Tim and Kathy Whatley have served with Ethnos Canada since 1995. Tim is currently the Co-Director of Ethnos Canada.
Tim was born in Nova Scotia and raised in the jungles of Indonesia as a son of a missionary family. Kathy was raised on a farm in Southern Ontario, and during Elementary School her parents responded to a call to serve in a full-time ministry in an Evangelism Camp in New York State.
Tim and Kathy served as church planters in the Moi people group in Asia-Pacific, being part of the team to first make contact with them in 2000. Today there is a thriving church among the Moi people, and Tim uses his experience and passion to challenge the North American church to take an active role in global missions. Tim was on the Asia-Pacific field leadership for 7 years, and in 2010 they were asked to return to Canada to serve as the director of Ethnos Canada’s senior leadership team.
Tim and Kathy currently live on Prince Edward Island but spent about half the year travelling for Ethnos Canada, including 3 months a year in Asia-Pacific, helping our new team serving in the Arctic of Canada, and his ongoing responsibilities as a co-director.
