The church at Antioch sends Paul and Barnabas and cares for them when they return. There’s a clear relationship between the church and the sent that I think we’ve lost in the modern world.
Resonate Global Mission
Formed by the joining of Christian Reformed Home Missions and Christian Reformed World Missions, Resonate Global Mission, trains missional leaders, guides new churches, and forges partnerships to proclaim and live out the good news of Jesus Christ worldwide.
Resonate will continue the good work of Home Missions and World Missions. For more than a century, these two agencies have been introducing people to Christ in North America and around the world. That means continuing partnerships with churches in the United States and Canada to plant churches, do campus ministry, train and equip pastors, and develop future leaders. Additionally, it means sending missionaries overseas, proclaiming the Gospel, and forging lasting partnerships.
In addition to this ongoing work, we also are tackling new opportunities for ministry. Here in North America, we are utilizing experience in international ministry to help churches effectively reach across cultural barriers and forge partnerships within new communities of faith. In other nations, we benefit from expertise in church planting and campus ministry to help people in every nation discover God’s plan for their church, community, and life. With your prayers and financial support, as a single agency, we are able to equip all our churches for ministry and join together with what God is already doing around the world.

“I have heard German believers say they believe God has sent this large influx of refugees to Germany in order to bring renewal to the German Church,” said Resonate Global Mission missionary David Kromminga.
How does our love for photography and social media play out when we are serving in mission?
Care packages are a great way to encourage missionaries and send them a bit of home—but they can also present a huge hassle for your missionary.
How do you decide which missionaries are the best fit for your church?
When was the last time we struck up a conversation with a stranger, much less our neighbor? What if every person in our churches initiated conversations on a regular basis? What would we learn about where God is working in the world?
Fundraising doesn’t always have a great reputation. At best, some view it as a means to get to “real” spiritual work. At worst, it’s a “necessary evil.” But what if it's a way to announce vision and invite people into the mission?
