From Out to In

“In” is such a small yet powerful word. Have you ever really taken the time to think about what “In” really means? I’ve spent my whole life being “In” and trying to …

Thank you for visiting this site, my name is Mandi Cornett and I am the director of Cleanse. Fill. Pour. Women’s Ministry. I have been married to John for twenty-seven years, which is over half of my lifetime! I am the mother of three, mother-in-law to one and a MiMi to two. We have ministered in northwest Indiana for the last seventeen years with Youth for Christ-Campus Life. Currently, we open our home to teens, John runs all the ministry and I help with the middle school group and I also “do life” and “walk” with various young women throughout their teen-aged years.

I joined my first Bible Study twenty-some years ago and I have been teaching for the last eighteen years in several different churches. I started out as a “Precepts Girl”, then teacher, and as the Lord opened the door…ten years ago I started Cleanse. Fill. Pour. Women’s Ministry and started writing my own curriculum- with my latest non-fiction book being, “From Out to IN” which is based on Ephesians.

I have a heart for discipleship and teaching women how to be the part of the Body that God has called them to be. Recently, I became the director of Women’s Ministry for Liberty Bible Church- LP and I am looking forward to what the Lord will accomplish there. My heart’s desire is to see women come to understand the life-changing relationship that Jesus Christ offers and to see them mature in Him and be who He has created them to be.

Purpose and Vision…

Cleanse. Fill. Pour. is a women’s ministry designed to encourage, equip and strengthen women who are followers of Jesus Christ. My heart’s desire is to see women mature in Christ, grow in discipleship and be a fully devoted follower of Jesus. The name, Cleanse. Fill. Pour. comes from the Truth that in Christ, we are cleansed – New Creatures – we are called to be continually cleansed, filled and poured out. We all pour out, but the question is – what are we pouring – and from what source do we pour?

As I have walked with Jesus for the last twenty-five years I’ve found that understanding my identity in Christ is vital and absolutely life-changing! Here’s the thing, it is not accidental. I haven’t accidentally matured in discovering, knowing, and being changed by who I am in Christ. It is a long, but exciting process. Another thing that is vital for our transformation is learning to walk by faith and grace in the finished work of the Cross of Christ. The work of Calvary is the only thing that can bring us from “Out” of relationship to God to “IN” Him, but that is not all that Jesus accomplished at the Cross. We are “IN” Him now, by faith and grace alone, and His work accomplished the new creation for our new power source…the Holy Spirit! I so deeply desire for women to see, understand and then grow in that Truth.

I’ve seen and experienced a lot of bondage, brokenness and hurt in my lifetime, some of my own doing and some hurt due to the actions of others. I am sure you have noticed- life is messy. Jesus Christ and His finished Work on the Cross gave believers a whole new identity. He also gave us His power source, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit can rescue, redeem, and turn wounds into beautiful scars. My scars have a redemptive story to tell and I am thankful for being a part of His Body, the Body of Christ. So do yours. He wants to rescue, heal and redeem all part of our lives….that is true Hope! Learning, understanding and believing those Truths are part of the vision of Cleanse. Fill. Pour. Women’s Ministry.

A bit about the everyday me…

~I love Jesus, His Word, and His people. I want to see those who don’t know Him, find Him, and those who do know Him get to know Him better. I’m a recovering Pharisee and learning bit by bit…step by step… what His Abundant Grace does in a life!

~I love my family, and my husband is my best friend. I love my kids. I am learning how to be a mom to an adult child with another one right around the corner (who knew that was hard?) I love that too!

~I have the privilege of walking with my mom in these latter years of her life. My dad finished his race of faith with his last long stretch being riddled with Alzheimer’s. Many suffered in this process and that was really tough, but I learned a lot about the grace of Our God. I can honestly say that my faith was strengthened and my perspective about grace was changed.

~I love to drink coffee in my new “grandma” mug and think. I’m a big fan of thinking!

~As long as you can’t see it, it doesn’t bother me….much! I’m a drawer and closet stuffer.

~I think I’m funnier than I actually am, but if I can get a small snort or even an eye roll, I am okay with that.

What we believe…

1.We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

2.We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1 and John 1)

3.We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.(all of the Gospels)

4.We believe that Salvation is by grace and faith alone in the finished work of Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9) and that Jesus Christ is the Only Way to have a right relationship with God. (John 14:6)

5.We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.(Ephesians 1:13-14)

6.We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.(Romans 8)

7.We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal separation from God.(all of the Gospels)

8. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ. (1 Corinthians 12)

Some Ministry Experience…

I have taught many Bible Studies and workshops. I have been the main speaker at events and retreats. My specialty is expository teaching and I prefer the NASB version of the Bible. I believe teaching the Word in context is vital and I “connect the dots” of the history throughout the Old Testament and New quite frequently. I promise…my teaching will always come back to Jesus and His finished work at the cross.

Here are some ideas:

“Embraced by God” a 4 session option based on the book of Habakkuk

“Broken Vessels” a 3 sessions option based on John 4, the woman at the well

“It is Finished” a 4 sessions option based on the last 3 word of Jesus Christ, the Truth of His words changed everything!

“Identity Theft” a 4 session option based on our identity in Christ

“The Masterpiece” a 4 session option based on Ephesians

“Let Your Roots Show” a 4 session option revolving around growing deep roots of faith.

I am happy to discuss any topic or text and customize something specific for your event. Again, it will be based in Scripture and always point to Jesus. If you are planning an event, I’d love to help you.
