ANDREW LAU

Lead Pastor (Exec Team)

As a learner, I love seeing what’s possible. Especially when I can help others steward their God-given abilities to live out God’s will. It’s exciting that our dream for a multi-ethnic church, where people use their God-given talents and strengths to serve the Kingdom, is now a reality!
You can often see me preaching and teaching at Cornerstone. I also help lead senior staff, partner with our board, work on strategic ministry, visioning, and I’m active in our counselling ministry.
I’ve been in ministry for 35+ years, received a Ph.D. in New Testament from the University of Aberdeen, and was an adjunct professor at Tyndale Theological Seminary. I live here in Markham with my wife, Libby, and our two children. I look forward to meeting you and working with you for God’s Kingdom.
Kerri McIntosh

KERRI McINTOSH

Director Children's Ministries

I’m a clown – literally. I LOVE having fun!
I believe there’s nothing better than teaching children right from scripture! I’m passionate about every child feeling, knowing and understanding that a GREAT BIG GOD loves them no matter what! And God values them enough to send His Son and wants each child to have a new life in Jesus.
My love for children’s ministry began when I attended Ontario Pioneer Camp as support staff at age 15 (I still serve as OPC’s summer program support). I further developed my skills by attending the Baptist Leadership Education Centre, and Centennial College’s ECE program.
My husband and biggest supporter, Todd, and I live here in Markham with our four great school-aged kids.
Libby Lau

LIBBY LAU

Food Director

I grew up surrounded by food in the family business, so it naturally became second nature to me. I recently retired as an early childhood centre chef where I worked for 17 years. My passion for creativity comes out in my menu planning and food preparation. As a maximizer,
I find it exciting to transform ordinary food into something unexpected. And I love cooking alongside others and providing cooking classes to help demystify the challenges of cooking.
My role includes overseeing Open Table Thursdays. Its where people who find joy in serving through the language of food intersect with others who are in need of refreshment, community, or a listening ear.
I’m married to Andrew, have two grown children and enjoy reading and writing in calligraphy.

STEVE SHAW

Discipleship Pastor (Exec Team)

Over twenty-five years ago when I was a seminary student, Cornerstone had recently been planted. That’s when I first learned of the church’s intentionally intercultural vision, and it compelled me deeply. So I began as a pastoral intern at Cornerstone… and haven’t left since.
I have a heart for guiding people into real-time transformational encounters with Jesus, and help people learn how to put the teachings of Jesus into practice. I oversee Cornerstone’s discipleship process, including supervision of core ministry staff, and involvement in strategic planning. You’ll often see me preaching and teaching.
Intercultural ministry, theological reflection, contemplative spirituality and Latin American missions are my passions.
I hold a Doctor of Ministry degree in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from Trinity Western University, and am a trained spiritual director. I live in Markham with my wife Jan and our three children. I look forward to journeying with you as you walk with Jesus.

Jeremy Tao

JEREMY TAO

Pastor of Group Life & Christian Ed

Church isn’t just Sunday, it’s Biblical Community! This is where life-change and mission happen best. We’re called to live in community.
I oversee the church’s various groups, classes and workshops. I love helping people connect into group life and hearing about their life transformation and how God gets into the midst of people doing life together! My role is to coach and train group leaders, so all our groups make the space for community and Jesus. I also help disciple people to discover their sense of identity in Jesus and experience God’s care and healing.
I started out as a Chartered Accountant and then became a pastor. I hold an M.Div. in Pastoral Ministry and Christian Education from Tyndale Theological Seminary. I live in Markham with my wife, Joanne, and our two daughters.

PETER TREMBLAY

Production Director

It’s a joy and privilege to use technology as a vehicle to bring God’s people together. I support all of the ministries at Cornerstone to create content and help cultivate a strong digital experience. I also have the privilege of overseeing our amazing production crews.
You’ll find me behind the scenes, troubleshooting, filming, editing and doing whatever it takes to enhance our in person experience and also bring it to life online.
Drawing on over 15 years of experience in IT, church production and even some reality TV, it’s an awesome privilege to share the love of Christ using a variety of technologies.
My wife Michelle and I live in Markham with our two children and love serving our community and the world at large, bringing the message of hope and love that we have in Jesus.
Louise Quilacio

LOUISE QUILACIO

Web/Graphic Designer

I love making connections between Jesus and the world around me. I think there are so many ways God communicates just how much He loves and cares for us in the everyday, taken-for-granted things. It’s in the way He paints the sky so new every morning, the fresh air we breathe in, and in the many lives that surround us.
Here at Cornerstone, I can only strive to mirror a fraction of God’s creativity. As a member of the Communications Team, I have a special opportunity to imagine, create, and hopefully inspire a community to see the wonders of Christ and the beautiful story God has and is weaving through this church.
When I’m not working you can usually find me on a trail, watching kdramas, or playing video games. I have a Bachelor of Design from OCAD University and am currently pursuing a Masters Degree at Tyndale Seminary.

Hannah Seto

Children's Ministry Intern

I love connecting with young people and helping them grow!
My passion in working with young people began when I worked as a pre-school teacher. It continued to grow during my time working as staff at Medeba summer camp. Here my passion in helping young people know and understand Gods power and goodness solidified, and helping young people be their best self started. So much so, that I decided to pursue my undergrad in Child and Youth Care at Ryerson University, where I am currently finishing my final year of schooling!
You’ll find me in StarKids, assisting Kerri to help equip our teachers to show your children Gods great and awesome love!

I live in Markham where I serve as a Community Partner on the Greensborough Public School Parents Council and lead the Markham-Stouffville Youth network to support other youth pastors and leaders. I’m also a member of the Canadian Youth Network because I believe God will change the lives of youth across Canada.

Bethany Nolson

BETHANY NOLSON

Outreach Director

I love people! At a very young age God began to show me that there were people that lived differently than me in the world and that I could use the gifts and resources He gave me to love others. Over the years I have felt God’s heartbeat for justice through fundraising projects, community outreach, global service trips, and summer camp. I have developed a passion to educate, empower, and invite others to experience the joys of joining God’s fight against injustice in this world!
I love Cornerstone’s beautiful heart for our community! I love connecting with and empowering our church family to extend Jesus’s love to others and seeing people encounter God by getting out into the world, meeting people, and loving and serving our community. I am thrilled to be able to connect with our community to create powerful and caring outreach ministries to serve our neighbours. My role includes overseeing our local and global outreach, working with the amazing outreach teams at Cornerstone, and building our partnerships with organizations.
I am a big fan of crazy adventures, visiting new places and people, and long hikes with my dog. I have lived in Markham my whole life and joined the Cornerstone team in 2021.

JORDAN BOKMA

Videographer and Producer

My work at Cornerstone revolves around video productions and editing, but I have a keen interest in spiritual formation, the global mission field, and, of course, how that can translate to the digital realm.
Grateful to be part of a space that centres Jesus at its core, I want to embrace the hope that is in Christ, and share the same hope with others.
My wife, Kendra, and I live in Mississauga, and we enjoy the odd bike ride, hanging out with friends, and deep chats. We’d like to get to know you!
