About Us

The Whitakers are church planting missionaries sent by the Evangelical Congregational Church to serve in Spain with European Christian Mission International.  Since 2010 we have been collaborating with the “Good News Evangelical Church” (Església Evangèlica Bona Nova) of Onda (Castellón) to establish a visible expression of the body of Christ in the neighboring town of Alcora.

Rachel is also in involved in TCK (Third Culture Kid) ministry with ECMI and beyond, while B.J. is working with the pastors and churches of the province to develop a unified vision to reach the province with the Gospel together.

Partner With Us

There are a few ways you can partner with us:

Prayer: Prayer changes things, and we’ve seen it first hand. We need your prayers and wouldn’t dream of trying to do ministry without faithful prayer support. If you’d like to receive regular updates with current prayer requests, please sign up for our email newsletter.

Encouragement: It may seem trivial, but it’s not. When people drop us a note to ask us how we’re doing, or to say that they’re praying for us, or when people want to make the trip to visit us and see life and ministry firsthand, it is profoundly encouraging and life-giving for us.

Financial Partnership: We could not do our ministry without the numerous people and churches that give regularly to support us. If you are interested in donating to our ministry, whether as a one-time gift or as a monthly contribution, click here to find out how.
