About the Whitmans

The Whitmans find it their life mission to:

The WhitmansEquip the Italian Church of the Next Generation to Reach the World for Christ.

Ultimately we want people to know the good news that Christ came to pay the penalty for our sins and to give us a dramatically new life in him.

We find that the best way for people to know about this life-changing news is to train people to effectively live this out and communicate it to all the people around them.

 Our method is to do this through local church ministry: evangelizing, discipling, training, planting new churches in Umbria and sending out missionaries.

Currently Jonathan is teaching and preaching in the church, leading the prayer ministry and music and worship ministries.  Melodee and Jonathan are both involved in discipling new believers and  training leaders to take their place.
