CORNERSTONE POSITION:  MINISTER OF WORSHIP AND FAMILY

 

Cornerstone Summary:

 

Cornerstone Ministries is searching for a Worship and Family Pastor.  We planted Cornerstone in 2011 in the county seat of Watseka.  In 2016, God opened the door to purchase a school building 6 miles south of Watseka in Woodland, Illinois.  We have the blessing of a gymnasium/worship center, ample rooms with space to grow while remaining debt free. 

 

We are a multi-generational church and we enjoy a Contemporary/blended style of worship.  Our location has introduced us to many new families with teens and children.  We have a good reputation with our local community and the surrounding area.  Our reach extends into most of Iroquois County.

 

Cornerstone exists to glorify God and make growing disciples.  Our strategy is for the lost and new folks to COME.  We then encourage them to CONNECT.  From there they GROW and SERVE and proceed to GO and win others to Christ.  From our beginning we have held to 6 values: Worship, Evangelism, Family, Prayer, Service and Discipleship.
