Is this program for me?

This program would be a great fit for you if you:

-Are a high school graduate (by the time you start Resonate) who is between the ages of 18-26 years old

-Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ

-Are ready and committed to growing deeper in your faith and relationship with God

-Are ready and willing to fully participate in the activities, programs, and relationships which are part of the Resonate program

What will Resonate students do during weekends and holidays?

Weekends activities and responsibilities will vary throughout the term. Students will serve guest groups, which are often at camp over weekends. Resonate may take trips over a weekend. We may be on the road to promote Resonate in churches on Sunday mornings. Sometimes, weekends will be free time. 

Resonate will take a break for Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. Students may stay on campus for Thanksgiving, but are required to leave campus during Christmas break. 

We spend our ‘spring break’ on our international mission trip.

Can I leave?

To get the most out of the Resonate Discipleship Experience we ask that you are present the duration of the program. We will, however, allow each student two weekends to be free to travel home. Also, there will be breaks over Thanksgiving and Easter holidays. Students are welcome to travel home at those points too. In the event a major situation arises, we will certainly do our best to accomodate those circumstances. 

Technology at Resonate

At Resonate we value and prioritize community and relationship. For that reason, as participants of Resonate to significantly limit their use of digital technology, including cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc. We realize that we live in a digital and connected world so we do not ban these items. However, we do consider their use a privilege. If use of technology is abused, or gets in the way of the healthy community environment, privileges will be lost. This is at the discretion of the director. Use of technology (including cell phones) can benefit our lives in many ways. But, like anything else, too much technology is a bad thing. Part of following Jesus is learning what boundaries you need to have in place to follow effectively. The hope is that this policy helps you determine those boundaries. 

Is there cell phone service in the area?

Very limited. Do not count on consistency

Is Wi-Fi available?

Yes Wi-Fi internet access is available and participants will have access during certain times. Wi-Fi internet will also be used during our class sessions and for homework assignments. However, Wi-Fi will be restricted at certain times throughout the week.

Do I need health insurance?

Resonate and Covenant Cedars do not provide health insurance. We do, however, highly encourage students to have health insurance. Due to new insurance laws it is much easier for students to remain on their parents health insurance, or to secure affordable insurance.

Does Resonate provide job opportunities for students?

Not in the classic sense. Students are required to serve at camp when guest groups are present. Their service helps offset the cost of their room and board, keeping the tuition costs significantly lower it would usually cost. 

Are students allowed to work off-site during their time at Resonate?

No. Due to the fluid nature of Resonates’ programming, keeping a regular job is too difficult.

What furniture is provided in the dorms and what should I bring?

Once accepted into the program you will receive a packing list with required and suggested items to bring. Students are each provided a bed, desk, and small wardrobe. Other furniture is provided in common living areas.
