Meet the Cornerstone Staff
"I believe that our greatest need is to know Christ. I also believe that Christ is made known all through the Bible. Therefore, I absolutely love to preach about the glories of Christ and the Gospel which God has set on display in the Scriptures and point people to find their complete satisfaction in Him."
