19 Nov Chris and Brenda Moore Join Global Ministries Family
Chris and Brenda Moore have joined the Global Ministries family as endorsed staff. They serve with Here’s Hope Ministries, which operates in Belize.
Chris and Brenda have been involved with Here’s Hope Ministries since the late 1990s–leading work teams, organizing collection efforts, maintaining communications, and serving on the board of directors.
Beginning in January 2013, Chris will assume the duties of social communication and work team coordination and training. Among other things, Chris will be responsible for planning and leading cross-cultural ministry opportunities with local congregations.
Both Chris and Brenda have a long history with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. During the early 1980s, Brenda lived in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where her parents, Robert and Darlene Eberly, were United Brethren missionaries. Chris graduated from Huntington University in 1993 with a degree in Educational Ministries, and Brenda graduated from HU in 1987 with a degree in math. They were married in 1990, and have one child.
After graduating from college, Chris served in several capacities at Emmanuel Community Church in Fort Wayne, Ind., between 1993 and 2008, with a two-year stint (2000-2002) as senior pastor of Good Shepherd UB church in Huntington, Ind. Back at Emmanuel, he co-led global ministries for ECC from 2003-2008.
In 2009, Chris became pastor of Mt. Zion UB church outside of Decatur, Ind. He was ordained as a United Brethren elder in 2011.
Chris, Brenda, and daughter Rachel have traveled numerous times to Belize, Central America, where they regularly contribute to the ministry of Hosanna House, a home for orphaned, abandoned, and abused children.
Though they will travel frequently, the Moores will maintain their residence in Roanoke, Ind., and participate regularly in the fellowship of College Park UB church in Huntington.
