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.

  • 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. Boyden went to be with the Lord in March 2020 and Lois is now retired and lives in New Mexico. 

  • Don & Ruth may

  • Argyris & Dina Petrou

    Argyris and Dina Petrou are serving the Lord with AMG International in Greece. The Lord has called Argyris to step by faith into a full-time teaching position at the Greek Bible College, after 10 years of pastoral experience in Toronto and Piraeus, 8 years in the evangelistic and publishing work of AMG Greece, and 12 years in the leadership of the Greek Evangelical Alliance.

    In addition to serving as a professor at the Greek Bible College (the only Bible school in Greece), he is also a preacher and ordained minister of the Greek Evangelical Church and a published author through the Greek publishing house, O LOGOS.

    At the same time, the Lord called Dina to a cutting-edge ministry at the fringe of society after years of being a pastor's wife and a mom. After serving for 8 years as a visitor-witness to downtown Athens brothels every Wednesday morning, now she is founding the House of Damaris, a Christian safe house for victims of trafficking and prostitution. 

    Argyris and Dina have three sons: Mark, Erik, and Erastos.

  • Gene & martha purvis

    This energetic couple served 12 years as church planters in Costa Rica before returning in 1998 to the USA. God then lead them to minister among the burgeoning immigrant Hispanic population right here in the States. They now reside in Kathleen, GA. and began a new Hispanic church plant in Perry, GA.

  • Lawrence & barbara trumbower

    Lawrence and Barbara were missionaries in Puerto Rico. Their ministry goals are to make known the Word of God, its teachings, principles for life, and message of salvation to as many individuals in Puerto Rico as possible. The means by which they did this is through three Rock Radio Network stations. However, it is a time of change for them both. The arrangement between GMI and another organization, Calvary Evangelistic Mission (CEM), has come to an end. They both are looking at other options with GMI where they can serve. One possible area is at a new Bible Training Center in Bolivia. Please pray for God to guide them in this transition.
