German Andres Moreno, Associate/Family Pastor
Pr. German A. Moreno or better known as Pastor Andrew, has the interesting priviledge to say... "Am from the international world", Both his parents are from the country of Chile, he was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, small part of his years brought up in Jamaica, and the rest in the sunny state of Florida.  Married for the last seven years to his beautiful wife, from Cuban heritage, Tiffany.  They both have two active and amazing children Josiah (4), and Gianna (3).

His last 17 years of ministry has been in the area of youth.  Working as a youth pastor, youth director, school chaplain and bible teacher.  He now works at Apopka as the family pastor taking the responsible of connecting families with God, each other, others and church.  His passion is to see this type of connection to exist in every facet of the church life. He also believes that in order for this to exist we must allow "Christ to increase and the self decrease".

He really enjoys to stay active wether it be through running, swimming, cycling, playing soccer, hiking, backpacking, or playing together with his family.  He enjoys traveling and whenever there is some down time reading a good book.

Church History
The Apopka SDA Church was organized on January 7, 1956 with 57 members. The church was moved a couple times before building a facility on South Highland Avenue in the early 1960's. The church grew to 850 members and needed a new expanded facility. Phase 1 which include a social hall, offices, and classroom facilities was constructed. Phase two will include a sanctuary and additional classrooms. On Sabbath, April 5 2003, the church first worshiped in their current facility on Votaw Road.
