The Whittaker Family

Cody Whittaker

Cody was born and raised in Connecticut. He has a passion for learning and teaching God’s Word. He is an evangelist at heart and is always looking for an opportunity to share the Gospel with people. He is also a diehard fly fisherman. He identifies most with the Apostle Peter, who was both a fisherman and a fisher of men. True to this description, Cody is often either sharing with his wife about the great opportunity he had to share the Gospel with someone that day or talking about the huge brown trout that he caught on the river. He loves spending time with his family, being outdoors, and watching hockey games.

His favorite verse is Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…”

Maria was born in Puerto Rico. She is a wife, mom, and friend who loves Jesus and is thankful for His grace and mercy. She enjoys reading, photography, cooking, and creating art. Besides the Bible, her favorite book is Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. She enjoys getting to know people and hearing what they have to say. She has a passion for biblical counseling. And she never gets tired of learning, teaching, and talking about her Savior, Jesus. True to this description, you will often find Maria sitting on the couch with her husband in the evening and talking about something amazing that she learned from the Bible.

Her favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:28-29, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.”

She loves the scripture in Mark 4:41 that says, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” because it reminds her of Jesus’ great power.
