Our Team

Dave and Julie

Founding/Lead Pastors

Thanks for taking time to look at our page! A former school teacher (Julie) and Youth/Young adult Minister in the USA (David): we moved to Scotland over 10 years ago and have enjoyed working with various church-plants, ministries & age groups all over the country. After planting BFC a few years ago, we have fallen in love with Edinburgh. Our two kids Lyla & Tessa know this as their home and its folk have a special place in our hearts! We have always wanted BFC to be a special church with a ‘family feel’ and a BIG heart for people in our community. We would love for you to give us a visit and meet us in person. We don’t care what your past looks like, where your from, how old you are….ALL are welcome and ALL and precious to us. Maybe we can help you begin your journey with God or even help take you further along the way!

Darci

Outreach and Discipleship

Darci leads the Discipleship and Outreach Program at Bridge Family Church. In 2015, I moved to Edinburgh to help Bridge Family Church in any way I could. Although, I had to return to the U.S.A. after a year, I knew I loved Scotland and the work God was doing here. Thankfully ,God brought me back to Edinburgh in February 2019 to work with our wonderful church in a new role! I get to lead discipleship in our church by organizing weekly bible studies as well as our local missions events! I also have the privilege of assisting our worship team and our children’s ministry. I like to make friends wherever I go. People all have such interesting stories, personalities and talents! The more people I talk to, the more I understand how God loves each of them so much. I also enjoy playing music, cuddling with my dog, trying different local coffee shops/bakeries, and eating new foods.
Knowing God has called me to Edinburgh for this time, I am so excited to see God work in this city. He has wonderful plans for Edinburgh and the people at BFC!
