Mission Network News (MNN) is the broadcast ministry of Cornerstone University that reports on the work on mission agencies and relief organizations around the world.

Mission Network News was started in 1991 by World Concern, a ministry of Christa Ministries. The radio network started on the air on more than 200 Christian radio stations primarily in the United States. Hosted by Peter Brooks, MNN grew to more than 750 radio outlets around the world. It was produced by The Raymond Group or TRG until 1995 when Cornerstone University acquired the broadcast ministry.

In doing so we hope to educate and motivate Christians to prayer, participation, and support of missionary work to help further the Great Commission."

When Cornerstone acquired Mission Network News in 1995, Cornerstone University hired AP Award-winning journalist Greg Yoder to serve as the executive director. has served as the anchor and executive director since 1995. Since 1997, Ruth Bliss (since 2007, Ruth Kramer) has served as the producer. MNN reports news and information you'd typically hear on international news networks, however each story focuses on how those stories impact Christian work around the world. People from all over the world can also listen to MNN online at the website. MNN is also translated into Spanish.
