Meet our leadership team
Dennis Moore - Lead Pastor
HUSBAND, FATHER, COUNSELOR. RUNNER, LOYAL GEORGIA BULLDOG FAN
Dennis was appointed lead pastor to LifePoint in 2008. He believes God uses ordinary people for extraordinary things, and that big questions lead to true growth. He doesn't believe people who say they "can't" run (because they really mean they don't WANT to run!), and willingly spends his early mornings racking up miles on the trails around Kansas City.
Kimberly Moore - Student & Family Director
WIFE. MOTHER. TEACHER. S'MORES CHEF. MARY POPPINS FAN. CHALLENGED SLEEPER
Kimberly, affectionately called Kiki by most of our LifeKids, loves teaching children and helping them grow in their understanding of Christ. Married to Dennis for 27 years with two grown kids and three adopted dogs, she's overdue for a vacation, but loves to spend her time with friends and family.
Jim Hoopingarner - Music Director
LIFE MATE. DADDY. SON. DOG HUGGER. MUISC FAN. BROTHER. PLANT BUYER.
Jim is a loyal KC sports fan who has loved music since he was a little boy. He believes worship is an important way we experience our relationship with God. Jim enjoys just being at home with his family, (and buying new plants at Colonial Gardens). He is continually awed and humbled by what God has done with his life. He wears his heart on his sleeve and plays the songs that make him cry.
Melissa Shipman - Communications and Engagement
WIFE. MOMMA. DREAMER. WRITER. DIYER. BOOK LOVER. CHEESE EATER. HOMEBODY.
Melissa and her husband Wyatt are grateful (and tired) parents to Will and Emma. She thinks redesigning and remodeling a room is a great way to spend a weekend...or maybe every weekend?? She believes in sharing stories, creating community, taking walks, and eating chocolate chip cheesecake.
Mackenzie Moore - Service Programming Director
MBA STUDENT. DOG MOM. HUFFLEPUFF. LATTE LOVER. KETTLE CORN OBSESSED.
Mackenzie believes God shows himself in the details, which is why she keeps an eye on all of the specifics for our services. When she’s not at work or in classes, she loves playing with her dogs, taking long drives with the music up, and searching for hidden gems.
Ryan and Hallie McCord - Youth Leaders
Ryan and Hallie joined the LifePoint Crossing leadership team in 2018 as our youth pastors.
