THE STORY OF CORNERSTONE CHURCH
Pastor Mark Lehmann has served as the Lead Pastor of Cornerstone
Church for twenty-eight years. His heart is to build a church that looks like
and acts like Heaven. From the humble beginnings of around 100 people, the
Lord has blessed them in incredible ways, creating a diverse and outward-focused congregation representing some 75 nations. Now approximately 3000 people call Cornerstone their church home. Through God’s amazing
faithfulness, Cornerstone is becoming the body of believers He designed them to be.
The phrase “One Church Can Change the World” is a vision that the entire
Cornerstone family has embraced. That Kingdom-minded emphasis has
people from all over the region joining together to send and support more
than 300 missionaries in 110 nations. Whether it’s local outreaches, campus ministry, trafficking intervention or international feeding programs Cornerstone is engaged and committed to giving away at least 35% of its income each year.
Of course, none of this is possible without devoted prayer. Each year
Cornerstone starts the first three weeks with a time of prayer and fasting. It
sets the tone for the rest of the year. For over twenty-five years, Saturday
night prayer has been a concentrated time of worship and calling out to God
for the needs of the world. The continued growth of this ministry is impossible…without prayer.
The culture in our nation is divided by many things but Cornerstone keeps
the focus on being Christ-Centered, prayer-focused, and outreach-driven.
Moving forward they see God’s preparation for a new season of impact and
growth as local families are looking for answers and hope. Their heart is to
equip the Cornerstone family to be an “Authentic Community, Lifting up
Jesus, Growing in Him, and Touching our World”, through weekend
experiences (services), discipleship & growth groups, serving teams, and
outreaches both locally and globally.
