- What We Do
In October of 2018, Resonate Global Mission received a copy of a letter that had originally been sent to our partner the Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ). In January 2019, we received an additional letter outlining various allegations of abuse that took place at CAJ between 1963-1987. Four people were named as perpetrators of this physical, emotional and sexual abuse, one of the four was a missionary with Resonate Global Mission (then Christian Reformed World Missions) between 1974-1982.
At February’s Council of Delegates (COD) meetings in Grand Rapids, Mich., Resonate Global Mission presented results from the most extensive research ever conducted on church planting in the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA).
As part of an ongoing denominational conversation about church planting, this research will be significant not only for the CRCNA’s future work in church planting but also for the health of the denomination overall.
Civil unrest and shortages of food, water, and fuel have prompted Resonate missionary families in Haiti to temporarily leave the country.
All Resonate staff and their families in Haiti are safe and have not been directly affected by the unrest. However, anticipated shortages of fuel could force the island nation’s airports to close if the situation deteriorates. Resonate has opted to bring its staff back to North America in accordance with CRCNA security guidelines out of an abundance of caution.
Jon De Bruyn believed in the power of prayer. Now, the Jon De Bruyn Memorial Prayer Fund will help shape the prayer lives of countless others and ignite prayer for God’s mission throughout the world.
Escalating protests and violence throughout Nicaragua have prompted some Resonate Global Mission and World Renew staff to leave the country.
No CRCNA staff members have directly experienced any violence, though all are embroiled in the difficulties that come with the country being in turmoil.
