Our vision to reach the world contains three primary emphases, first through participation. This includes a high emphasis on personal and relational evangelism with regular times of training and intentional prayer. Our goal is that each Cornerstone attender can identify at least one person with whom they are intentionally demonstrating and sharing Christ’s love.
Our second emphasis is support. We currently have 15 local, regional, and global mission partners on our team, and we support them in a variety of ways financially, relationally, and in prayer.
Our third emphasis is sending. We hope to send regular short term mission teams to various places around the world. These teams partner with our missionaries by encouraging them and engaging in ministry with them. We also pray that God will raise up long-term missionaries from Cornerstone to be sent into our community, region, and the world!
Missionary of the Month
Derek & Kristin Dearth have served with Action International Ministries for 8 years. Recently they worked with HIV/AIDS patients in Zambia and helped local churches welcome them into their congregations and remove the stigma that HIV/AIDS carries. Currently the Dearths are stateside working with the sending office for Action. Their heart is to bring the hope of the Gospel to the marginalized and forgotten around the world with the love of Christ.
In January of 2020 our church sent 14 people for a week in Sumpango, Guatemala where they joined our mission partner, Oscar Chiquitó and his organization Impacting Guatemala Network. The team participated in work projects, helped a local church lead a Bible school for children, and put on a medical clinic. We envision short-term trips being a significant part of our culture and practice. Contact our office for more information about the next trip!
