Youth Pastor

Pastor DeBoef and familyI am Pastor Dustin DeBoef, and together with my wonderful wife Dawn, we are truly blessed to lead the youth here at Cornerstone. We have two children, Dinah and Dawson. For the last 12 years, we have been serving as full-time missionaries to the Philippines. Through God’s wonderful work we were able to start The Legacy Home Orphanage and Calvary Church of Barayong. At the end of 2019 we came to the states on an itineration tour that was supposed to last 9 months. Little did we know that God had other things in store. Through God’s grace we were given the opportunity to serve here at Cornerstone in 2021.

Dawn and I recognize that the youth of today are under attack by the enemy. They face struggles that we would not have even imagined when we were their ages. There has never been a more important time to pour into our youth; to be there for them, and to face the challenges of the day together. Our church for tomorrow depends on our youth building a strong foundation and relationship with Christ today.
