Who We Are

Meet Our Leadership

PHIL & MEREDITH RYBURN | LEAD PASTORS


Phil and Meredith Ryburn serve as the Lead Pastors at Cornerstone Church. After spending a decade in various roles, they were installed as Lead Pastors in October 2019. 


The couple met in Sydney, Australia, where Phil grew up, and where both attended Bible College. Then in 2012, they married in Hawaii - chosen for its beautiful beaches, and strategic proximity to both sets of families. 


Phil and Meredith believe they have been created to serve and are committed to continual improvement. Their marriage is full of laughter, purpose, and a relentless pursuit of Biblical Justice. 


Together they are raising their children in Northwest Ohio. Family time involves being outdoors as much as is possible as they explore the Metroparks, savoring the region’s growing cafe culture, and enjoying the adventure of where God leads each day.
