Lupita and Jonathan Morton
Jonathan Morton, from the United Kingdom, joined One Mission Society in December 1994. After studying language for one year in Costa Rica, he was assigned to Mexico. It was during his first two years of ministry in Mexico that he met Lupita. In July 1997, they were married.
Jonathan and Lupita started the OMS Mexico social outreach evangelism and church planting program. This is a ministry that uses social outreach tools, such as medical work, drug rehabilitation and breakfast clubs as a way to meet people at their point of need, build friendships and share Christ with them. As a result of the social outreach evangelism, different churches in Mexico have experienced growth while new churches have been established and planted.
Since 1999, the Mortons’ main ministry focus has been planting new churches. Through different evangelism methods, people are won to Christ, new churches are established and local Mexican leaders are trained to effectively reach their own nation for Christ. Jonathan and Lupita were not only involved in directly planting churches, but from 1999 to 2006, they also were responsible for the overall leadership of church planting in Mexico through Every Community for Christ (ECC) ministries. Jonathan served as the field director for Mexico from 2006 to 2008.
On August 13, 2008, God called Jonathan and Lupita to serve at the OMS World Headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana. Jonathan serves as the director of International Ministries, responsible for OMS vision, ministries and staff in Latin America and Europe. Lupita serves through pastoral and ministerial visits throughout these regions.
