Missions

PRESENTLY,  WE SUPPORT  THE FOLLOWING MINISTRIES:

     
   

Paul and Teresa Koehler

 
   

THE STORYTELLERS

After 25 fruitful years of ministry in Mexico, Paul and his wife Theresa were led to India in 1994 to work with a large church-planting mission. In 2001, they drew from their experience to find a more effective way of communicating the Bible among these low-literacy populations. The result was a pilot program based on the idea of teaching the Bible through oral storytelling. They began training new Christians who demonstrated the ability and desire to spread the Gospel themselves. This program served as the basis for Paul’s dissertation for his Ph.D. in Missions. The success of the Storytellers program has led to the planting of at least 100 new congregations per year in villages that had been highly resistant to Christianity.


 

 

Ron and Shirley Hudson

NEW TRIBES MISSION

Ron and Shirley Hudson serve with New Tribes Mission, a Christian effort that sends missionaries into remote areas of the world. Their personal accounts of field work throughout their career testify to their special calling, motivation, and protection by the God they so blessedly serve. Ron has survived certain death at the hands of natives, many of whom became believers and servants of God. As a pilot himself, Ron has lived through close calls and even a plane crash, demonstrating God’s protection for this mighty Christian who has made such a difference in the world, bringing the Gospel to primitive people who have never heard the name of Jesus. They now reside in Morgan, Texas, but remain active: still travelling to remote places around world and throughout the United States, speaking and preaching in churches and mission conferences.

 

 

            Joy Punnoose

NATIVE MISSIONARY MOVEMENT

Joy Punnoose and his wife Grace were members of Cornerstone for several years before they relocated to Canada, where he now oversees the Canadian office of NMM.  This organization was founded by Thomas Mathews, Grace’s father, in the Indian state of Rajastan. When Rev. Mathews began there over 40 years ago, he could find no believers in the state.  By the time of his death in 2005, he had seen over 250,000 converts and over 1,300 churches established.  In turn, his son-in-law, Joy, was appointed to oversee the ministry.  Joy has built this ministry so that now, the annual conference draws more than 50,000 enthusiastic believers.  Joy, believing in and living under the Lord's protection, often enters dangerous locations in India as he fulfills his responsibilities as overseer, counselor, teacher, and all the other roles he plays in spreading God's Word and baptising new believers. When he visits Cornerstone, he always shares his teams achievements. Cornerstone provides office space in our building for NMM, U.S Division. 

 

Lovey Phillips

GOD LOVES KIDS

 

Lovie Phillips and her son, Phil, provide oversight to GLK with headquarters in Rockwall, TX. What started in 1973 as an attempt to help a few children has evolved into caring for thousands and is now reaching some of the most needy children in the world in Africa, India, and Nepal in 14 different homes and schools. In recent years, we have transitioned from the  former name (Christian Communications Commission, Inc.) into the name “God Loves Kids” because it is their heart to bring to the neglected and hurting children of the world the touch of a loving God, one who loved them so much He gave His only begotten Son to die for them. More about their ministry can be found at www.godloveskids.com
