Through his unique campus campaigns, “Justice Invitationals,” R. York Moore has been able to mobilize tens of thousands of faculty, students, churches, politicians, business leaders and others to passionately engage the issue of the commercial sexual exploitation of children while also challenging many “non and anti-churched” participants to follow Jesus Christ. Working widely with non-governmental and non-profit organizations, R. York Moore has been able to help forward the cause of front-line organizations in their work to fight human trafficking.
R. York Moore came to faith at the University of Michigan at the age of twenty as an Atheist philosophy honors student after a miraculous encounter with Jesus during an attempted suicide on Christmas Eve of 1989. Since his conversion, R. York Moore has shared Jesus with tens of thousands of university students and has helped lead InterVarsity to several consecutive years of the organization’s highest conversion numbers.
