Jordan and Annalena Whalen have served with OM Belgium since marrying in February 2019. After both completing the OM Mission Discipleship Training in Eastern Europe, they are now working and being trained in church planting. God has given them a huge heart for those who have never heard about Jesus, they want to see Jesus be made known and worshipped!

Jordan and Annalena are living in community with 9 other people in the town of Steenokkerzeel, Belgium. As a community of Jesus followers they are planting a church, using one of the buildings they live in for Sunday gatherings. There are <0.5% Belgians who know Jesus so they are living out OM's mission statement of: "we want to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached.”

In this church plant, Jordan and Annalena are serving as associate leaders and are being trained by the pastor and his wife to go on and plant further churches.

Working on the front line of this pioneering project, they are spending a lot of time building relationships, sharing Jesus and discipling those seeking Jesus. They have already seen multiple people come from not knowing Jesus at all, to taking steps into personal relationship with Him.

As part of their training to lead new church plants, they are:
- being taught how to set a church vision and core values
- developing a series of discipleship booklets, based on resources from 2 partner churches in the USA, specific for Belgian people, culture and language
- learning how to write and lead a sermon series
- leading core team gatherings, prayer and bible studies
- being taught leadership principles and applying them
- learning how to shepherd a church and point others to God to grow in their personal relationships with Him
- learning how to fundraise and manage ministry budgets
- learning how to manage conflict in a team and work through it or help lead others through it
- helping organise, lead and host outreaches to the community

As long-term workers with Operation Mobilisation, Jordan and Annalena need to raise financial support. They have a huge passion to see vibrant communities of local Jesus followers wherever they are.
