Allen Rice Moore was born and reared within five miles of Old Cane Ridge at North Middletown, Bourbon County, Kentucky, August 31, 1865. His grandfather came into the Disciple Movement under "Raccoon" John Smith. Allen became a Christian at the age of ten years, Moses E. Lard taking his confession and John S. Sweeney baptizing him. At the age of eighteen, he graduated at Kentucky Classical and Business College, under the presidency of E. V. Zollars, taking the A.B. degree and delivering the Greek oration on Commencement day. At the age 20 he graduated in the Classical Department of the College of the Bible, which was at that time under the administration of that famous triumvirate, John W. McGarvey, Robert Graham and I. B. Grubbs.
Among the pastorates he has held are churches in Richmond, Virginia, St. Paul, Minnesota, Memphis, Tennessee, Lancaster, Kentucky, Birmingham, Alabama, and Savannah, Georgia.
