Ginny Whitten has been a Women’s Ministry Coordinator for 18 years and a Women’s Bible Study Leader for 25 years. Through her gifts of hospitality and service she utilizes the openness of her home to help women live fulfilled Christian lives in their marriage, home, and ministry through practical, simple, and honest biblical tools. Ginny is honest and humorous about the truth of real life in ministry. She calls herself a “recovering Martha” in her desire to be with and serve God’s people, accomplishing as much as she can, as long as she can, for His Glory.

Ginny is married to Ken Whitten, senior pastor of Idlewild Baptist in Tampa for 26 years. Ginny’s greatest joy is her family, which includes her 4 adult children and eleven grandchildren--with more on the way! She has a passion to come alongside women in ministry with the encouraging word that “you can do it! If I can, certainly, you can!”
