What is Purity + Peace?
Purity + Peace is a small group for any women (married or single) seeking healing and reconciliation from past hurts and “failures” (whether from romantic relationships, family, friendships, poor choices, bad habits, etc.) and are seeking accountability in remaining mentally and physically pure. If you feel strained with life, stress, anxiety/depression and want to commit to purity, this group will help you get on track toward purity and peace. Topics include, “What is Purity?,” “Your body is the temple,” “The importance of covenants” and “How to get accountability.” Additionally, the ministry offers a purity ceremony for all women who want to dedicate themselves to a lifetime of purity and vow to remain sexually pure until their marriage day. 




Note: Unfortunately, there is no childcare during these sessions.

Mission Puerto Rico



"If you have an opportunity to accomplish something that will make things better for someone coming behind you, and you don't do that, you are wasting your time on this earth." 
— Roberto Clemente

 The last time I visited Puerto Rico was when I was 12 years old. It was with my grandmother and my parents and we explored the radius of the island, circulating it two times during our vacation. I remember so many beautiful things about the island and sadly I have not returned; until now.

The two hurricanes that swept through the Caribbean this late summer left the island in devastation. Actually, hurricane Maria hit while we were doing 10 Days of Prayer here in Bridgeport and all I could do was interceded in prayer for the people and the island. I felt God tugging at me about visiting PR, so when I saw the missions coordinator from Cornerstone Christian Center post about a possibility in coordinating a PR mission relief trip, my husband and I knew the Lord wanted us to go.

Although this is under sad circumstances, we are excited for the opportunity to bring a bit of relief to our beloved island and specifically to our loved ones. We will be visiting two towns while we are there: Arecibo and Maunabo. A sister from my church's family is in Arecibo and my husband's family is Maunabo. 

We are asking that our friends and family please consider contributing to our trip. There are two ways you can contribute:

— THE FIRST WAY YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE —

Supplies. The basis of our trip is to provide a good amount of aid and relief to the two towns we are visiting. Many organizations are collecting different kinds of supplies, but we specifically are requesting certain kinds of supplies that include: collapsible bucks, water filters, solar powered items such as headlamps, fans, lightbulbs, phone chargers, etc., batteries, bug spray, suntan lotion, small/travel-size hygiene items.

****Please take a look at this PUERTO RICO SUPPLY LIST on Pinterest that we created.**** 

When browsing the Pinterest list, you can click on an item and it will take you to a landing page where you can purchase the item online. Should you decide to purchase the items online, please have the items shipped to: Cornerstone Christian Center, 192 Meadow Street Milford, CT. You may also hand deliver these items to this address as well.


— THE SECOND WAY YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE —

Directly support our trip. DJ and I need to raise funds to support our trip. These funds will cover the cost for food, lodging, airfare, missions supplies, etc. The cost of our trip is $1,600 for each of us. Please consider making a financial contribution toward the cost of our trip. 

You can do so right online: SUPPORT DJ AND VIKKI'S MISSION TRIP


— THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS! —

Please pray for us. We want to THANK YOU in advance for your contributions to our trip. We are lastly asking for the most IMPORTANT aspect of our trip, and that is YOUR PRAYERS. Due to the devastation of the island, the people of PR are feeling desperate and many desperate situations are taking place. Please pray for our safety, protection and for traveling mercies. It would really mean a lot to us if you partnered with us in prayer. 

If you have any questions about this trip, please feel free to email missions@cornerstonemilford.org. Someone will be in contact with you. 

Blessings! xoxo

10 Days of Prayer — Bridgeport


It's an exciting week here in Bridgeport as we anticipate the 10 Days of Prayer event that starts Wednesday, September 20 and runs through Saturday, September 30. During the 10 Days, it will be 24/7 nonstop worship and prayer; at any given time of the day, you can find a worship service at New Vision International Church at 130 Gregory Street, Bridgeport, CT.

My husband and I have put together a band to lead the 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. worship set. We will be ministering with musicians that we have ministered with since we were young, and this is a really unique and exciting experience.

If you would like to be a part of this event, definitely do not hesitate to attend the round-the-clock worship services. It is going to be something special!

Pastor Luis Burgos of City Wide Church, Bridgeport, has mobilized numerous worship leaders in the area to take time slots throughout the week. In an effort to do so, he opened up his home to us in the weeks leading up to this event. At the first brainstorming session, we ended up in his backyard sitting around a fire pit, worshiping God with spontaneous songs. This ignited something within us all! Pastor Burgos decided to hold a few more of these events in his backyard to bring all of the local worship leaders together for nights of worship and praise. It has been a life-changing experience.

Below are the live video streams of these bonfire worship sets. I pray they bless your life entirely. The amount of talent and anointing that is over the worship leaders in Bridgeport is incredible. My husband and I are blessed beyond measure to be a part of something so special that is happening in our hometown. We pray for revival in Bridgeport and hope that these 10 Days of Prayer will bring heaven down to earth. We know God has something special for our city and we are believing that God is using this generation to do a mighty work in the lives of the people of Bridgeport. It is an honor to be a part of it.

If you would like to listen to the worship songs we will be singing during the 10 Days of Prayer, feel free to follow our worship playlist here:

Many blessings to you!
