Whiteds For France
...how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And
how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how
can they hear about Him unless someone tells them? And
how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring the good
Jon and Kelly have been involved with missions since 2010 and have
lead missions teams all over the world. With their previous experience as missions directors and worship pastors they are excited to apply their passion for Jesus to building the local church long-term in France. By
partnering with Hillsong Lyon, their heart is to see the people of
France reconciled back to Father God through worship, creative arts,
serving the church, and relational discipleship.
Jon & Kelly's goals for the first year
of living in France will be to learn French in language school and acclimate their family to the new culture while developing relationships. They will be serving primarily at Hillsong
Lyon and also be connected to other churches/ministries in the region. Their focus is to follow God's lead in helping revival take place in France through worship and relational discipleship. They will be involved in outreaches, homeless ministry, small groups, young adult ministry and, of course, worship ministry. Their desire is to release God's goodness and freedom to every person they encounter in France.
He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask
the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest
Nice Things People Say About Us
"Jon and Kelly are the real deal. Their integrity has shown through the years I've known them and they don't shy away from the hard stuff. They have endurance and a spirit of excellence in everything they put their hands to. Through their gifts and anointing in worship they have partnered with God in facilitating an atmosphere where He can move the hearts of man back to Him. Lets help them take that same spirit of worship and the gospel into France."
Pastor Alex Clattenburg, Lead Pastor at Church In The Son of
"You don’t have to talk to Jon and Kelly Whited very long to learn that they are passionate about their relationship with Jesus Christ and committed to live for Him and serve Him. In a time when many young adults are far from God and pursuing their own purpose, it’s refreshing to know a young couple whose love for God is genuine, leading them to leave what is known to face the unknown for the sake of ministry. How pleased our Heavenly Father must be with them!Jon served as our Worship Pastor for two years at Crossings Community Church and Kelly sang on the team. Jon always brought his “A Game” and led the church to experience the presence of God through worship. God has called them to ministry in France. Because they are called, because they have a huge heart to serve God and reach the lost, and because they are committed and hard workers, they will make an impact in France! Crossings Community Church is honored to partner with the Whited’s and we encourage others to join us by supporting them as well."
