Our Mission

Our mission is to reach people, make disciples and build relationships. At Cornerstone Community Church, we place a high emphasis on helping you and your family connect with God and others.

Our Leadership

Cornerstone is led by our lead pastor, a strategic leadership team and our pastors and directors. If you’re looking for someone to blame, you’ve found the right spot.

Andy Deane

Lead Pastor

I’m a New Jersey native (with no accent remaining) that graduated from New York University. It was there, on September 11th, 2001, that I found myself at the bottom of the collapsing Twin Towers in NYC asking God to save my life. That’s obviously a longer story, which I tell here. Most importantly, I am a disciple of Jesus, husband to Shannon, and father to Abigail, Gideon & Titus. Least importantly, I enjoy playing basketball, watching USA curling, eating hot wings and smoking meat on my Traeger.

In 2012 my family and I moved to California so I could serve as the director of Calvary Chapel Bible College. My love for the Scriptures overflowed into a book I wrote titled, Learn to Study the Bible. In 2015 I completed a Master of Arts in Theological Studies at Veritas International University and in 2021 I completed a Master of Divinity at Southern Seminary. I joined the team at Cornerstone in 2020 and was blessed to become the Lead Pastor on the church’s 30th anniversary in 2022.

Our family lives in Murrieta right near In-N-Out (that’s kind of why we bought that house) and we would love to get to know you more. In fact, everyone who attends Cornerstone is invited over to our house for lunch! You can schedule a time to eat with us by clicking here. If you have a question about the church, a sermon I just preached, or the Bible, text me directly at (951) 708-1748.
