Called to Ministry

I am very thankful for the privilege of growing and learning at Cornerstone. I was able to build strong relationships with my peers but more importantly with my teachers. I was challenged, stretched, and motivated to think, work, and act responsibly while following Christ in my life. It was while I was at CCS that I began to feel the Lord calling me into ministry, and the teachers were faithful to play a role in confirming my calling. I will be forever indebted to my time at Cornerstone.
