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.
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.
I received my M.Div. in Youth and Family Ministries from Tyndale Theological Seminary. I’ve loved being a Youth Pastor since 2000 and hope its where God keeps me serving!
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.
Since I helped in my parents’ take-out restaurant from a young age, you could say that food is in my blood. As a maximizer, I continually develop my passion for baking and since serving in Open Table Thursdays, I’ve gained a new love of cooking!
I’ve been a part of Cornerstone since the beginning. In 2004 however, God put a desire on my heart to serve an unreached people group in Asia. I hesitantly left my job in Health Information consulting and went to build relationship bridges among those who didn’t know Jesus. In spite of a successful bakery business overseas, God called me back to Canada and Cornerstone in 2016.
I have a heart for guiding people into real-time transformational encounters with Jesus - in congregational, small group or one-on-one settings. I help people learn how to embody the commands of Jesus and put them into daily practice. I also supervise the Ministerial Staff, oversee Cornerstone’s discipleship process, and strategic ministry planning. You’ll often see me preaching and teaching.
Intercultural ministry, creative biblical communication, spiritual direction, and Central American missions are my passions. I received a D.Min. in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from Trinity Western University. I live here in Markham with my wife, Jan, and our three children.
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.
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.
As part of my role, I provide administrative support for our Executive Team and up-to-date communication for our Cornerstone family through weekly e-news and worship folders.
This might seem like an odd combination .... but it seems to work! Dorothy started her career as a lawyer but after hearing God's undeniable call on her life, she joined Cornerstone's team in 2011. She thrives on activating teams to spearhead community outreach initiatives or to create welcoming environments where people can experience Jesus' love -- no strings attached.
Dorothy is married with two children. Living in one of Canada’s most diverse cities, she enjoys exploring different ethnic foods and experiences.
I am humbled and honoured that I get to lead and inspire the worship team to use and hone their gifts to lead others in worship. We have a fabulous group of talented people serving in the Worship Ministry!
I also enjoy writing and performing music outside of the church at local venues and events. I live in Stouffville with my husband and two kids.
Before working at Cornerstone, I had worked and volunteered in various accounting roles. I grew up in downtown Toronto and graduated from York University.
I live in Markham with my husband, Peter, and our four children, Rachel, Rebecca (Becky), Ruth and Reuben. Our household represents three countries of origin as we’ve lived (and multiplied) in New Jersey, British Columbia and New Zealand.
I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Arts and have worked as a Sign Artist since graduating. I enjoy hiking and the creative arts.
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.
And I want to share how God is changing lives here at Cornerstone! I’m passionate about God’s mission and am a strong believer in the power of prayer – and as Communications Director, I want to share these passions with everyone.
Utilizing my strategic and achiever strengths, my role is to help set the direction and lead the strategic implementation of all of Cornerstone’s internal, external and digital communications. I want you to know everything that’s happening here at Cornerstone so you can be involved.
I live in Stouffville with my wife, Diana, and our two children Becky and Matt and volunteer helping the homeless and the working poor in the GTA.
I’ve seen marketing strategies from many angles: as the owner/operator of a local franchise, working with a multi-national non-profit organization and as a freelancer. I’m an active student of this ever-changing realm, but believe that prayer is the true ‘secret weapon’ of any great strategy. I focus on developing content and social media marketing strategies that’ll grow Cornerstone’s ability to reach and engage with our community.
My husband, Laurie, and I have two grown children, two daughters-in-law and a grandbaby.
