The Rev. Christopher C. Moore is a permanent team member of the BCM ministry. He serves as assistant to the Rector, The Rev. Dr. Ketlen Solak, and shares the preaching rotation at the three member churches.
“It’s a real blessing to share this ministry,” says Chris. “Grace, Ascension and Calvary have made my wife Janice and me feel so welcome since we arrived. I look forward to participating on a more permanent basis in this ministry.”
Prior to his ministry at Grace, Chris served a collaborative ministry in Rehoboth from 2006 to 2013 as assistant to the rector at the Parish of All Saints’ Church and St. George’s Chapel where he alternated with the rector in preaching and celebrating at the two churches.
Ordained in 1974, Chris served churches in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and California. With degrees from Muhlenberg College, Drew University and Andover Newton Theological School, Chris also studied theology at Cambridge University in England. Accomplishments include running a Marathon in under four hours, winning an Emmy Award (along with his wife Janice) for Excellence in Religious Broadcasting, and writing and publishing three books on religion and psychology. His latest is Solitude: A Neglected Path to God (Cowley Press, 2001).
Chris and Janice live in Media, PA, with their two dogs and a cat, where he enjoys working on his one-acre property, hiking on the Appalachian Trail at the Delaware Water Gap, and spending time with his four grandchildren, aged three and under.
A life long member of The Church of the Ascension, I was so excited to become a chorister in the Junior Choir when I was eight. Choir was my whole life and I was so lucky to be surrounded by a faithful parish family who helped me to grow in the Light of Christ. I continued in choir ministry as a chorister in the Senior Choir until I was called to my present position.
I have served my parish as a lay reader and Eucharistic minister, Sunday School teacher, served on women’s guilds, altar guild and was the musician for the Brandywine Parishes Vacation Bible School for many years.
I studied piano with the late Blema J. Tatman, and was inspired to play organ by the late Mabel Bard Pierce, and the late J. Harrison Walker. At Westminster Choir College, I took classes to become a licenced Kindermusick teacher and I was fortunate to take a workshop with the late Helen Kemp, an extraordinary master teacher of creative teaching pedagogy for young singers. I recently semi retired from St. David’s Episcopal Day School after twenty six years, but I still work as their music specialist, helping the children prepare for their Halloween and Christmas Programs and playing music for their weekly chapel service.
At Calvary Church, I served as Junior Choir Director from 1988 until the summer of 1996 and my great grandparents on both sides of my father’s family were members of Grace Church, so I feel a connection with all three parishes.
My husband Gilbert and I have three daughters, three son in laws, three grandchildren and two step grandchildren.
Mark Foulsham was born and raised in Wilmington Delaware, but currently lives a more rural life in Toughkenamon Pennsylvania. He has been playing music in churches since he was 10. He completed his undergraduate degree in Oberlin College & Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio and received an MBA degree from the University of Delaware.
He works in Financial Services and Banking and in his spare time enjoys farming, blues music, and stone masonry. His preferences in classical and religious music favors English 17th through 20th century composers such as Byrd, Tallis Stanford and others.
He just recently celebrated his 10th anniversary as music director here at Grace and is moved that the congregation is so appreciative of our choir and the music we provide each week. When not directing our choir on Sundays, he can be found leading his Chicago-style blues band Blues Mojo at local venues.
I am a fourth generation member of Church of the Ascension. I have been the Treasurer and part of the Administration Team for the past 4 years. I am an active member and business owner in the community of Claymont.
I am married to Leo Mozzoni and we have 3 children, ages 18, 12 and 9.
I have been a member of Calvary Church, Hillcrest since 2004. I am one of the founding members of the Brandywine Collaborative Ministries. I am very proud of all that we have accomplished so far. The BCM is leading the way in a new structure of ministry. Once my tenure as Sr. Warden was over, I was asked to run the office, where I have been since April 1, 2014.
Joanne, who started as Grace’s Administrative Assistant in April of 2018, is a native Delawarean, raised in Brandywine Hundred. She went to Concord High School and attended St. David’s Episcopal Church after meeting her husband Larry. There she served as Jr. Warden. They were both very active at St. David’s with the craft fair and the youth group. Today they attend Immanuel Highlands Church. Their youngest daughter was married there and their grandchildren also attend Immanuel. Currently she’s a member of the transition team, preparing to say goodbye to their Rector, Kim Capwell and welcome an Interim as they proceed to find a new Rector.
Joanne has been married to her husband Larry for 42 years and they have three married daughters, Sharon, Laura and Jill, who all live in the area. She loves to go to the beach, any beach, but Dewey is where she spends most of her time. She also is an avid sports fan and is passionate about the ups and downs of the Phillies. She is very competitive in the family fantasy football league trying to win the trophy and not take home the looser trophy that has to be displayed during Sunday Dinner.
With five busy grandchildren they spend a lot of time at swim meets, lacrosse games, soccer games and basketball games. Larry and Joanne both enjoy spending time with their friends, most of whom they have known since high school or met through their children playing sports.
She enjoys meeting new people at Grace and also learning new things about the business of church management.
