitute Teacher to College Professor. As a student at University of Florida in Gainesville, Dr. Moody attained both a Bachelor and Master’s Degree in Education. Her pursuit for higher education continued with a Specialist Degree in Ed Administration and in 2008, she achieved her Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.

Having spent much of her life in the state of Florida, Dr. Moody has worked tirelessly with others to develop strategic plans for school success, create initiatives for school-wide reading awareness, and chaired forums to encourage stakeholders to work together for continuous school and process improvement. Now a resident of Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Moody assists her husband, Bishop Vanable H. Moody, II, with many facets of their ministry, including but not limited to, ministry development and management. As leader of The Worship Center Christian Church’s Women’s Ministry, Dr. Moody teaches classes, and annually hosts The Worship Center’s Women’s Empowerment Weekend. Most recently, Dr. Ty established Einstein’s Playground, a children’s learning and development center, with locations housed inside both The Worship Center’s Bessemer and Derby campuses. In addition to her full-time responsibilities as the wife of the Senior Pastor and Founder of The Worship Center Christian Church, her greatest joy is the having the ability to nurture and care for their two children, Eden Sydney and Ethan Isaiah.
