Global Missions Team
WHO WE ARE
The Global Ministry Team was established in 2005 with the purpose of serving the local body as well as our partnerships around the world. It is an enthusiastic group of dedicated people that has evolved with each changing season of life and ministry at Cornerstone. Over the years, the team has been comprised of individuals ranging in age, backgrounds, and experience...all of them passionate about helping "fully devoted followers of Christ" to bridge cultural, geographical, and philosophical barriers to embody and announce the glory of God and His love as seen in the life of Jesus!
WHAT WE DO
Each Team Leader is an advocate for Global Ministry within the community... regularly praying for and serving our partnerships, educating themselves in the study of missions, training and equipping God's people within Cornerstone, and committed to caring for those that are an extension of our body--both locally and overseas!
Meet the Team Below:

Todd’s heart for Cornerstone is that we would be a family of men and women who know God rightly, worship Him intimately, are transformed by Him fully, and are unleashed to join Him on His amazing mission.
