Our mission of seeing people caring for people is not bound to our campuses in Ohio. We want to see God's restoration work happen across the globe. For the next few years, we have partnered with four other churches in North America who are committed to the same mission and vision.
In December of 2006, five people, who would later be called Resonate Church, started meeting in a coffee shop in Pullman, WA. For nine months we continued to gather and invite people to what we were calling "The Resonate Sessions." Each week we shared a meal together and opened the Bible to dream about what church could be. We told people, "If what we're talking about 'resonates' with you, please stick around." That gathering grew from five to fifty.
On August 19, 2007, Resonate Church had its first large group public worship gathering. We launched with the mission of reaching college students at Washington State University and the University of Idaho. We now have sites at Washington State University, University of Idaho, Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University, and the University of Oregon, and Western Oregon University. We're grateful for what God has done, but we press on knowing there is still much work to do. Currently there are twenty-one million college students in America, and we are confident God wants us to play our part in reaching them with the rescue of Jesus.
In our first 10 years, God has given us grace and favor beyond our expectation. We have seen students come to Christ and have been able to celebrate over 700 baptisms. In celebration of our 10th year, we are telling the story of Resonate and what God has done in our midst. Follow along here.
Resonate Church exists to connect the Gospel to people, people to community, and community to mission.
Our vision is to become an urgent, multiplying, collegiate church-planting movement planting 21 churches by the year 2021. To read more about what God is doing through Resonate to start this movement, read more about 21x21.
Doxa Church is a church plant several years in the making. By God's grace alone, the staff and community launch team have slowly grown to an incredible size and health. After two years of being trained up at Cornerstone Church in Ames, Iowa, Doxa Church will be sent out by the Salt Network and the North American mission board to Madison, Wisconsin. The church launched Fall 2018 and the church family is alive and active. The first community connection group began meeting Fall 2017 and has been meeting almost every week since. We praise God for all the He has done and will do next!
Our dream is that we would plant a church for the city of Madison, that will love college students and multiply throughout Wisconsin and to the ends of the earth. Through church planting, we want to see people awakened to the gospel and redeemed for the purposes of God. Every 36 months, Doxa will plant churches and Salt Companies in other college towns within the UW System, the Midwest and the world as part of the Salt Network. This movement of the gospel will ride on the backs of college students who meet Jesus through The Salt Company and catch a vision of leveraging their lives for Christ and his church.
ABOUT MULTIPLY CHURCH
At Multiply Church we live for more. When we give our lives to Jesus, we become capable of living for more, for the God who created and saved us directs our steps, which gives purpose and meaning to everything we do. We want to experience that reality more and more as individuals and as a collective body, becoming known as a church that lives for more of God’s presence in our lives. We do this every day by serving our communities, living generously, studying the Bible, and sharing the good news about Jesus.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to invest and invite. We invest in relationshipswith people in order to invite them into relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our vision is to be a church that starts other churches. Within the city of Calgary, it is estimated that 95% of the people do not have a personal relationship with Jesus. We desire to change that number by starting churches that invest in their local communities and invite people to know Jesus. Through the church and its people, God will be made known, and he will draw people to himself, both here in Calgary and around the world.
RED HILL EXISTS TO REACH EDWARDSVILLE-GLEN CARBON WITH THE GOSPEL.
In 2014, God opened the door for Rayden to plant a church in Edwardsville, IL. Along with a small group of friends, Rayden and his family moved to Edwardsville, burdened to share The Gospel with Edwardsville-Glen Carbon (Ed-Glen). The core team formed quickly, including families and individuals from Southwest Missouri and Edwardsville, along with several SIUE students.
God was moving in Ed-Glen long before we showed up on the scene. We aren't looking to bring something new, but rather, something ancient. Jesus is the kind, glorious king of the universe, and we want to introduce our city to Him.
WHY 'RED HILL'?
Red Hill exists to put redemption on display. Our church is named Red Hill because it communicates two central ideas from Scripture: The blood of Jesus Christ on behalf of sinners, and Christ's call for His people to be a "City on a hill".
