Job Description:

A little about what we’re looking for:


It’s the fourth obstacle…the muddy peaks and we’re up to our eyeballs in mud. It takes a team to get through the obstacle and press on to the next as we race to the finish line. Cornerstone is on a mission, to sharpen our vision for the future and press on to realize that vision. We need another teammate who wants to get down and dirty and do some heavy lifting in pursuit of the finish line.


The team needs a worship pastor who is pumped about leading our congregation in authentic worship. We certainly want a talented individual, but more important to us is finding the right person with a heart for God and a passion for ministry.



We know we’re on point at Cornerstone when we’re working to help people Know God, Grow Together, and Serve Others.


A little about us:


Cornerstone is a church of 300+ awesome people and a few that are so so. In the last 8 years Cornerstone has grown from 175 to our current size today. We come together with a humble spirit of contagious excitement, and a desire for God to be glorified in all we do. We have a wide range of spiritual maturity and life experiences that magnify our differences and yet we find unity in the love of coffee and appreciation for eachother.  Tons of work has gone into infrastructure and planning because we believe God is going to just bless in wild ways in the future. We received a call late last year, it was 1972 and they wanted their building back. We decided to give it back and we recently completed a renovation of the majority of the main level of our facilities, and are currently planning for our next ministry project.
