Dave Bliss

Mission Mobilization

Bio

Dave Bliss has served as the director of mission mobilization for the EFCA’s North Central District since 2024. He was blessed to grow up in a Christian family and to know Jesus from a young age. Dave grew in his walk with the Lord thanks to the guidance of many believers; many of whom were from his home church, Hope EFC in Oakdale. It became clear to him as a teenager that he was called to professional overseas ministry. He holds a degree in International Ministry from Moody Bible Institute and is licensed with the EFCA. From 2006-2010 he served with ReachGlobal in Poland and went on to open, serve, and lead the ministry in Bulgaria until 2024 when he was obedient to God’s call to use his experience abroad to help churches in the NCD to mobilize missionaries. He also served on the Europe Division Leadership team from 2019-2024. He has been married to Sasha since 2001 and they have three daughters. He is multilingual, an avid reader, walks about 5 miles a day and is a two-time world champion board-gamer. He is grateful to serve alongside our district team as we serve pastors, church leaders, and churches.
