Board of Advisors

Serving our leaders towards a stronger tomorrow.

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors, there is safety. Proverbs 11:14

The Board of Advisors is comprised of individuals who are leaders within the marketplace as well as within their communities. Each member brings with them a unique perspective that collectively serves Pastors Phil and Meredith in leading Cornerstone Church forward.


It is the heart of our leadership to have accountability and counsel surrounding them. The purpose of the Board is to also serve you as a church member. If you have questions or concerns that you would like to address but are unsure as to who you should speak to, we ask that you contact our Board of Advisors. All emails will be sent directly to the Board and will be confidential. To contact them please fill out the form below, or email them directly at board@cornerstone.church.
