Our country is rapidly changing and becoming increasingly hostile to the Christian faith. The biblical foundations of our society are crumbling.

According to research from the Barna Group, roughly 70% of students that profess to be Christians that enter college leave having abandoned their faith. We could talk about all the various reasons for this statistic, but at the end of the day, it reveals that there is a battle for the very souls of our young people.

At Cornerstone Institute, we desire to help young people to understand their faith, learn practical skills to succeed in their vocation, and develop godly habits. To serve Christ and seek first His Kingdom!

Our program is designed to build up the next generation. We are not called to escape the world. The need of the hour is mature Christian young people that are confident in their faith and competent in their labor to strengthen churches, families, and communities for the future all to the glory of God.

Young people are tested daily to compromise their faith in Jesus Christ and obedience to His Word. They are  specifically targeted by the “Big Ed” system to forsake their Christian instruction and their parents. 

As philosopher Richard Roty said, “We are going to go right on trying to discredit you in the eyes of your children, trying to strip away your fundamentalist religious community of dignity, trying to make your views seem silly rather than discussable.”

The Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is a Christian worldview-training, vocational preparation, and faith formation program for high school seniors and recent graduates designed to build Kingdom culture in the workplace and all of life. The Institute is an independent and self-governing educational, cultural, and vocational ministry based in Carbondale, Illinois.
