David and Teresa bring their extensive church-planting experience in England to serve as the directors of EQUIP Britain. As part of the CMF England team, they are involved in recruiting short-term workers from the U.S., Europe, ForMission College and the British Churches of Christ to work and train alongside British and ethnic church planters. David and Teresa also lead Global Community Church, which is an international church in Birmingham started by a family from Mizoram, India. This missional community also allows for support and worship for the EQUIP participants.
The Fittros previously planted a successful church in Northampton. They also developed a missional work among young people in the city of Nottingham which included partnerships with police, schools and the local community.
The Fittros are the parents of two children: Nathanael (1993), who serves in England with CMF, and Rachael Gidney (1995; married to Zach in 2018).
Interested in learning more about British words, phrases and other cultural differences from the US? The Fittros have prepared this online booklet, "What did you say?" as an entertaining and helpful look at “two countries separated by a common language.”
