Description Cornerstone is a Bible College for Mission Training, offering practical and academic training in a mission oriented setting. Most staff have in-depth mission experience. We train people to communicate the gospel cross culturally. Besides the general biblical and theological studies, our emphasis is on missiological subjects, intercultural communication and preparation to live and work in another culture. Living in the international community of the college is part of the training. Cornerstone offers a one year full-time program (certificate), a two year full-time program (diploma), and a one year full-time program focused on migrant and refugee ministry (Doorstep Training). We prepare adults who want to go into cross cultural mission. We are part of WEC, but have trained people for many mission organisations, aid agencies and church mission outreaches. We also offer short courses and part time programmes, especially suited for missionaries on home assignment.
