The Cornerstone Ministry Center is the home of 

                       Children's Bible Ministries of SWPA                               

     Children's Bible Ministries of SWPA began in 1970 when Mrs. Reba Miller saw a need for sounds biblical instruction in our local schools.  This was the genesis of the Released Time Bible Program in SWPA.  It has blossomed in a ministry that services 23 schools in Greene, Fayette, and Washington counties.  As a reward for memory work, attendance, and other behaviors the students could earn discounts towards summer camp held at local camps that were rented for a week.  

     In 2008, we received the call the we had been praying about for years.  God, through Consol Energy Corp. gave us a 30 acre property for our very own camp.  This property, through many countless hours of work by volunteers from all over the country has become the Cornerstone Ministry Center that we all know and love today.  Our first campers walked through the doors in 2010 and we have been blessed to see the number of children on the property grow every single year. 

     CBM of SWPA is one area of Children's Bible Ministries.  Children's Bible Ministries was founded in Florida in 1935 and has grown to currently have 13 Area Ministries in  8 states. Our missions teaches God's Word through the ministry of the 3 C's.
