Speaker & Worship: Amy Moreno & Alyssa Pratt
Speaker: Amy Moreno
Amy Moreno loves her family a whole lot and enjoys spending time with her husband and high school sweetheart of 27 years, Gus, four grown daughters, two sons-in-law, and two adorable grandsons. In 2008, Amy graduated from Messiah College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministry and a concentration in Youth Ministry. In 2015, she earned her Master of Arts Degree, also from Messiah College, in Youth & Young Adult Ministries. She has been serving the congregation of Bethany Evangelical Church for 14 years in a variety of roles, but she currently serves as the Associate Pastor and oversees children’s ministry, women’s ministry, and missions on a part-time basis. After adopting her now 24-year-old daughter Brittany in 2012, God awakened a passion in Amy for children and youth who are currently in or at risk of entering the foster care system. Amy desires to be used by God to make a difference in the lives of those around her.
Worship: Alyssa Pratt
Alyssa Pratt, Amy Moreno’s daughter, is a 24-year-old lover of Jesus, coffee, HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” all things Disney, kayaking with her husband, and spoiling her adorable chocolate lab puppy named Duke. Alyssa graduated from Messiah College in 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministries, concentration in Youth Ministry, and a minor in Children & Youth Services. She has been the Pastor of Youth, Young Adults, & Worship at Bethany Evangelical Church for almost 2 years now and absolutely loves the work God has called her to. In addition to working with young people in the church, Alyssa worked for 6 months as an Adoption Specialist at The Bair Foundation, and most recently, she started working with preschoolers as a teacher at The Joy Center of Christ Community Church in Camp Hill.
