- What We Do
Resonate Global Mission missionary Diana Boot should have been wrapping up a whirlwind cycle of Educational Care training with educators in Uganda and Kenya—but in late March, COVID-19 hit: schools closed and teachers weren’t able to meet for training.
After consulting with doctors and Resonate leaders, Diana thought it wise to return to Canada. She took one of the last flights out of the country before borders closed and has been continuing ministry as an encouraging mentor from her home in Ontario.
We work better when we learn from one another. Because of connections you’re helping to form through Resonate Global Mission, missionaries across borders helped make it possible to launch a fruitful financial stewardship program in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Even though life has slowed down for many people, COVID-19 has robbed peace. Many people are stressed, anxious, lonely, and uncertain.
“I think right now is such a chaotic time,” said Ashley Bonnes, who co-pastors Lafayette CRC in Indiana with her husband, Mark.
Resonate Global Mission is championing a new priority for the Christian Reformed Church in North America’s ministry plan for the next five years: church planting.
Resonate, the mission agency of the CRCNA, is equipped and ready to strengthen church planting within the denomination—but ministry leaders note that it will take the entire denomination to make prioritizing church planting a reality.
In late March, Bridge Church—a CRC church plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta—submitted an application to Resonate Global Mission requesting $3,000 to host a drive-in Easter worship service in their community.
“This is a HUGE opportunity to reach people in the COVID-19 crisis,” wrote Pastor Ryan Pedde.
