STEP Ministry

Cornerstone Bible Fellowship is a partner with several other churches in the STEP ministry. STEP is a partnership of local churches that extends the caring hands and feet of Jesus to the inner city and to schools around the Little Rock metro area. The ministry provides you with the opportunity to make a difference in the life of an at-risk child in the name of Christ.

The ministry is carried out through three primary programs:

Mentoring Program
