What is Cornerstone doing in the World Missions front?
This marks our second year of intentional global partnerships using the vision frame we spent the better part of a year working on. Pastor Ron and the whole executive pastoral team have given us tremendous support in taking a long-term approach to partnerships. We have three relationships we have focused all of our resources on.
All three are under well-qualified national leaders connected with a regional strategy. The first being a network of high quality schools tied to a church planting strategy in N. India. The second with Empowering Lives International working in Kenya, Tanzania, DR Congo, and S. Sudan. And the third partnering to bring the gospel to a tribe of some 1.1 million people in S. Asia who have never had the scriptures in their language, with only 2 known believers among them. We are praying for and providing financial assistance to 4 community workers working in this community we are referring to as the Driway People.
How awesome is it to be a strategic part of bringing the message to a tribe who have never heard the name of Jesus? It’s part of the global body of Christ’s commitment, including Wycliffe and The Seed Company, to begin gospel translation efforts in the very last people group by the year 2025. It’s called Finishing the Task, and Cornerstone is at the table praying for and helping to resource this goal to “cross the Great Commission finish line” of getting the gospel to every last nation, which is unique to our generation as the first generation in history who knows who they are and where they are located around the globe.

I realized this brutal truth about five years ago. My husband and I had just relocated…Read More
WE ARE GOING TO RENO?
Several weeks ago the Groups team at Cornerstone was promoting an upcoming event called “Relationship Reno.” They asked me to be one of the speakers at the event. When I saw the promotional pieces for the event I thought, “Wow, field trip to Reno (the city)!” I love traveling and speaking—I am in! After making…Read More
