“Cornerstone has significantly influenced my adult walk of faith over the years, fueling a passion to see our graduates fuse their Christian beliefs and their personal and professional lives into a cohesive whole. In Jeremiah 29:11-13, God gives us a sense of purpose beyond career advancement alone, in which our avocations are a calling to service and a means to His ends as well as our own. Cornerstone’s vision for integrating a biblical worldview with traditionally secular subject matter successfully equips our students to impact the world beyond these walls for Jesus Christ.”
