OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM

The Leadership Team (LT) at Cornerstone is a group of congregationally-approved members who oversee the church both spiritually and operationally. It is a group made up of between 5 and 9 people that operate on year-long terms starting in August. In many other churches, the analogous leadership is structured as Elders and Deacons.


On the operational side, the LT oversees church finances, makes sure we have a place to worship, and takes care of other business matters. On the spiritual side, the LT makes sure the Pastoral Staff has accountability and are taken care of and keep a general pulse of the congregation’s health. The overall goal is to maintain Cornerstone’s health as a Christ-centered community. Who is currently on the Leadership Team? The LT currently consists of 6 members plus our Lead Pastor, Bill Johnson.

  • Ernie Park Chair

    Ernie has been attending Cornerstone for over seven years since his freshman year at MIT. He grew up in New Jersey and is a huge New York Rangers/hockey fan. Previously he has served on praise team doing vocals and has also led the welcoming team. He lives in Cambridge with his wife, Tina, who was also on Leadership Team previously, and their two dogs. They both work as software engineers in Cambridge.
