Rev. Kirk Moore is the co-minister and Music Director at InSpirit Center for Spiritual Living Orange County established in May 1999.
Kirk is a native Californian, born and raised in Redondo Beach, California. Kirk and his wife Sandy, the founding minister, raised their two daughters in Los Angeles County and Orange County. Tragically, their older daughter, Tara, was killed in an automobile accident in 1992 at the age of fifteen.
Kirk has studied piano and music since the age of four and was quite involved with musical theatre during high school and college. In 1972, he created his own band, Moore & More that performed in clubs throughout the Los Angeles area.
Kirk’s relationship with God has been a deep and motivating factor in his life from a very young age. He has been involved with Religious Science since 1980 when he and Sandy discovered the Redondo Beach Church of Religious Science, which was in direct alignment with his belief system. After moving to Orange County in 1988, Kirk and Sandy started attending the Capistrano Valley Church of Religious Science and became extremely involved with the church and diligently pursued their studies.
When Kirk lost his fifteen-year-old daughter, his life took on a new dimension and his life course was altered forever. Kirk and Sandy opened a store in San Juan Capistrano in 1993 called Tara’s Angels, which experienced worldwide attention through numerous television appearances and the cover of People magazine. The store became a haven for healing and understanding by those who came to visit. Eventually, spiritual classes were offered in the store during the evening.
Kirk has authored two books, which are non-fictional accounts of his spiritual odyssey and evolutionary life; Tara’s Angels: One Family’s Journey of Courage and Healing and Touched by Tara — the Healing Power of Love.
From all the people who visited the store and wanted to learn more about the spiritual universe, it was a natural progression to create a spiritual center. In May of 1999, The Center for Universal Truth was born.
Kirk, with his in-depth and experienced musical background, became the musical director and an integral part of the Center and its continued growth. The Center has a band, on-staff singer, various musical guests and a dynamic choir. Kirk continues to grow the music program as the Center grows and flourishes. Kirk teaches classes and is very involved in special programs at the Center.
Kirk is an integral part of the leadership at InSpirit teaching, developing inspirational music all in an effort to continue creating a place of love, healing and inspiration.
