Dean and Doris Turner
Dean & Doris Turner have been working as missionaries since 1985, and their primary focus has been in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.
Growing up in the Dallas area, they were married in 1970. In the summer of 1975, Jesus became the Lord of their lives. They have three sons, Gary, Clay, and Matthew. Matthew, the youngest, is still at home.
In 1982, the Lord called the Turners into ministry, specifically for work in Eastern Europe. They began to fulfill this call in March, 1985, when they moved to Germany. This began a series of travels in and out of Romania, and working with a local German church.
In 1991, they moved to Czechoslovakia. In 1994, Dean made his first trip to Siberia, Russia.
From 1995 until 1999, they were in Estonia, and traveled to Russia. Late 1999, they relocated back to the United States.
In 2000, they began ministry in the Ukraine, and in 2002, ministered in Poland and India. From 2005 to 2007, they lived and worked in Russia.
Recent missions include the Czech Republic, India, and the Ukraine. The Turners have a current project working in the Ukraine.
Antlers, OK and Christian Family Fellowship is their home base at the present time.
