Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

For every teen we meet, we hope to create safe spaces, in our relationships, through online engagements,
at our facility and through serving in the community where we can grow toward Jesus together.  

We believe student ministry at Cornerstone is a safe place to battle through life ( struggle, question, or experience); 
get equipped for what comes next; and be strengthened in your spiritual walk with Christ.

Looking to Connect?



On Wednesdays from 6:30p.m. to 8:00 p.m.,  we meet in-person in The Alley at Cornerstone. The Alley is your space to encounter Jesus with other teens.
Over the next eight weeks we discussing  life's most important questions. Questions like, "When does my life begin?",  "What is the importance of God in my life", and "What meaning does my life bring?".  


For those not able to join in person, you are invited  to join us online Thursdays from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We use Zoom as our primary platform for online discussions. We will wrestle through the same questions as our in person meetings.
We also connect online to play  JackBox games and hang out with each other.

(In your community)

Once a month, for those who are able, we get together to do good in our community.
This month we are serving the Cornerstone family by helping out during the Cornerstone Candyland.
October Service Project Time:

Meet Christian

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Hello, I am Christian Schnurpel, I was born and raised in Anaheim, California and lived there for 17 years. I have three younger sisters; Amber, Jasmine, and Crystal. With some many of us my parents never knew a dull moment. After graduating high-school in 2012, I moved to Pensacola, Florida to start college and hopefully a brand new life. Though I grew up in a Christian house, it wasn't until college until I really pursued Christ and a relationship with Him. While at Pensacola I was able to connect with an incredible group of friends that not only kept me accountable, but also strengthened me and help me connect with my very first ministry. We had started a skateboard ministry to try and reach out to the youth in the community, have a meal with them and share the truth of Christ and what His sacrifice means for our life. 
After my first year in Florida, I was given the opportunity back to my home town where God opened doors for me to work with my old church ,Magnolia Baptist Church, as a youth leader. I had an amazing time with skateboard ministries, community outreach projects and even the opportunity to teach at youth group every few months. As my 3rd year was coming to a close God provided an exciting new opportunity to be a full-time missionary, with an organization called Pais, doing inner-city ministry in Texas. With my commitment with Pais was coming  to an end, I reached out to my old friend Jeremy Bratcher who told me about an opportunity that he thought would be great for me in Crystal, Minnesota. I am currently the Director of Student Ministry at Cornerstone Church Crystal, while also pursuing a Masters degree through Sioux Falls Seminary
