Meet Our leadership Team

Jake Stimpson (+Jessie)

LEAD PASTOR​

Bio
I'm Jake, and this is my wife Jessie. We've been in ministry in one form or another for the past 20 years. We love to help people know Jesus better and walk with Him in radical faith, wherever that takes them. In 2010, we left our home in suburbia to reach inner-city Milwaukee. Two years later, we moved to Romania to plant churches. And now, in our biggest challenge yet, we recently took over leading Cornerstone Church in Oconomowoc. 🙂 We've been married for 15 years and have 7 amazing kids.

Favorite Bible Verse
- Jake: Colossians 2:15 - "God disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in Jesus."
- Jessie: 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 - "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

Greg Elliott

DEACON

Bio
My name is Greg Elliott and I’ve lived in the Oconomowoc area all my life. I’ve had the privilege and honor of serving at Cornerstone for 21 years. It was 21 years ago, right here at Cornerstone, that I gave my life to Jesus and was set free from years of deep depression. Since then God has used me in ways I never even imagined. Everything from mission trips to cleaning houses to street preaching. For me there’s nothing better than to lay my life down and serve in any way I can.

Favorite Bible Verse
Mark 10:45 - “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Top 3 Books
The Bible, This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti, Jesus Freaks by DC Talk and Voice of the Martyrs

Top 3 Movies
The Shawshank Redemption, Tommy Boy, The Lord of the Rings trilogy

Superpower
Flying (Note: Greg does not really fly. We think...)
