Daniel Bardales

Daniel and Evi Bardales both were raised in Christian homes, having been saved while still young children. As they grew in their faith, they served in several ministries. Daniel served as Director of Operations for Dan Moran Ministries along with Evi before they got married. They both served through translating and coordinating logistics for missionary groups traveling to Honduras from Alabama, US. After they were married, they both studied at Word of Life Argentina for three years, and then Daniel served as Lead Pastor with Iglesia Bautista Renacer (Born Again Baptist Church) in Honduras. God used Daniel and Evi at this church to launch several new ministries, including one called “Honoring Santiago and Damariz (HSD) School” for underprivileged kids in Honduras. This is a Christ-centered, bilingual and high-quality school meeting children’s needs for education. Daniel has also served as Field Director for SCORE International. After seven years in Honduras, God moved the Bardales family to Bible Church of Columbus, IN, where Daniel served as Family Ministries Pastor. Two years later, the Lord called them to move once more – this time to Dallas, TX where Daniel serves as Associate Pastor at Iglesia Biblica Cristo Viene (Bible Church Christ is Coming). Daniel is currently working on his Master’s degree in divinity at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Daniel and Evi have been married for sixteen years and they have four kids: Gerson, Sarah, one that is with the Lord, and Isaac.

We still serve with SCORE and yearly return to the DR to help the GAP Program or to reconnect with the Lily House (an anti-trafficking safehouse where Ashley served). In 2016, we returned to Scranton and helped launch Steamtown Church Español before joining Steamtown staff as Ministry Liaison (serving between services and between languages). Now, I serve as Communications Director at Steamtown.
