Prayer is essential for both the specific mission efforts of CCK and the global work of reaching every nation with the Gospel.
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest (Matthew 9:36-38).”
In light of Jesus’ encouragement, we want to pray earnestly that God would use our church to send out workers into the harvest. Monthly mission prayer meetings are being held to facilitate prayer for missions and to educate the church on how to pray for international missions.
Cornerstone Church of Knoxville also contributes to the International Mission Board, an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, as they seek to partner with churches in sending missionaries to every corner of the world.
