What Is Cornerstone Youth?

Cornerstone Youth is a growing group of friends who have decided to be “all in” for Jesus and His Kingdom.

At Cornerstone Youth, we believe the best way to grow in our faith is through increased biblical literacy, a diverse team of leaders, and belonging to our local church.

A Growing Biblical Literacy

At Cornerstone Youth we believe only Jesus Christ is capable of saving us. The best way to know who Jesus is, how to grow in a relationship with Him, and to learn the story of our salvation is through time in His Word. Each week we gather with our students and take time to read the Bible and teach it in a way that is equipping and informative. This usually happens at our weekly youth programming.

A Diverse Team of Leaders

At Cornerstone Youth we believe God has made every person unique and different. We also believe God loves diversity with all of His people. With that in mind, we try our best to have a well-rounded and diverse team of paid and volunteer leaders of different ages, backgrounds, and vocational callings. Each youth life group has two or three adult leaders to grow in relationship with students as they help guide them on their spiritual journey.

A Belonging to the Church

At Cornerstone Youth we believe the best way to foster a lifelong faith is to be connected to the local church. This means we try to find new and creative ways to have students become active in as many areas as possible. This experience allows students to meet adult role models outside of youth programming, helps them to develop their spiritual gifts, and equips them to be part of their local church body.

July 26 - August 5

Cornerstone Youth is going to Chicago! Upcoming 9th graders through graduating 12th graders are invited to a 3-day training at Touch the World in Pennsylvania and then onto Chicago to serve with Inner City Impact, a nonprofit ministry that focuses on discipling inner-city children and youth. The trip will be from July 26 - August 5. The cost of the trip will be based on fundraising efforts through May, and our hope is that the trip will be of no cost to students or very minimal. If there is a cost, scholarships are available. Questions? Contact Pastor Jack at jhein@cornerstonenj.org.

Upcoming Events

We have so many events and activities in addition to our regularly scheduled programming. Seasonally, we have weekend retreats, special fun events like color runs and murder mysteries, worship services, and missions trips here, near, and far. We hope you can join us for these events.
