CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A local pastor was stunned after finding out thieves stole musical equipment used for their church services, and more.

Resolute Church Lead Pastor Ray Hodges said the church tries to present its messages through digital technology to reach the community.

But now, that method of ministering is gone.

The church just launched in September 2019.

“You know our prayer is that these thieves would have a change of heart," Hodges said. "I mean, we would love for them to just realize what they've taken, especially from the kids, and just drop it off somewhere, you know -- that would be the best-case scenario. That we could just get that stuff back and I would even say 'You know what? Keep all the electronics, keep the music gear, but give us back our children's equipment back."

The break-in happened on Saturday at the Extra Space Storage on Rodd Field Road.

Thieves took TVs, signs, and much more. Yet, Hodges said even though items were taken -- thieves didn't take the ministry's peace.

“I mean, our focus is always been people, so our equipment is just how we do ministry," Hodges said. "It's not the reason why we do ministry, and so our focus is definitely on people.”

Resolute Church is a mobile church, and has its Sunday services at Veterans Memorial High School.
