The Rev. Beverly A. Moore-Tasy
The Rev. Beverly A. Moore-Tasy was born and raised in Utica, NY. She was educated in the Utica Public Schools and received her BA in Math from Keuka College in Keuka Park, NY. For 5 years she taught Math in junior and senior high school (with dance and gymnastics as extracurricular activities) for the Baltimore City Public Schools. She earned her Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA and was ordained to the diaconate. Rev. Tasy was named assistant director of Cornell United Religious Work, the chaplain organization at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. While there she was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop O’Kelley Whitaker of the Diocese of Central NY. Since then, she has served parishes in Michigan, Ohio, Nevada, and New Mexico and was director of campus ministry for the Diocese of Western NY and chaplain at SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Fredonia, and Niagara University. She is married and has one son.
Those are the facts, but there is much more to Rev. Tasy. She has served all age groups with her strong pastoral and preaching experience. Her passion for evangelism has had many avenues of expression. She has reached out to college students and staff through chaplaincy programs at Cornell and later three colleges in western NY. She organized multiple types of outreach activities, established the African-American Worship Service in the early 1990’s, mediated campus racial-issue discussions and advised Gospel Choirs.
