Innovista Staff Sam Moore Ireland

Sam Moore

Sam Moore is the Director of Innovista Ireland. Born in Scotland, Sam grew up in Belfast where he attended Queen’s University and worked for nine years leading student ministry.

Sam says, "My journey of following Jesus took various twists and turns before Christian family and friends inspired me to take this commitment seriously at 18. Experiences in the Developing world gave me a hunger for social justice and I’m passionate about helping people reach their God-given potential and bring the transforming power of God’s Kingdom into every sphere of their lives. I began as a timid leader and have grown considerably through the investment of others with leadership experience ranging from a number of overseas mission teams to church small groups to an Irish student ministry."

Sam moved to Dublin to start Innovista Ireland in late 2009 before marrying Emily a year later. They live in inner city Dublin where they lead a small group together in their church.

Favourite Quote: "Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not?" George Bernard Shaw

Hobbies: I devour books, enjoy cycling, watch lots of football and rugby and love coffee and a good debate. I love sitting around with a bunch of friends over a leisurely meal figuring out how to change the world.

What I Do: I develop and train young leaders across Ireland, and help them to develop models of innovative mission that will serve, equip, and grow the church in Ireland.

Why I Do It: Seeing leaders freed to be who God is creating them to be, and bringing the hope and transformation of God's Kingdom to everything they touch is what makes me get out of bed in the morning.
