Tod Moore, Founder/President of New Day Ministries, Inc a Grassroots Nonprofit Organization. In 1991, Mr. Moore was arrested and charged with 3 counts of Capital Murder, Capital Kidnapping and Robbery. After serving 26 and 1/2 years, Tod was released from prison. However, while in prison, Tod experienced the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Tod graduated from Western High School and went on to University of Louisville. During the 26 and ½ years in prison, Tod shared the love of Jesus with other inmates, helped inmates obtain their GED and assisted inmates with strategies for parole. While in prison Tod formed strong relationships with men coming into the prison to build relationships with inmates through bible study, fatherhood and positive life skills classes. Strong relationships were formed and today, those relationships continue with many engaged in the work of New Day Ministries with Tod Moore.
Under Tod’s leadership New Day Ministries has put forth numerous L.O.V.E. WALKS and Breaking The Cycle Tours in several different impoverished Communities geared toward empowering the Youth and Young Adults with the necessary tools to overcome the Ills that plague them on a daily basis, such as Gang Violence, Drugs, Poverty, and Low academic proficiency.
Tod has had the opportunity to do Speaking Engagements at Southeast Christian Church, Midwest Church of Christ, Vision of Hope, Beargrass Christian Church, Calvary Church United Methodist, Harrods Creek Baptist Church, Southeast Christian Emmaus Bible Study, Run Women’s Conference in Dallas Texas, Shawnee High School, Waggener High School, all aimed at motivating youth, young adults, and families from inner-city neighborhoods. As a father of three wonderful adults Tod’s hearts desire is to STOP young people from getting caught up in a Life of Crime and to empower them with the necessary tools to be a success.
In 2020, Tod and New Day Ministries have put their focus on the Chickasaw Community with the sole purpose of investing in the lives of 16 youth ages 10 to 18 and help them to graduate from High School.
