We see RESONATE as a network of diverse missional gatherings welcoming the Holy Spirit into every affair that involves a human heart within our communities.
Our vision is to ensure there is a disciple making presence in every zip code where attendees of RESONATE gather, work, rest, play, and learn.
RESONATE has a weekly Sunday worship gathering where we celebrate Christ in unity. Our services are designed to reach believers and unbelievers, young and old, rich and poor, those weeping and those rejoicing, as we point everyone to the unchanging grace of God and the hope found in Christ.
Additionally, we meet in what we call Discovery Communities in 5 cities throughout Galveston County. We have a threefold strategy of Meeting, Making, and Multiplying.
(1) We Meet our neighbors through engagement opportunities and community outreaches with a focus on building authentic relationships and making disciples.
(2) We then Make disciples as we do life together in missional communities, fresh expressions, and discipleship groups.
(3) Our purpose is then to reproduce or Multiply movement in our communities by equipping disciples to be disciple-makers and emerging pioneering leaders who can start or lead missional communities, fresh expressions, discipleship groups, or worship gatherings.
