This photo was taken a month after Resonate's launch. It's the oldest one I have. I'm 3,000 miles from home, 24 yrs old, with no pastoral experience. I'm on a team with two other guys also miles from home, in their twenties, with no experience.
Everything about our church seemed foolish. Reaching college students is too hard, the North West is too unchurched, fund raising is too unsustainable. Can anything good come from Pullman? Or so they said... 10 years later, from 3-70 staff, from 0-715 baptisms, from 1-7 church's planted, I'm convinced that "Only God" could have done this. We didn't do it. We couldn't do it. But we did say yes. And we will keep saying yes to what seems foolish as long as God allows.
Thank you Resonate Church for letting us be your pastors. Thank you for following us as we follow Jesus. Thank you for believing we're not done yet. And if you support us or pray for us, thank you. The movement is just beginning. Only God knows what's next, and it's our joy to yes to the unknown, because only God is worth following into the wild.
