Youth Advance has been very blessed over the years to attract faithful, knowledgeable speakers who relate well to our Ambassadors. Returning in 2019, Andrew Moore will be the speaker for our Malvern event, and James Clark will be the speaker for our Wheeling event.

  • Andrew Moore

    Andrew is a resident of Vienna, WV, where he attended Ohio Valley University all those years-ago. It was there he met and married his wife Leachelle and have since had four awesome little ones (Judah, Gideon, Lenora, and Haven) - being a husband and father is just the coolest. He teaches English at Parkersburg High School and works at OVU as the Ultimate Frisbee coach. He also loves anything creative: movies, drawing, writing, reading, singing, photography...you name it! He is a member at the Grand Central Church and is amazed at how present and active God is there. He loves working with young people, always amazed at their insight and strength.
