Cornerstone Church is led by a team of elders - men who meet the qualifications outlined in the New Testament (1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9). In order that these men may focus on the ministry of the word and prayer, we also have a team of deacons to care for the physical needs of the assembly. Our ultimate authority is the one true head of the church, the one who is to be preeminent in everything, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Robert C. Clark, Pastor
Pastor Rob came to recognize his need for Jesus as a preteen. As a teenager, he sensed a leading from the Lord to serve in pastoral ministry. While the Lord has used many influences in his preparation for ministry, his formal preparation came through Faith Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.; M.Div) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min). He has gladly served at Cornerstone Church in various capacities since the mid '90s, and has been the lead pastor since 2002. In addition to pastoral ministry, Pastor Rob also serves as a chaplain in the Rhode Island Air National Guard. His beautiful wife, Amy, has continually aided him in every aspect of life and ministry. The Lord has blessed the Clarks with five children: Alexis, Andrew, Aiden, Asa, and Addisyn.
William L. Krawczyk, Pastor Emeritus
Pastor Bill came to Cornerstone in 1985, having prepared for the ministry at the Burlington Bible Institute. When the Krawczyks arrived the attendance of the church had dwindled down to five members. The Lord used Pastor Bill to equip and edify the church to do the work of the ministry; and as a result He blessed the ministry with faithful men and women who have continued to serve the Lord both at Cornerstone and elsewhere. In February 2011, after 8 years of serving the Lord in Massachusetts, the Lord directed Pastor Bill and his wife Nancy back to Cornerstone to assist in the ministry. The Krawczyks have three grown children and nine grandchildren.
