Meet Our Staff 



Children's Ministry Director

Devona was born in Durango, graduated from Durango High school in 1977, and married Douglas Moore that same year. At the age of 33, God in His great love, grace and mercy saved her from what she deserved and gave her what she did not deserve! Her greatest desire is that children would come to know the Lord as their Savior and become mature Disciples of Christ. God’s promise tells us that what He has called us to, He will equip you for. God has equipped and is equipping her for every good work. Devona loves to paddle board, have water fights, take walks with her grandchildren, enjoy family and friends and to share the love of Christ with those around her. Devona has 5 children and 3 grandchildren.

What is FBD Kids?

The Great Commission is our MISSION! The Bible’s direct command in Matthew 28: 19-20 is to “Make Disciples”. Our teaching, our team, our time, our schedule, our special events; everything is about Jesus, the heart of the Gospel. Our desire is that children will hear the Gospel and come to know, love, and follow Christ, God’s only Son, and our Savior all the days of their lives, becoming mature disciples of Christ.
