“[Christ] gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ... Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” Ephesians 4:11–12, 15–16

Paul explains why God gives each church pastors: they equip each and every family member for their own unique ministry. When this ministry grows, so does the church family—both in size and spiritual maturity.

The pastors at Cornerstone take their responsibility to equip very seriously. They have dedicated themselves to studying and developing various ways to equip each person. We pursue this equipping in community, in classes, in conferences, and in internships.
