Daniel, Joy, and Lydia* didn’t know Jesus before moving to the United States. All three of them lived in a country where the government keeps a close eye on religious activities. As a result, many Christians have renounced their faith or keep it underground. Daniel, Joy, and Lydia didn’t have many opportunities to hear the gospel.
An increasing number of diverse, locally rooted, and globally connected congregations and ministries bearing faithful witness to Christ’s reign and actively making disciples who live in the way of Jesus.
When the coronavirus pandemic forced many churches throughout the world to take worship gatherings online, Bridge Church—a new CRC church plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta—didn’t have the equipment.
Pastor Ryan Pedde and his team bought the equipment they needed to keep their church connected, but they were unsure how they were going to pay for it.
Then Pedde and his team got an email from Resonate Global Mission offering grants for technology support for church plants throughout Canada and the United States
The Coronavirus Wasn’t in the Budget
Marlette and Veronica are sisters-in-law. They live right down the road from each other, but they never got along—not until Resonate missionary Elaine Lee invited them to a Coffee Break Bible study. Digging deeper into God's Word changed their lives!

You helped make it possible for Yogesh to place his trust in Jesus.
Growing up in India, Yogesh was raised in a family that practiced Hinduism. Many of his neighbors were also Hindu, but he had friends who lived a short walk away, and they were Christians. Yogesh spent a lot of time with them and went to church with them sometimes. He started to wonder if Jesus was real, but then he moved to the United States.
Johnny was addicted to drugs and struggled to have hope for his life—but then he encountered F Street Neighborhood Church, a church plant in Nebraska that you help to support through Resonate. Now Johnny helps lead others to Jesus.
Four years ago Johnny stepped into a treatment and rehabilitation facility in Lincoln, Neb., to receive treatment for his meth addiction. It was his fourth time—and not his last.
God calls believers to live together in unity, but sometimes conflict causes pain and drives communities apart. Healing and reconciliation will take decades of hard work—but for some believers, the path to healing starts with just a few days at a Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations workshop facilitated by Resonate Global Mission missionary George de Vuyst.
From an early age, Alyona was sexually assaulted by her father. Her life became defined by those experiences, leading her down unhealthy paths and into broken relationships with other men. Eventually, Alyona found Christ—but her belief didn’t erase the painful memories from the past.
“Unhealed wounds become a barrier for us,” said Resonate Global Mission missionary George de Vuyst, who serves in Ukraine.
Carrie Rodgers didn’t think she had the skills to plant Alive in Grandville, a Resonate Global Mission church plant, and Allix Hutchison wasn’t sure how to step up and serve—but God equipped both of them to be leaders that the new church plant needs.
