Resurgence and House of Prayer Edmonton present
Resonate 2017: 30 Hours of Non-Stop Worship + Teaching
(Form the foundation of the Edmonton Burn)
Come glorify Jesus with believers from across the capital region, and allow the spirit of praise to be made functional within the context of teaching. Resonate 2017 will consist of 30 hours of continual, corporate worship of Jesus Christ, coupled with intermittent teaching sessions. The worship never stops! Teaching sessions will be held in a separate room within the backdrop of non-stop worship, and will focus on equipping the saints for a lifestyle of worship. People are invited to come and go at any time, and stay for as long as they wish!
The vision and heart of Resonate is expressed by the apostle Paul when he prayed: “May God give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:5-6
Resonate is a Christian, cross-denominational event, made up of a diverse expression of believers from throughout the capital region. Various local worship teams will lead 90 minute sets throughout the event, and teaching sessions will be hosted by House of Prayer Edmonton, Resurgence Initiatives, and guests.

Resonate begins Friday, October 27, 2017 at 5:00 pm and will continue for 30 straight hours until Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 11:00 pm. Teaching Sessions will be held intermittently throughout the 30 hours, focusing on prayer, worship, evangelism and revival.

WHERE will it be?
The location will be at McKernan Baptist Church @ 11103-76 Ave NW, Edmonton.
WHY is it happening?
The primary reason is simply because Jesus is worthy of unceasing worship!
God is moving in this generation to establish a global worship and prayer movement. In nations all around the world, God is awakening different expressions of continual, day and night worship and prayer that seek to glorify God on earth as He is worshiped in heaven. Jesus told us to pray for the kingdom of God to be “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10), and in heaven there is an unceasing expression of worship and adoration of God (Rev. 5:8). Come stand for our city and nation together as the Body of Christ, celebrating Christ in unison with heaven.
WHY the change from the BURN to Resonate?
After 4 years of hosting the Edmonton Burn, bringing together over 30 different Worship leaders from churches all over the capital region, we sensed God’s call for something new. God has been leading us to include a teaching portion alongside continual worship to resonate with the heart of what God is doing in our nation – equipping the saints to live a life of continual worship. Worship is more than singing praise: it is a lifestyle and everyday connection with the Father. Singing praise to our Father sets the stage for powerful ministry to be done. We believe that Resonate will have a significant impact on the spiritual atmosphere in our city as we come together to equip the saints and exalt Jesus!
WHO is invited?
As a powerful expression of unity within the Body of Christ, we are inviting believers from all across the capital region to this special, multi-denominational event. Come express your passion for our savior, and create an atmosphere where God can tangibly move among us. Please attend as many hours of worship and as many teaching sessions as you’re able!
Pastors, Leaders…we need your help! We encourage you to invite your entire congregation to be part of Resonate. We have posters, postcards and would love to come and make an announcement on a Sunday at your church! We are calling together churches from across the Capital Region of every denomination. Join us!
