I68 is a FREE ministry helping addicts and their families go from detox to discipleship. They are currently working in Brown, Adams and Clermont counties. Their focus is to help others build a relationship with Jesus Christ so He can break the bonds of addiction and reach those who are lost, to give hope where there is despair, and bring joy where there is fear.
The leaders of I68, Dallas and Lynne Barber, are also a part of the Resonance family and serve alongside us each week!
Brown County Christian Academy
The Brown County Christian Academy was founded in 2015 under the leadership of Eric and Melissa Purdy.
The vision of the BCCA is to build students and families into Kingdom-minded Christians who are willing to sacrifice everything for Jesus Christ and accept the cost of following Him. They accomplish this through a first-class Classical Christian curriculum, highly qualified Christian educators, and a spiritually focused, educationally rich environment.
Pregnancy Resource Center of Brown County
The Pregnancy Resource Center is a non-profit Christian organization committed to helping those who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy. They recognize a need to provide Christian compassion and acceptance and to withhold attitudes of judgment and condemnation when serving clients in crisis.

Nathan & Jade Metz: World Gospel Mission
In January of 2013, during a lunch conversation with a friend and pastor to missionaries, the Holy Spirit gripped Nathan Metz’s heart and placed a clear and certain call to the work being done in Uganda. Nathan called Jade as soon as he could. Since that moment Nathan and Jade have continually walked step by step in faith and enjoyed the gentle confirmations God has blessed them with. Shortly after, Nathan and Jade were officially accepted as missionary disciples to Uganda through World Gospel Mission, a 103-year old mission-sending agency.
God doesn’t always speak to us in flashes of light or booms of thunder. Sometimes we have to wait for the noise to subside so that we can hear His voice in a soft whisper. Such is the case in their calling. God spoke to Nathan as he sat across the table from a trusted brother in Christ. As that man shared about the needs of the church in Uganda, God whispered “this is your work, go.”
Resonance has enjoyed the opportunity to partner with Nathan & Jade since just before their first trip to Uganda, and we have become close friends. God is doing amazing things through their family, and we are so excited to be a part of it with them!

A Letter from the Executive Pastor
When I think about all God has done at Resonance, it is overwhelming. A lot of people in the church world will tell you that “it’s not about the numbers.” I agree. It’s not about the numbers. It’s about what those numbers represent.
When you see the number of people in attendance at Resonance, those are adults, students and children who are coming and hearing God’s truth week after week. When you see the number of people who were saved and baptized, that is God’s Kingdom growing. These are lives being changed and families restored. Not by Resonance, but by Jesus Christ himself.
My oldest daughter, who is in third grade, was telling me this week how hard it is to be at school and see other kids doing things that she knows they shouldn’t do. She understands that they often act that way because they just don’t know. They don’t know because no one has told them. Their parents haven’t told them, and it may be because they themselves don’t know either. They just don’t know how much God loves them and wants to set them free because no one has ever told them and they don’t have people in their life who know either.
One of the main reasons my wife and I decided to become a part of what God was doing at Resonance before we launched almost six years ago was because of the people. We looked at who we would be doing life with, and we both agreed that being around this amazing group of people would be a good choice for our family. We surrounded ourselves with some of the most authentic and truth-seeking people I have ever known. And because of that, our lives have changed, we have grown immensely, and our daughters know Jesus and the Holy Spirit in a way that I couldn’t have imagined. They KNOW. God has changed us all because of this family of believers.
So when I see numbers, I see people who KNOW. I see people who were once lost and are now found. I see people who are walking into true and greater freedom than they’ve ever had. I see people who have been profoundly changed by the Spirit of the Living God. And I know this because I’m one of them.
Because of your generosity, we have been able to proclaim this truth, not only within the confines of our community, but around the world. And this is only the beginning. We are completely sold out to the vision God has for Resonance, and we will continue to steward it in a way that honors and lifts up the name of Jesus. We will continue to operate with integrity and generosity each day that we are blessed to carry that responsibility.
Thank you for your trust and support and for being a part of the Resonance Family. You are truly making a difference in the name of Jesus.
