Cornerstone Christian Church (Eau Claire, WI) is seeking to hire a full-time youth minister. Cornerstone has been in existence for 75 years and the Lead Minister has been with the church for 11 years. Our congregation is currently averaging around 70 in attendance and growing. Three years ago we worked with The Unstuck Group to facilitate the effectiveness, health, and numerical growth of our congregation. The fruit of this coaching was the development of a Discipleship Pathway, updates to the sanctuary, and Cornerstone Fun Fest (a carnival that is free to the community). The church is blocks away from Chippewa Valley Technical College and the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire.
Cornerstone’s mission is to make disciples who make disciples. Our vision is to accomplish this through gathering together in worship, growing in transformational relationships, and going on mission through service and evangelism.
