The Founder

Deep thinker, relentless Biblical researcher, theological pioneer, and passionate lover of God, Katie Moon is a writer and teacher of all things Christ and Him crucified. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design and then working as a professional illustrator, God providentially brought Katie to enter seminary. After four and a half years of seminary study, she was invited to teach a small Bible class. By the grace of God, the content of her first original study was wildly profound and life-transforming. Knowing the content wasn’t just for a few, Katie began the process of transforming it into Bible Study curriculum for anyone to use. Her forthcoming curriculum, called Walking in the Light, is still in process of being researched and written, but the profound message within it trickles into everything God is leading her to develop in the interim. Until the curriculum is released, you can keep up to date with its progress, read her weekly devotionals, and hear her teach what is becoming the precursor to Walking in the Light: her developing series called Prepare the Way, which she is periodically publishing on the blog.

Katie is married to Garrett, a fellow-designer, entrepreneur, and CEO, and together they live the wild adventure of parenting three boys, Judah (9), Finnley (7), and Benton (4). The Moon family lives and works from Bismarck, ND.



The Purpose
The work of Jesus Christ in becoming like us, taking our sin upon Him, dying a substitutionary cross-death for us, being buried, raised, and permanently ascended to the right hand of the Father has significance for both the unbeliever and believer alike. We believe this significance reaches far beyond “going to heaven when you die” and living a “morally good life”. In Black and Light exists to expose the magnificent significance of Jesus’ cross-work for the justification of the unbeliever and for the present tense (as well as future) salvation of the believer. This ministry exists to communicate the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ for all people (2 Cor. 4:6).

The Vision
The significance of this good news of the cross-work of Christ has been largely lost not only to the non-christian world, but even to today’s Church. It is our burden, passion, and vision to not only see multitudes justified by faith, but to see the entire global Church wake from her sleep and walk in the light as she has been given to do (Eph. 5:14, John 11:9-10, 1 John 1:7)!

The Teaching Ministry
We believe that the Lord has called on and gifted us to produce and share curriculum and various learning tools that expose from the Scriptures the truth of who the justified person has become in the sent, dead, buried, resurrected, and glorified Firstborn Son of God. We believe that we are gifted and called to accomplish this purpose through written and verbal teaching. Our focus will be on the development of Bible Study curriculum for individual and group use.
