Kriss Whiteman 

Missionary training specialist 

 

Kriss_Whiteman

Kriss grew up in a Christian home committed to missions. Not surprisingly, missionary service was in her heart before the ABC's were on her lips. This calling was confirmed time and again, though many cross-cultural encounters. Kriss met and married her husband Geoff 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 in Missiology. Kriss is currently finishing up her PhD in Intercultural Studies with a dissertation on Missionary Resilience.  Passionate about God's mission in the world, Kriss is committed to mission mobilization, training, and care.
