BENEFITING: Cornerstone Church
HOURS PLEDGED: 999,999,999
In August 2009, Cornerstone Church Milwaukee was birthed with a handful of Jesus-loving radicals meeting in an apartment living room. Since then, God has increased our numbers as we've given ourselves to almost daily prayer meetings and on-the-street evangelism, crying out for the lost in our city and then going out and rescuing them.
In the whole course of events, as we've been pressing in to God to see city transformation, we found a $300,000 building that would be perfect to house the revival center we're believing God for. It's located right across the street from the UWM dorms, in the heart of the city, and it looked perfect the moment we saw it. So, like any radicals would do, we put in an offer for less than half the price in the hopes that God would bless our endeavor. He did. We've got an accepted offer on the building for $140,000, and being a young church, we're gonna need your help to purchase it.
As a movement, we're not into the idea of just collecting bigger and nicer buildings. We're believing God to create a center of revival for Milwaukee. Here's some of what we'll use the building for:
- 24/7 Prayer: we want to build a house a prayer in Milwaukee that will shake not just this city, but the nations
- Solid Rock Ministry Training School: we're raising up a generation of pastors and ministry leaders who know God and walk in power
- Evangelism / Outreach: from concerts to movie nights, seminars to crusades to street evangelsiim, we're committed to sharing the Gospel with this city
- Changing Lives: right across from the dorms, we expect to see thousands come through our doors and turned into radical disciples of Jesus
- Worship: our desire is to lift high the name of Jesus as much as we can, and we're gonna use this building to see Him glorified in the city
Where do you come in? Glad you asked. Like I mentioned, we're a young church, and most of us have set aside high-paying jobs in favor of bringing the message of Jesus to Milwaukee full-time. We're gonna need your help to purchase this building and turn it into a center for revival, and we're gonna have to do it quick. We need to have the money raised by August 10, so please be praying for us, and please give toward what God is building in our midst. You can make an impact in a city for eternity!
