Jesse and Meranda Beernink, along with their adorable children (Malayna, Mariana, Jezaniah, Xylia, Zayden, Ezekiel and one adult child – Turner), are moving back to Janesville with a deep passion for connecting with people that normally wouldn’t go or be part of the church. Together, their vision (along with Resonate’s) is to raise a gospel-centered, gospel-sent family to connect people to God and to each other through Jesus Christ. They pray as God has called them to reach and demonstrate His love, they may begin a contagious movement in Janesville and beyond.

Jesse and Meranda have been married since 2005 and together, have been in ministry the moment they began life together. Jesse has spent just about 10 years in full-time ministry mainly as a Youth Pastor working with students and families. Over the past five-plus years, Jesse has been blessed serving at Monroe Bible Church in Monroe, WI reaching and showing others what it is to be in a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ. He is looking forward to seeing the work God has in store for him and his family in Janesville.
