He's worked with genocide victims in Bosnia and Rwanda, established a sustainable agricultural project in economically down trodden Zimbabwe, learned Buddhism from the Dalai Lama's personal archivist in the Himalayas, visited the world's largest refugee camps on the borders between Kenya and Somalia and Jordan and Syria, observed Hindu rituals on the banks of the Ganges River and witnessed over two-thousand Asian Christians take a martyr's oath before receiving their college diploma. On five different occasions he has visited places that were later bombed by Islamic extremists. He is currently exclusively focused on the prolonged conflict in Iraq and Syria, and providing immediate assistance to the hundreds of thousands of displaced Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities through the Cradle Fund.

As a public figure, Moore is primarily known as a humanitarian who has been called one of the "world's most influential young leaders" and "a modern day Dietrich Bonheoffer” as a result of his extensive work in the Middle East. The Vicar of Baghdad named him "one of America's foremost spokespersons for international religious freedom.”
