You are expected to be a fully-committed follower of Jesus and have a ministry mindset.  You will need to produce a copy of your high school diploma or equivalent (GED) and exhibit a desire and intention to explore your calling for vocational church or mission ministry.



Many current Christian education models are expensive and encourage students to commit to sizeable debt, and often require students to pay for courses unrelated to their field of interest. At CSM, however, we will provide high quality and relevant ministry training through courses, mentoring, and practical experience that will not encourage debt or require courses that are unrelated to the ministry.

The cost of the program is $1000 per year. A non-refundable application fee of $100 is due with the submission of your application. This fee is credited toward your tuition upon your acceptance to CSM. Make checks payable to: Cornerstone Church

This amount covers tuition, most course materials, lunch on those days when classes meet, and off-site activities during that year.

Students have the opportunity to apply for limited scholarship funds.  Scholarship needs will be evaluated and determined by a consensus of the CSM pastoral leadership board.  Scholarships needs will be evaluated and determined on an annual basis.



The application packet can be obtained at the CSM offices located at Cornerstone Church. Or you can download the forms here:

Applicants must submit their completed application, reference forms, and the application fee to CSM Admissions by the spring/application deadline (Given on the cover sheet of the application form).

Completed application can be submitted by mail or in person.
