- What We Do
“[God] wants to bring the good news to every people and bring hope and love to everyone,” said Carl, a student in Resonate missionary Stan Kruis’s church-planting class at Asia Theological Seminary in the Philippines.
That’s why Carl and his classmates spent a day at a church plant in a cemetery.
“I just don’t believe that Jesus is God,” said Asad.*
Asad sat in Resonate Global Mission missionary Ray De Lange’s car, looking out the windshield at the church in front of him but not really seeing it. He was lost in thought. After immigrating to Canada from the Middle East, Asad and his wife were curious about Christianity. They began attending church and a class for seekers and new believers that Ray leads.
“I came into ministry in an unconventional fashion. It was God,” said Josh Cook.
Josh is the perfect person to lead Resonate partner Hesed Community Church in Detroit, Michigan.
Sometimes marriage struggles are not evident in daily life. Pastor Israel and his wife, Elizabeth, thought their marriage was healthy—but they weren’t always honest with each other.
They acted differently as a married couple at church than they did at home. Church was a stage where they were polite and respectful. But at home, behind the scenes, they were blunt and would often bicker. Their children noticed.
When Resonate Global Mission missionaries Abe and Elaine Lee invited Israel and Elizabeth to participate in a marriage seminar, the couple opened up.
At first glance, sixth-grader Michael* and first-grader James* seem like an odd pair—but their friendship has taken on a greater purpose.
