The Whiteman Family

Serving in United States

Kriss and Geoff grew up in Christian homes committed to missions. Not surprisingly, missionary service was in their hearts before the ABC's were on their lips. This calling was confirmed time and again, though many cross-cultural encounters. They met and married while working at a ministry with at-risk youth in 2003. Later that year, they discovered a spiritual home in the Orthodox Church. In God's providence, they spent 3 years working for OCMC: Geoff in the missionary department and Kriss in the Communication Department. This time impressed upon them the great opportunity for Orthodox missions and the equally great needs for Orthodox missionaries who are well trained and cared for. In 2010, they left OCMC to pursue master's degrees, Kriss in intercultural studies and Geoff in marriage and family therapy. After graduating in 2014, they began advanced research degrees (ThM) in Missiology. Kriss & Geoff see this as the preparation for a lifetime of mission service as a family. Passionate about God's mission in the world, they are committed to mission mobilization, training, and care. Their heart is for those who share in the advancement of the gospel, to be renewed and strengthened in their most important relationships, and develop resiliency that would be the fruit and the fuel for the spread of God's Kingdom.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
