From one of the world’s largest universities to Hollywood’s most prolific television producer to America’s largest communities of faith to multiple presidential candidates and a multi-billion-dollar financial services firm, Johnnie Moore has been America’s go-to communications strategist when the stakes are high and the mission is critical.
Johnnie Moore founded KAIROS after running public relations across multiple sectors including higher education, entertainment, and politics. He has worked with every major print, digital and broadcast outlet in North America and has extensive experience in more than 50 countries around the world.
He began his career at the 100,000-student Liberty University where he served as the school’s Senior Vice President for Communications during the time when Liberty University added more than 75,000 students to its annual enrollment and added more than $1.2 billion to its endowment and cash reserves. After a dozen years at Liberty University, and before founding KAIROS, Moore was personally recruited by Emmy award-winning mega-producer Mark Burnett (“Survivor,” “Shark Tank,” “The Voice,” “Celebrity Apprentice“) to serve as Chief of Staff and Vice President of Faith Content for his United Artists Media Group (an MGM company).
Rev. Johnnie Moore is also a member of clergy. As a noted evangelical Christian leader he is best known for his consequential work at the intersection of faith and foreign policy in the Middle East. In 2020, he was named one of America’s ten most influential religious leaders, he is the President of The Congress of Christian Leaders, serves on ADL’s “task force for Middle East minorities,” and is the youngest-ever recipient of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s prestigious “medal of valor” for his efforts rescuing Christians from ISIS in 2015. He is also a Commissioner on the bipartisan U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom, appointed by the President of the United States.
