Cornerstone Missions aims to
bless the communities and build
into the nations

Cornerstone Community Church has been involved in missions since her beginning. In fact, the very first thing God spoke to our Senior Pastor Yang when he planted the church that Cornerstone was to be a “missions-sending church”. Missions has always been in the core of our DNA as a church.

In the early years, the church’s involvement in missions primarily revolved around sending short-term mission teams. Within a few short years, Cornerstone began planting and adopting churches in several nations, and sending missionaries out on longer-term assignments as well.

As Pastor Yang has said many times, “The day is going to come when the strength of the church is not measured by how many people are in service on a Sunday, but by how many people are serving on the fields on a Sunday.” Cornerstone has seen this unfolding through the years, and we believe ever more of our people will be serving in the days, months and years to come!

Short & Long Term Missions

Cornerstone Couriers” is Cornerstone’s annual short-term missions focus in the nations. The name is derived from the metaphor of “faithfully delivering” the Gospel to a foreign land. Missions received a renewed vigour in Cornerstone with the launch of our Couriers programme in 2010. That year, almost 300 of our members went on short-term mission trips, and we have since made this programme an anchor in Cornerstone’s calendar.

Our Couriers programme’s vision is the first step to what we believe missions to be — to “bless & be blessed”. This programme is open to all, from new believers to mature sons and daughters.

Our “Builders” programme is a new platform that we introduced to bridge the gap between Couriers and Apprentice. It is a short term mission trip programme (4 days to 2 weeks depending on the nature of the trip), where mature Spirit-filled believers make a two-year commitment to go back to a nation to build & empower the local churches.

The vision for our Builders programme is to “build in the nations“, taking a step deeper from blessing the nations.

The Apprentice programme (previously known as “Cornerstone Overseas Volunteer Programme”, COVP) is our medium term missions programme for mature church members to be sent out to serve in the nations for a period of three months to a year. This programme focuses on strengthening our global CGN churches and partners while engaging God’s missions call in the individual.

Through this programme, participants will experience what it feels like to serve full time on-the-field and help with the work needed on the ground. As the end-time harvest draws near, we need all hands on deck and encourage members with a missions call to join us in this programme.
