I met Donnie in the mid 80’s while serving as Youth Pastor at Faith Assembly in Sacramento. Donnie and the Team did so much for the young folks of our church and city.
We stayed in touch from that day to now.
When I took a position at Century Assrmbly in Lodi we often found our way to UOP to join the College students who gathered to Worship and hear the Word at the Cai Alpha meetings there.
Donnie never seemed to forget anyone and showed genuine interest in what was happening in our lives.
From time to time my wife and I would get his attention at A’s games and he would come over with that huge smile to spend a few minutes and even ask us to pray for the Team (A’s).
We last spoke to Donnie at Applebees in Lodi and he again wanted to know what we were doing and encouraged us to check out a number of ministry opportunities he knew were available. We had a great time as always talking and catching up.
We look forward to catching up with Donnie again, next time in Heaven.
Comfort, Strength and Peace thst passes all understanding to Donnie’s wife, Cindy, his children Brooke, Anna, DJ, to the Radical Reality Team and former members, Sean Smith, Darwin Benjamin, and all who were close to this wonderful, loving man and warrior of God
Donnie helped me so much. I was going through a very depressing time and I could remember Donnie saying “your pain is no more, your a new person” all of a sudden I felt a Giant relief lifted off my shoulders. I stayed on my knees at that alter till 2 in the morning & I will forever rememver that moment. I litterally cry when I see camp videos lots of love.
I wish you the best and am sorry for your lost. Donnie was a legacy and will always be loved and remembered as a mighty man of God❤

MY HEART MOURNS WITH YOURS MS. CINDY YOUR HUSBAND AND DAD WAS A FATHER FIGURE IN MY LIFE AND HIS HUGS YOU CAN FEEL THE REALNESS AND THE SPIRIT COME OUT HIS HEART…❤MAY GOD GIVE YOU PEACE AND MEET ALL YOUR NEEDS IN THIS TIME ❤
My first memory of Donnie was when he and the Radical Reality team came to Green Valley when I was like 6. He had done an alter call and around that time my mom developed epilepsy. I remember standing by my dad, watching him pray over people, laying hands in his way, and I didn’t know about being slain in the Spirit and didn’t register that other people were being laid out. I saw him lay hands on my mom and she was slain, I freaked because I thought he caused my mom to have a seizure. Later my parents talked to me about it and now it’s one of my fond memories which we still laugh about. I have been going to RR Camp since 2002, been a camper, counselor, and on program team. One of my favorite things about Donnie beyond his huge heart was his sense of humor. I was on the team that started ‘Donnie Freaking Moore’ and I’ve always loved how he received it and how he joined in in celebrating and dancing with the students. It was at camp that I received my spiritual tongues, my calling, and built many many friendships not to mention felt the movement of the Holy Spirit, witnessed miracles, and experienced God’s love on a very real level. Donnie’s heart for young people and perseverance has left an enormous impact on my life. I don’t know where I’d be without his influence in my life. Last year at camp, he sat with me and encouraged me through the hard year I was going through. He has been like a father figure in my life and I’m so grateful for his life.
To friends and family:
I can’t imagine what you, the Moore family, are going through. I’m sure you have heard this from thousands of people across the country, but my heart and prayers go out to you. Not only has Donnie been and influence in my life but so has your family. I’m grateful for your hearts and your lives. I will continue to pray for your family and friends through this difficult time. I love you guys and am praying comfort and peace over you. Heaven has receive a fantastic person and it is through Christ we will meet again.
Donnie. My life was changed at your altars. What you believed in, preached, and taught was unlike anything I had ever heard.
You were at the foundation (aside from Jesus) for my walk and fire for Christ. I just can’t fathom not raising my kids in your camps that saved me.
I’ll never forget being a teenager and you calling me out at an altar saying “God has healed you of your depression, you don’t need to take medication for the rest of your life.” Ten years later I haven’t taken them.
I love you Donnie freakin Moore. I remember you teaching on the Holy Spirit, I was fifteen years old and literally sitting on the edge of my seat with my leg shaking with anxiousness because I wanted what this power was that you spoke of. I couldn’t believe there was such a thing that would link my heart directly to God. I couldn’t believe we had access to it!!! You didn’t even finish the invitation to come down to the altar and I was running up there. I forgave my dad. Forgave my bullies. Forgave my family, everyone. I’ll never forget when your giant hands (that were bigger than my head) prayed for me to be filled with the Holy Spirit and next thing I knew I was on the ground for the next three hours praying in other tongues. The love, joy, peace, and freedom that came over me is what changed my life. I got up from that altar a different person. I went out and brought 20 kids to youth every single week because you believed in me. I brought my best friends back to camp the next year and they got saved. I sent my niece when she was the same age as I was when my life was first changed. I made lifelong friendships that have carried me through my darkest days at YOUR camps. You possessed the love of the father unlike any other to so many people. Donnie; the impact you had on my life is nothing compared to the thousands of others who knew you, but it’s everything to me. I’ll miss you so much.
