At Cornerstone, our missions projects are multi-generational, including young teens to those over fifty-five. In fact, many trips have as many adults participating as teens. Summer and short-term missions are an opportunity for all members of Cornerstone to experience the body of Christ in a cross-cultural setting. Locations vary by year, but past trips have included Belgorod, Ukraine; the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina; the Menominee Indian Reservation in northern Wisconsin; Fairmont, West Virginia; Ciudad Victoria, Mexico; Hope For the Inner City Mission in Chattanooga, TN; Red Lake Tribe in Red Lake, MN; and Green Bay, WI. Missions projects are open to all Cornerstone members, eighth grade and older.
In addition to varied ages of the participants, Cornerstone mission projects are also unique in that they involve a wide variety of work. Vacation Bible School, concerts, music and children’s worship seminars, self-defense seminars, teen fellowship times, medical work, small group ministry, construction, painting, and home improvement are some of the activities in which past Cornerstone missions teams have participated. Activities are chosen based on the skill of the team members. Have a skill? Consider using it as part of a summer mission project.
