About Me: 

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.

But Is It Safe?

It’s natural for missionaries, sending organizations, and supporters to think about safety. The question of safety is answered differently by each of us, and in the midst of diverse responses to the current crisis, it’s clear that God makes people differently.
