Jeremy Moodey

Jeremy Moodey

Jeremy has had a varied career over 30 years. After serving as a British diplomat in Pakistan and Rome, he moved to the City, where he spent 15 years as an investment banker.

After an attempt to become an MP ended in farce (an experience he wrote about in the national press), Jeremy embarked on his third career, as Chief Executive of the 161-year old charity BibleLands.

In 2012 the charity was re-launched with its new name, Embrace the Middle East. Jeremy is passionate about justice in the Middle East, and supporting the witness of historic Christian communities in the region, and he writes and speaks regularly on these issues.

Jeremy’s church background is as eclectic as his career. Brought up as a Roman Catholic (his grandmother was a nun), he has variously attended both Anglican and Baptist churches, but currently worships at an evangelical Anglican church in Buckinghamshire.

His outside interests are also diverse and include football refereeing, cycling and 1970s progressive rock. He has three grown-up children.
