Original Chalmers Center visual identity elements not produced by Resonate.
Several years ago, I was entering a period of searching for God's will in my life. I felt tugged in different directions. I love being a Pastor and believe I'm called to it, but I also have a huge passion for communications, media, and design. One of the conversations that shaped my present assignment was with Kerry Bural. Kerry went to seminary, but is passionate about church and ministry communications. While I was struggling with the need to be either a Pastor OR a communications guy, Kerry encouraged me to be open to BOTH, and I'm so thankful he did. Just a few months later, I heard from Saddleback Church and I'm now a Pastor who gets to specialize in communications. Kerry is wise and insightful. He gets to work on cool projects. He serves as Principal of the Resonate Group. He's an encourager, a good coach, and a go to specialist in the field of church and ministry communications. You need to know Kerry.
LEAD PASTOR & CHURCH PLANTER / Grace Hills Church
Our organization hired Kerry and his team at The Resonate Group® to revamp our website. They did an amazing job and were in constant communication with us throughout the entire process, which made things so much easier. Our new site is polished, clear, professional, and eye-catching. We were very impressed with their work and their continued support of our site!
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS / Mission Year
When as Bible Publisher at LifeWay I set out to lead a revision of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), Dr. Micah Carter and I engaged Kerry to help us think through the marketing aspects of presenting a refreshed Bible to as broad a readership as possible. Kerry provoked fresh thoughts and led us to answer important questions we had not considered. He provided a perfect starting block for a years-long process that led to the creation of the Christian Standard Bible (CSB). His influence will be felt for years to come as CSB continues to impact the world. Kerry has my highest recommendation.

"Kerry Bural did a great job leading us through a branding process for Aspen Group. As a result of his leadership, we have refreshed our brand and launched an "Inbound Marketing" strategy. We are already experiencing significant impact from both efforts. Our trust in the marketplace is growing along with revenue and backlog. Kerry was comfortable to work with and brought real IP that shifted our thinking. A great guy who brought us great results."

"I have a high level of respect for Kerry and the entire team at Resonate! I hired Kerry to assist me with some critical new messaging and strategy at Generis. He not only fulfilled that objective with excellence, he also helped our leadership team map out an over-arching strategic plan for executing on our vision. Kerry brought a fresh perspective with a helpful balance of creativity and practical guidance around execution. We continue to follow the road map Kerry helped develop for us and enjoy the partnership."

"Kerry is a design, marketing and public relations expert—humble in character, focused on details and perceptive in design. Kerry is articulate, knowledgeable and on time—a leader with class, integrity and unbeatable ethics. I recommend Kerry for any art direction, public relations, coaching or difficult marketing project. Whether online, traditional or integrating the two, Kerry is Class A for the job."

"Kerry is a generous leader. He's one of the sharpest minds in Kingdom-building I know, but Kerry isn't satisfied with simply being brilliant. He wants to give back. He wants to invest in the next generation of leaders. Kerry believes in people and wants to make lives better for all. This is a seasoned, genuine, humble leader. God can use a guy like this! And He is!"

Kerry genuinely cares about helping you to succeed with excellence."

"I've known of Kerry for several years. I now KNOW Kerry as one of our "go to" partners in our business. I've been impressed with Kerry since our first day of consulting with him. He took me and my team to school on "brand equity" and the power of it. Since then, both he and his quality team consistently produce responsive results in several aspects of marketing and branding for our businesses. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Kerry and Resonate® to you. You can thank me later."

They will help you develop a communication strategy and take it all the way to execution. A plan is no good if it never gets implemented.
