Mission Network News Changes Hands

MNN-color-logoFor just over 20 years, Cornerstone University has been privileged to serve followers of Jesus Christ through the ministry known as Mission Network News. The award winning Mission Network News is both a radio broadcast and online site providing up-to-date daily news of God’s work around the world. It received NRB’s International Impact award in 2012 and NRB’s Radio Program Of The Year (short form) in 2009.

In assessing MNN’s future for growth along with other educational programs, Cornerstone realized it had resourced MNN as much as it could, knowing there was even greater potential for MNN to thrive. After months of vetting options and possible ministry partners resourced well enough to grow MNN, One Way Ministries was the clear choice to fulfill Cornerstone’s dreams and One Way Ministries’ aspirations to engage and equip more people to serve Jesus Christ and His directive to share the Gospel around the world.

On June 1, 2016, One Way Ministries (Naperville, IL) will acquire and assume ownership and operations of Mission Network News. One Way Ministries, based in Naperville IL, is an organization called to reach people through a variety of Christ-centered ministries and partnerships from around the world and see multitudes come to know and love Jesus Christ. One Way does so by fueling global prayer movements through Prayercast.com, by producing music and hosting worship events, and by equipping volunteers and interns from across the country to share the Gospel. More information can be found at the ministry’s website, www.owm.org.

With exception to a change replacing Cornerstone University’s name with that of One Way Ministries in both the broadcasts and online platforms, there are no immediate changes planned. Mission Network News will still provide its 4½, 2 and 1 minute news programs (hosted by MNN’s current host, Ruth Kramer), and continue to provide these same stories and more on MNN’s website.

Merging the excellence and global influence of MNN’s broadcast and online content with its existing network of people and resources, One Way Ministries will capitalize on the strength of both ministries’ audio and video platforms to enhance and advance its overall ability in connecting people to engage and become active participants in what God is doing around the world.

For information on stories related to MNN’s broadcast, website and social media platforms, contact the Executive Producer of MNN, Ruth Kramer, at 616.755.NEWS(6397) or ruth@mnnonline.org. For information regarding media partner accounts/invoicing or other operational or administrative concerns, contact the Operations Director of One Way Ministries, Rich Huls, at 630.956.6687 or rich@owm.org. The Executive Director of One Way Ministries, Michael Thompson, is also available at 630.945.0927 or mt@owm.org. Mission Network News will have several remote offices around the Midwest. Packages or hard copy correspondence may be addressed to Mission Network News c/o One Way Ministries, 4170 Ogden Ave, Aurora, IL 60504; phone 630.626.4990.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
