The Story of Cornerstone Fellowship
Cornerstone was established in 1983 by a group of men and women who were hungry for more of God. Our first pastor, Al Young and his wife, Virginia, served diligently for 10 years. In 1993, the Lord called Dick Metz and his wife, Jackay, to lead our church.
Since its beginning, Cornerstone has been open to the life-changing presence of God.
By studying God’s word, leaning on one another and surrendering to the Spirit of God, we are building strong families who will raise their children to honor God and serve Him. Approximately 200 believers call Cornerstone home.
Cornerstone is a part of the Gateway Church Network, a network of churches organized by Gateway Church of Southlake, Texas. Cornerstone also partners with local churches as a member of the Central Area Pastor’s Association, a diverse group of 15 churches representing several denominations.
Dick and Jackay Metz have been married for 48 years – a long time! They are blessed with 4 grown children! All 4 are married and each has 2 children. The Metzes are enjoying their empty nest, but also frequent visits from children and grandchildren! Their earnest desire is to see the Body of Christ equipped to become a vast army standing strong against the enemy. They pray often that the next generations will take the baton and finish the race well!
By far, the greatest thing God has done for Dick and Jackay was to save them together in 1974. They really were not looking for Him, but He came and got them. They will forever be thankful!
Dick and Jackay like to spend time together going out to dinner and a good movie. They enjoy the Saints, the Tigers, family and friends.
