Helping ALL people find and live their lives in Christ... bridging ethnic, cultural, denominational and generational lines.

Simply put...wherever you're from or wherever you find yourself in life...we believe God has a specific plan and purpose for YOU...and we are PASSIONATE about helping you find success in your journey.


We purpose to be a God-honoring family base ministry embracing people from all walks of life—ethnic, cultural and denominational—and equipping them in every area of their lives—spiritual, physical, mental, social and financial. In committing ourselves to strengthening our families, the next generation will be prepared to take the baton.

Our 10 acre campus location will allow us to welcome several thousand weekly attendees to not only worship and dwell together in unity, but to provide a reservoir of resources for individuals, families and our community. Our intent is to not only be a beacon in our community, but that our light would be seen world-wide, as well. With a lay-driven approach, our combined resources will make it possible that none will suffer lack.

    As a pastor for more than 30 years, a husband of 41 years, a father of 8 and grandfather of 6…I’ve learned a little bit about life. For me, there is no higher honor than to serve along side TMBGITW…my wife Pastor Anne.  We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing families here at CFC...

    It is our passion to help all who enter our doors truly find and live their lives in Christ...bridging ethnic, cultural, denominational, and generational lines is what we call “Doing Life Together” here at CFC…it’s my prayer that you will  join us and become a part…




    I gave my heart to the Lord 36 years ago and life has never been the same!  In fact, life is not anything like I thought it would be!  Being thrust into Pastoral Ministry at the ripe age of 26 has certainly taught me a lot about God, people and myself.  Being married to Dan Berry is nothing short of a full time job ( a fun one!) but add onto that 8 children, 3 wonderful in-law kids and 5 grandchildren and  I guess you could call my life FULL!  My personal passion is creating beautiful things through the world of Interior Design and Fashion.

    I love my crazy life!  It’s filled with a great hubby (Alex), and our four young kiddos (Max, Emi, Lane, Cole).  My favorite past times are date nights with Alex, singing, and reading.  And I am so thankful for God’s grace and amazing love…allowing me to serve God and His people.




    I’m in love with God, I love His music and I’m madly in love with His son John!  I’ve been singing publically since the age of four.  Teaching and leading church choirs, community choirs and regional choirs.  I’ve worked with soloist, duets, trios and quartets.    It’s been a privilege to lead them all and to ultimately serve as Minister of Music here at Cornerstone Family Church.  John and I have 4 children, and 2 grandchildren.  God, my family and His music have been my life’s priority.


    Student ministry


    My desire is to see students saved and spiritually alive. Then I would like them trained coming to the knowledge of the Truth.  And I believe this truth is Jesus.  Jesus himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).  As a result, I am committed to producing “Students Alive Following Jesus”!  LETS GO!!

    At the age of 16 I responded to an invitation that “God has a plan for your life” receiving Jesus Christ that night began my walk with Him. I continue to live that invitation today, loving Him and doing life together with my bride Marcia. I have a passion for creating art that honors God and a desire to be part of the CFC team that creates an environment where we can live, love and laugh together fulfilling God’s call on our life.

    Nursery director


    My husband Josh and I became members of CFC and were married by Pastor Dan in 2006. We have two young boys now and I truly believe my most significant calling as a parent is to teach my children about the love of Jesus and how to love one another. I am incredibly blessed to oversee the Nursery Ministry  and help facilitate this most important teaching, both to the precious little ones in our care as well as their parents experiencing God in the sanctuary, knowing their children are well-loved in their classroom.
