Meeting Highlights

Discipleship/Lay engagment: 9-12 months

Denn discussed plans for Rob McDowell to work with the staff using Strength Finders Assessments to help devleope a process for leadership development and more lay engagement in the discipleship process.

This year we will be looking at adding more relationship group meetings, expanded discipleship opportunities and support group ie Grief Share, Divorce Care to our Life Group options.


Beyond the Well: 12-36 months

Denn passed out information from World Hope concerning the possibility of entering into a village partnership in Sierra Leone. This would replace our present Water for Christmas project.

The Partnership would span three years and include a well, latrines/ sanitation as well as the possibity of argricultural development or expanding the school. This would depend on the village we were assigned.

The estimated cost of this would be $20,000.00 US per year, Mike broke down how that would be funded.

Denn will meet with major donors from the well project to cast the vision for the holistic village partnership concept.



Sackville Discussion: 18 months -

The team discussed the possibility of launching a Cornerstone Satellite location in the Sackville area in the next 18-24 months.


A motion was made to ask the District Board to enter into a memorandum of understanding concerning the former Crossroads Wesleyan Church property on Windgate Dr. as a possible location.


Please be in prayer as we continue to explore the possibility of this Kingdom expansion.
