Cornerstone Presbyterian

Cornerstone Presbyterian Church's mission is to make disciples who love God, love people, serve others and serve our city and beyond. They do that by following their values of being gospel centered, people focused, offering humble service to others, and committing to being a compassionate community with authentic relationships. Cornerstone also believes that effective leadership is important to be able to equip people in their spiritual gifts and talents to serve the kingdom of God. Cornerstone is located in Leawood, KS, and their property includes plenty of parking, a playground, and a prayer garden, all of which are open to the community. They are one body with two expressions of worship: traditional (9:00am) and modern (10:30am). Cornerstone has active children's, youth and young adult ministries as well as many adult Bible study and Connect groups. Their music ministry is a vibrant part of each service. Cornerstone's senior pastor is Sheldon MacGillivray, and their associate pastor is Pete Geiger.

Cornerstone is active in local missions with partners that include The Urban Farming Guys, Johnson County Family Lodge, Grace United Community Ministries, Mission Southside, Scraps KC, The Single Mom KC, Cross-Lines Community Outreach, New Hope Food Pantry, as well as other mission organizations in the area. Cornerstone also supports many global missionaries. Yearly international mission vision trips are scheduled for Thailand and Hungary. Their youth and young adult programs also participate in various mission projects and trips.

Debbie Meiser, a volunteer who works with the missions ministry, will serve as The Sending Project Liaison for Cornerstone Presbyterian Church. Debbie has been active in missions for many years. Her first foray into the missions field began with a request from her son and her church youth pastor to help with a weekly lunch for the homeless of Kansas City. Along with other volunteers, Debbie and this group fed, clothed, and counseled a small group of men and women in the West Bottoms of KC for 2 1/2 years. From there, Debbie volunteered with many other local organizations, but especially had a heart for the homeless and those on the fringe of homelessness. Debbie has also participated in several mission trips to South Africa. As missions coordinator with her previous church she was responsible for overseeing both local and global missions teams, mission finances, trip planning, and day to day communications with mission partners as well as church leadership. Debbie is currently volunteering with Cornerstone, hoping to expand their missions programs and create new opportunities for congregation involvement, both locally and globally.
