- What We Do
Church planting is like hiking up a mountain. Getting people to talk about the beauty of outreach and mission is easy ... but when we finally see how long the path to change is, and how many stairs we'll have to climb to reach our mission, some of us decide we are only willing to go so far before turning back. We pray that all of us in the Christian Reformed Church will be open to tackle whatever mountain God wants us to climb.
"A lot of times in Central America, but also in North America, we think that missionaries are only the people who leave their country and go to another one," said Resonate Global Mission missionary Rachel Beveridge.
"Mission is something we are all called to."
Resonate Global Mission missionaries Rev. Pablo and Sheryl Canché never guessed that an earthquake would rock Mexico City, Mexico—but when it did, they joined the crowds in the streets to help pick up the pieces physically, emotionally, and spiritually. "The earthquake made obvious what we knew all along: that really, truly, Jesus is the answer," said Sheryl. "Through the people with whom we work, we see this everyday."
We reached our match goal! You helped us raise over $50,000 to help equip Christian leaders AND a generous donor matched that amount dollar for dollar! Thank you! One of the leaders you helped is Teopista, a pastor who made an amazing change in her village.
"There are so many needs in our community. We want to be that voice—that shining light on the top of the hill. We're willing to do the work. We're willing to do whatever it takes to glorify the name of Jesus Christ," said José, a member of Iglesia Cristiana Reformada Comunidad de Fe Poinciana in Poinciana, Florida.
"I think this city needs a church like us," said pastor Karlos Palacios. Here's a glimpse of how this Resonate church plant is empowering leaders, meeting needs in the community, and glorifying the name of Jesus Christ.
