Michael Willard
Senior Pastor
Pastor Willard grew up in a pastor’s home in northwest Illinois. He trusted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of ten, and later that year, surrendered to full-time ministry.
Upon graduating from Bible college, Pastor Willard and his wife, Stephanie, traveled to ministries challenging young people to surrender to the Lord. After three years, they settled in Pensacola, Florida where he served as a youth pastor for six years.
In January of 2016, they submitted to the Lord’s call to move on from their ministry in Pensacola. God led them to accept the call to Cornerstone where Pastor Willard was installed as the senior pastor on July 24, 2016.
Michael and Stephanie have three children: Brookelyn Faith, Evelyn Grace, and Michael Phillip.
