Bawer (not his real name) moved to Berlin, Germany, alone—but he found community through the church planted by Resonate Global Mission missionaries Mary Buteyn and David Kromminga.
He’s also finding new faith in Christ.
Bawer comes from Kurdistan, Iraq, where many people practice Islam or at least come from a Muslim background. Kurmanji Kurds, of which there are 15 million in the world, are considered “unreached” because very few are followers of Christ.
New York City was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic early on, and Manhattan Vertical Church felt the effects. A Resonate Global Mission COVID-19 relief grant helped keep ministry thriving.
Manhattan Vertical Church launched in partnership with Resonate in the spring of 2019. With worship services and discipleship opportunities in Korean, the church plant has become a home for Koreans in the area, especially young families and college students.
A village in Sierra Leone dismissed the idea of starting a church—not just once, but twice. Today, a church plant is growing and raising up strong leaders.
In Heremakono, a village of about 500 households in Sierra Leone, people come from a Muslim background. Years ago, Catholic believers tried to plant a church, but faith in Christianity didn’t take root because of the people’s strong beliefs in Islam.
“What does it look like to live in the neighborhood God has placed us in?”
Resonate Global Mission recently brought together 54 individuals living throughout the world to explore that question through Joining God in the Neighborhood cohorts.

Many immigrants were hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. A COVID-19 relief grant from Resonate Global Mission helped make it possible for your church plant to provide relief and show the love of Christ to immigrants from a Muslim background in West Michigan.
