December 20, 2019

When something resounds, it can be heard loudly and clearly. At this time of year, it might make you think of the heavenly hosts singing glory to God before an awestruck audience of shepherds. Or perhaps you think of the sound of little ones on Christmas morning who squeal with delight as they discover gifts under the tree. 

The last 12 months of stories have aimed to resound about the mission of Redeemer. The impact of students, alumni and faculty echoes across our communities, churches and culture. As the year (and decade) draws to a close, we invite you to take a few moments to enjoy some of the most important Resound stories from 2019. And while you celebrate his coming this Christmas season, join us in celebrating the amazing work God is doing through Redeemer and its support community.
