R. York Moore: CCO President, CEO, and National Evangelist
It is with great enthusiasm that we announce that R. York Moore will assume the role of President, CEO, and National Evangelist of the CCO beginning on May 9!
The CCO Board of Directors unanimously approved the recommendation from the Search and Nominating Committee for York to serve in this role.
When the Search and Nominating Committee was formed, the objective was to discern who God might be calling to lead the CCO into this next season—recognizing that it would require someone capable of building trust and working collaboratively in advancing the ministry and the organization in pursuit of our God-given mission of transforming college students to transform the world.
We identified key areas that the next CEO should embody, including:
- Spiritual maturity
- Passion for college students
- Understanding of worldview
- Servant leadership
- Visionary leadership
- Public communication skills
- Fundraising abilities
In nominating R. York Moore, the committee believes—and the Board affirms—that York is a person who epitomizes these characteristics and qualities.
For the past 27 years, York has served with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in roles such as Executive Director of Catalytic Partnerships, Associate Director for Advancement, and National Evangelist. Within that ministry, he developed and collaborated with strategic partnerships in the “Price of Life” campaign, which brought together leaders and volunteers seeking solutions to the problems of human trafficking.
And York is no stranger to the CCO. In 2014, he spoke at the Jubilee conference. More recently, he initiated a broad coalition of organizations to form the Every Campus movement, which includes the CCO.
Finally, we are grateful for the service of Dan Dupee as Interim President over the past 16 months. Dan will continue to work alongside York for a short period to assist in the transition of executive leadership.
Thank you for praying for us during this search process. As the ministry of the CCO moves forward with York as President, we invite you to continue to pray for this new season, that the Lord might be glorified in the CCO's ongoing ministry on college campuses all over the country.
