Our Story

In 2015, Resource Global spent a year with frequent visits to Indonesia with the goal of better understanding how to reach this country as it joined the global stage – in both the global economy and the global church. With over 60% of the population without Gospel witness, and an extreme wealth contrasted with devastating poverty, we set out to discover how God could already be moving in this high-stakes country.

What we found surprised us.
We found a small group of young, Christ-following men and women who were primed to be the next business, government and nonprofit leaders in their country. Many of them had left Indonesia to study in the United States and encountered Christ for the first time through local campus ministries and churches. They returned home eager to apply their new and growing faith to their spheres of influence, yet once they returned home, they were often under resourced spiritually and struggled to put their faith into action. In many cases, their faith was fizzling out, or failed to make the impact it was poised to make.

Yet for us, we saw God uncovering a great opportunity.
What if these individuals were discipled, trained, and equipped to continue boldly in their faith – for the good of their work and the good of their cities?

As Gospel truths were contextualized and applied to their unique opportunities, what difference would this make as they followed Jesus in their workplaces? In their cities? In the world?

 
 

So Resource Global began. 

Now, we seek out what God is preparing through young professionals in key cities around the world, and we appoint local teams to walk hand-in-hand with these young professionals to provide contextualized opportunities in training, networking and discipleship to pursue their work in a way that is faithful to Christ and effective for the good of their cities. We believe God is doing a new thing through believers in the workplace, and we believe that young, Christ-following professionals are playing a unique role in cultivating their cultures and economies for maximized Gospel impact.

 

Our work forms us

It’s where we produce and create, rub shoulders with our teammates and grow and feel disappointment.

God created work

But we don’t often see it under the realm of his creation and within his will. We see our 9-5 as merely a means to an income, or even a barrier to doing the true “good work.”

Yet, what if there was a different story that god intended for work?

What if he created work for the good, or the flourishing, of people and culture?

What if he gives us unique skills and places us in positions that can be used for greater impact?

 

Our marketplace skills are our ministry skills

As we begin to see this 60% as a significant space where god can move, there is great potential for Gospel impact in cities all around the world.
 
We’re leaning into this significant space and we’re ready to renew our cities and culture. So we’re cultivating the potential of young professionals all around the world to maximize their reach and restore their cities with the gospel.

 

How We Work

RESOURCE

We resource next generation local leaders through City Cohorts, where they receive one-on-one mentorship and training from internationally-known ministry and marketplace leaders, and rub shoulders with influencers just like them to build community and accountability for the long haul.

RELEASE

We release them as they’re commissioned to apply their skills for the good of others. They emerge from the City Cohort with a greater sense of calling and the tools to put their giftings to work in their communities.

RESTORE

Then, they restore their cities with the Gospel. Twenty years from now, with the collective group of City Cohort graduates, we expect to see cities renewed, issues addressed, and the Gospel proclaimed in cities around the world.
