Brenton & Debbie Driscoll


Meet the Driscolls, IM Missionaries to Bulgaria

Brenton and Debbie Driscoll were approved to be missionary interns to Bulgaria shortly before they got married in 2019. They arrived in Shumen, Bulgaria less than a month before the birth of their son, James (2020). The couple is currently awaiting the arrival of their second child. The Driscolls are presently serving at the New Life church in Shumen.

Why Bulgaria?

We were both blessed to grow up in an intercultural setting and in families that were very much involved in missions. Brenton was born and raised in Japan, and Debbie was born and raised in Bulgaria. Long before we met each other, we felt the Lord’s call to serve Him cross-culturally, wherever that might be.

After we met, we started praying for our future together and for the place where the LORD was going to send us to serve. It did not take too long for us to know that He was leading us to go to Bulgaria, so we said “Yes, Lord!” and ventured on the journey to Bulgaria.

God was faithful and brought us to Shumen less than a month before the birth of our first child, and He has been faithful to this very day. We are humbled to be serving in a country where less than 2% of the whole population truly know Jesus, and we are fervently praying that our Lord will make His name known here, in Shumen, and in all of Bulgaria, as it is in heaven.
