Reconciling People to God, and People to People



When we read the New Testament there are two obvious questions we need to ask…

Firstly, does my life look like the life of a disciple?

Secondly, and most importantly, do I want it to? 

At the CSM these are the questions that drive the future that God is calling us into. 

If you are hungry to step into all the Father has for you, hungry to see the Kingdom being released in you and through you, and hungry to see lives touched by God and transformed forever then CSM could be for you. 



We believe that when Jesus commissioned his disciples to bring transformation to the nations He also commissioned us. As Jesus followers our goal is to see people step into their Identity, Authority and Assignment as they release hope and life to the city, and beyond, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

CSM is not like any normal school. Our goal is not just to inform you with information but to bring revelation which brings the transformation of God. 

We uncover Kingdom truths together in a space where taking risks is normal and encouraged, and then activated as we take these Kingdom truths to the city.

A key part of the CSM is ‘activating’ our teaching, and stepping out and putting it into action. Discipleship isn’t only about what you know, it’s also about what you do - we are commissioned to imitate Jesus in his words and his works. As we step out in boldness and faith we will see His kingdom coming in presence and power, and we get to be part of the story the Father is writing over our city.

Some of the types of outreach you will do:

Prayer on the Streets
Street Evangelism
Treasure Hunting

Jesus tells us that the goal of discipleship is to become like your master and as we journey to becoming more like Jesus there will be an expectation of self-leadership in order to live a transformational life. It is our commitment to help each student, as much as possible, to become a mature follower of Jesus. With this there comes levels of commitment and responsibility.

As we place our lives before God as a living sacrifice, on which revival fires burn, it is our commitment to journey towards holiness and purity in every area of our lives. This directly impacts both our life in private and in public.

extra opportunities

As well as participating in the CSM, there is also an opportunity for students to participate in the running of ministries within Cornerstone City Church. 

Cornerstone is a vibrant church seeking to build a great city, release life, and (to quote John Piper) see the supremacy of Christ in every corner of our community. If students wish to learn how to lead in a hands on ministry setting, then this is a great opportunity to learn and grow.

Our desire is not to just have students serve our vision, but to identify what the Father has placed on them and to equip them to release it, not only in our city, but whenever they return home.

To this end, we will tailor each experience individually (as much as possible) according to the students divine destiny, all the while participating in a broad range of activities within the church.

Some of the areas students feel passionate about may include:

Kids’ Ministry
Youth Ministry
Church Planting/Leadership
And more

Through honest and honouring leadership, we will help students to clarify their assignment and what the Father is speaking over them. 

There is no extra cost to this.
