Joshua and Christene Moreno served as Youth Pastor for three years and Assistant to the Pastor for one year in Downey, California. They also served as Sectional Sunday School Director and evangelized for a short time before heeding the call to the mission field. In February of 2012, they embarked on their journey as associates in missions to the country of Turkey for two years helping to pioneer an underground work. They also ministered on AIM in Greece for three months teaching in the Bible College, helping in administration, preaching revivals in various churches and witnessing God fill people with the Holy Ghost. The Moreno family received full missionary appointment at General Conference 2014. Along with their two daughters, Esther and Naomi, they are happy to be a part of the Global Missions family. When returning to the field after deputation they plan to work with veteran missionaries Sim and Judy Strickland to help further develop newly started works, plant an international church in Thessaloniki, integrate small Greek works into the UPC of Greece and enhance the Bible College.
