Kenya Mission Trip

Cornerstone Church has been in ministry with different people groups in Northern Kenya since 2007, by sending short-term mission teams.

Cornerstone & Kenya in 2017

Cornerstone is sending three teams to Northern Kenya June 17 - July 2.

This is the first time we’ve sent three traveling teams to Northern Kenya simultaneously, with different partners! The teams – 13 people in all – will travel to Kenya together, then go to different areas.

One team, lead by Pete Westers, will go to Turkana and visit with our World Relief partners serving the Turkana people group.

Another team, lead by Terry Hanauer, will go to Archer's Post and Korr, visiting with our partners serving the Samburu and Rendille people groups.

A third team includes Pastor Brad Kalajainen, Brett Christiansen and Tracy Bowers and will visit multiple partners and capture stories, spending a couple of days with both teams. Ken & Shelly Watkins, members of Cornerstone representing Zoe Waters, will also be in the same areas connecting with partners. Teams have been meeting regularly for months preparing to go!

There is one other very important team, our "sending team." It's our largest one, and includes anyone who prayerfully or financially supports us. You can be part of the sending team by committing to pray every day for us!

Kenya is 7 hours ahead of West Michigan time.

Things to be Praying for the Traveling Teams

  • Safe travels, no delays of tire punctures or car issues. “The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.” (Psalm 121:5)
  • Health and strength for everyone. “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.” (James 5:14-15)
  • Protection of mind: “Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
  • Revival of spirit. “Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?” (Psalm 85:6)
  • For loved ones who are not traveling. “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

Kenya Mission Trips: A 10-Year Anniversary

This year marks a special anniversary for Cornerstone—it marks the 10th year we've been working in the country of Kenya to help unreached people know Jesus and make Him known. Below is a video highlighting many of the ways Cornerstone has impacted the people of Kenya.
