EBC is governed by and accountable to local churches through our Board of Directors which is made up of leaders of evangelical churches and we’re delighted to welcome Pastor David Childs as a new member of the Board.
David grew up in the South East of England in a Christian home. In his early twenties God led him to Africa with African Inland Mission as a Mechanical Engineer to help with the maintenance on a mission station in Central African Republic.
This marked a turning point in the direction his life would now take.
On his return he headed to Bible College followed by 10 years pastoral ministry in Southampton. After a short spell pastoring in the North East of England David arrived in Scotland in 2011 to pastor Strathaven Evangelical Church.
Throughout David’s ministry he has maintained his heart for mission. Never one to be content with theory, he has been working with some church leaders in Angola to establish a leadership training program.
David met Diane, from Northern Ireland, at Bible College and they have two sons, Joel and Matthew, and more recently two daughters in law, and 3 grandchildren.
David has a passion for, and a track record in, discipling, mentoring and training and we are sure he will prove a great asset to the College.
