Missionaries

Cornerstone Bible Church has a history of supporting missionaries around the world and locally. The command of Christ in Matthew 28:18–20 is part of our church DNA. We want to make disciples around the world and in every nation. Below is the list of missionaries CBC has supported since its beginning.

  • Cliff & Judy Anderson

    This dynamic couple met and married at the age of 40, had a baby at age 41, and headed to the mission field at age 42! Serving with Wycliffe Bible Translators (WBT) in the Philippines for several years, Cliff used his IT expertise to support the translators there. Cliff and Judy now serve on the team at JAARS Center (Jungle Aviation and Radio Service) in Waxhaw, North Carolina, an arm of Wycliffe that provides equipment, training, and high-tech services to Bible translators in field locations around the world.

  • Everett & Susan Bracken

    Everett serves as director of the Parkview Christian Learning Center, a Gwinnett county Released Time organization that offers religious courses to Parkview High School students. Started in 2002 by Everett, our former CBC youth pastor, over 700 students have taken PCLC classes.  The class meets every day during 7th period at CBC.  The goal of the PCLC class is to provide excellent teachers, transformative curriculum, and a welcoming environment.  Students are encouraged to practice what they learn to see God's Truth come alive.

  • Boyden & Lois Donmoyer

    Another longtime Wycliffe Bible Translators (WBT) couple, Boyden and Lois served 21 years in Peru before returning to Stone Mountain to work in the WBT Southeast Regional Office for another 20 years.

  • Rob & tammy kocher

    Rob and Tammy both came to know the Lord at an early age.  Early on in life they both desired to be in ministry. They met each other in college and in 2000 graduated with bachelor's degrees in Biblical Education and International Missions, respectively. After the birth of their two kids, Robby and Charisa, Rob had the opportunity to study Accounting. During this time, they began to sense the Lord was leading them into ministry where they would enable world missions through administration and hospitality.  As they prayed about what the Lord might have for them, He led them to Ambassadors for Christ International (AFCI). In 2009, they moved from Pennsylvania to Georgia and are now fully engaged in the work of AFCI. Rob currently serves as the International Office Administrator.  His responsibilities include assisting the International Director, overseeing finances, and managing the technology needs of the ministry. In addition to homeschooling their children, Tammy provides hospitality for traveling ministers and is a trainer for AFCI's women's ministry, Focus on the Heart.
