Jervie Windom – commUNITY

In today’s episode, Rick and Sam are joined by Jervie Windom, Pastor of Resonate Church in Galveston County, Texas. Jervie shares his experiences in ministering to individuals and the community. He emphasizes the importance of investing in relationships to build community even when we disagree, facing challenges as opportunities for transformation, and a persistence informed by hope.

Born in Brooklyn, Jervie Lamont Windom honorably served 24 years in the United States Army. Jervie is an alumnus of Southern Wesleyan University, Villanova University, & Viterbo University with over 19 years of ministry experience. Jervie is married to the lovely Nilda Windom, a native of Neptune, New Jersey. Nilda is a United States Army veteran as well with 16 years of honorable service.

After the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, the Windoms returned home to Galveston County, Texas to assist with long term recovery efforts for the people of Greater Houston to provide healing, help, and hope. They formed a partnership between their local church in La Plata, MD, theSent Church  in Plano, TX and The Mountain Plains District of the Wesleyan Church. From this partnership, RESONATE Church emerged.         

RESONATE Church is currently partnering with local and national organizations to rebuild homes, provide jobs, and revitalize communities
