Kenya Mission Trips
Cornerstone sends at least one short-term mission team to Northern Kenya every year.
In 2016, we were fortunate enough to send two! Going to Kenya involves a lot more than
the two weeks our teams spend in Africa each time they go: they meet on a regular basis.
Team members commit to getting together consistently for 9 - 12 months, leading up to and
continuing after the trip. The approximate cost per person $4,200 which covers airfare,
in-country transportation, food and lodging.
You can be part of the team by praying regularly for those going, those who will be
reached, and ministry partners already working in Kenya, or by making a financial
contribution to Cornerstone Church for the Kenya Mission Team. Your support helps cover
traveling costs and needed supplies. If you're interested in traveling to Kenya with on a
2017 Cornerstone Traveling Team, please fill out
the application byDecember 19, 2016, and send a $250 deposit. Cornerstone
Church plans to send at least one team to the Turkana area of Northern Kenya in 2017. The
tentative dates are June 17 - July 1 and up to two other teams to connect with partners
among the Rendille, Gabbra, and Samburu people. Planning is still underway.
More details about past and future trips can be found on our Kenya Mission Trip page.
In community with the local Church, World Relief envisions the most vulnerable people

get clean water and the Gospel message to people who do not have access to either.
You could have a global impact right here in Greater Grand Rapids by volunteering at the Thrift Store at 60th and Kalamazoo Ave. Volunteering at
the Thrift Store directly equals funding for Zoe Waters, getting clean water and the
Gospel to people who don't have access to either.
