Experience, Equip, and Engage Ideas

Our vision at Cornerstone is to help people experience new life in Christ, to equip them to be fully devoted followers of Christ, and to engage our community and world for Christ. I challenged our youth to think of some practical ways that we could fulfill our vision. Here are some of their answers. After reading this, I hope you would agree with me that teens are capable of doing much more for the kingdom of God than they get credit for. These are some great ideas.
