Welcome to Cornerstone Junior High!

On the surface junior high students are like cans of energy drinks. They’re bright, loud, and able to go from zero to 60 in three small sips. Yet, on the inside students are filled with excitement, curiosity…and they’re still filled with energy. At Cornerstone Junior High, we care about junior highers where they are for who they are! We want to create an environment of excitement, fun, and energy because that’s what junior highers want! Yet, most importantly we always point them to Jesus in real, relevant, and innovative ways. We hope your junior higher will be able to make new friends, learn more about Jesus, and live it all out as a junior higher!

Come Join us!

Every Sunday Morning at 10:35am in the Student Center for games,

I have this crazy love for junior high students especially when there’s this perfect combination of energy and knowing Jesus’ love! Energy and Jesus? Yeah that’s kind of me. I’ve been doing youth ministry for more than 12 years and pretend I’m super smart with a masters degree in theology from Fuller Seminary. I’m also a father (and foster father) of four: Kiley, Bella, Eddie, and Carter!
