Missionary Spotlight

David and Stacy Bergmark, Sweden


David grew up in Skelleftea, Sweden. He came to the United States for a semester of high school. The dry spiritual climate in Sweden led him to return to the States to grow in grace. He majored in Christian Philosophy at Belhaven College in Jackson, MS.

David was actively involved in RUF at Belhaven and the youth ministry at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson. David went on to receive his seminary education at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson.

While in the U.S., David and several Swedish students began praying consistently for Sweden. It was during this time that David began to sense God’s will for him to be a missionary. His heart is drawn to his home country, where less than 4% of the population attend church.

Stacy was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. After being saved at a young age, she has continually grown in the Lord. Stacy has always been actively involved in the church and started contemplating world missions as a result of numerous short missions trips, as well as a year mission trip to Russia.

David and Stacy were married in May of 1998. They have now returned to Sweden and are involved in leading a church plant there as part of their greater vision to see a new Reformed church movement develop. Their team’s vision includes campus ministry, sports ministry, and a classical Christian school.
