Cornerstone Fellowship

Wednesdays — 6 pm

Cornerstone Fellowship

Cornerstone Fellowship is an eight-month program in discipleship, leadership, the integration of faith and work, and community engagement. The goal is to form Christians who meaningfully integrate their faith into all aspects of their life – responding to the call to serve God and to serve others in impactful ways.

  1. A greater sense of self-awareness and personal vision in the context of God’s vision and calling
  2. Disciplines to continue their spiritual growth beyond the Fellowship
    Christian leadership capabilities
  3. The framework to see work as a place of worship, formation, and mission
  4. A broadened theology around the gospel, the church, and her mission
  5. Awareness of and connections to key cultural and civic issues in Houston

I am very grateful for an important new initiative of SJD: The Cornerstone Fellowship. This is a high-commitment, program year-long ministry in discipleship and leadership aimed at greater integration of faith and work, and deepening community engagement. We are launched this fall with an initial cohort of 12 SJD members. The goal is to help participants grow in their capacity to embody the faith in all spheres of their lives. Our parish vision involves wanting SJD to be a brighter light to the city with our members bearing the gospel into new relationships to foster flourishing and to share the love of Christ. The Cornerstone Fellowship represents an exciting new way we are stepping into that vision.  ~ Leigh Spruill

The Cornerstone Fellowship has provided the opportunity to be intentional about focusing on my spiritual journey. Besides, I have begun to develop a wonderful community with a great group of people.  ~ Patricia Snyder
This program has opened my eyes to see God more clearly and what it means to live in Christ-likeness. In doing so, it has brought me more peace, purpose, and gratitude. The readings were well-picked and have been very timely for certain difficult situations that I’ve been dealing with. The fellowship with the other cornerstone fellows has also brought me comfort in knowing that I’m not alone in my faith journey and that it doesn’t have to be a private or solo struggle. ~ Becky Stehle
