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

Ethnos 360 MISSION

Ron and Shirley Hudson serve with Ethnos 360 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.

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.

GOD LOVES KIDS

Lovie Phillips, the Founder of God Loves Kids, and her son, Phil, Vice President of GLK, provide oversight to GLK with headquarters in Royse City, 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 godloveskids.com

Halls to Israel Ministries - Part of Globe Internationa

In 2003 LaVoy “Johnny” and Pat Hall founded Halls to Israel Ministries and began leading short-term mission trips to Israel. They host work and humanitarian trips, while touring the country and offering the experience of Israeli culture. Trip participants also minister to those in need through servant evangelism. Each trip usually lasts two to three weeks each with 4 to 14 volunteers. The ministry primarily works in the homes of single mothers and victims of terrorism by meeting practical needs like painting and maintenance work.  In 2008 Johnny and Pat launched a feeding program that provides temporary assistance in the form of food vouchers for needy Israeli families trying to get back on their feet. This outreach has proven to be an excellent way not only to help families in need, but also to open doors that provide countless ways for the L-rd to touch the hearts of many Israeli people. The Halls continue as volunteers today making their work trips and expanding their feeding program. Johnny and Pat graduated from Liberty Bible College and were members of Liberty Church for 29 years serving in various ministerial positions. In 2001 they became members of Northridge Church where Johnny is currently employed full-time. Pat is employed full-time at a local retail pharmacy.  Johnny and Pat base their ministry operation in Pensacola, Florida.
