Elders, Deacons & Trustees


The ministry of the Elders is one of spiritual oversight. 

The Elders function primarily as discerners and guardians of the church, committed to the congregation's spiritual welfare. They are not expected to oversee specific projects or ministry areas in their capacity as Elders. They function as overseers for the entire organization. The Elders evaluate the effectiveness and direction of the organization according to Cornerstone’s mission, resources, and doctrine. When the Elders meet as a decision-making body, they are called Session, which will consist of nine to ten, Ruling Elders and the Pastors (Teaching Elders).  The congregation elects ruling Elders to a three-year term.

The ministry of the Trustees is one of provision. 

The Trustees enable others' ministry by providing three important “tools” for ministry: finances, facilities (building & property), and legal affairs. Members of the Board of Trustees normally, but not always, possess experience in one of the following areas: business, accounting, construction, facility management, human resources, investments, money management, or law. The congregation elects trustees to a three-year term. The Trustees are accountable to the Elders.

The ministry of the Deacons is one of sympathy and service. 

The Deacons visit the sick, provide financial assistance to people in need, prepare the Lord’s Supper for worship services, host funeral luncheons, and generally provide ministries of help and compassion. The congregation elects deacons to a three-year term. The Deacons are accountable to the Elders.
