Senior Pastor: Rev. Billy Haines
Pastor Billy grew up in the small town of Milford, Delaware. In 1999, he heard the Gospel for the first time at a youth retreat. It was at the closing ceremonies for this retreat that he also met his future wife, Laura. (It was a great weekend!)
Six months later he was a freshman at the University of Delaware where he got involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and also found a great church—Cornerstone! He was drawn to the church primarily because of the convicting, practical preaching and the vibrant community.
After graduating college, he married his college sweet heart and became an eighth grade science teacher at a local public school. During this time he and Laura served as youth group volunteers at Cornerstone. Through experiences like this, he began to sense the Lord’s calling into vocational ministry and in response, enrolled as a part-time student at Westminster Seminary to prepare for whatever the Lord had in store. In 2007 he enrolled full-time at Biblical Theological Seminary and became a campus pastor with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Delaware. He graduated seminary with an MDiv in 2010 and was ordained in the PCA in 2014.
Billy and Laura have three children and live in Newark, Delaware.

Tim married up, to the incredible Julie Dallwig, and they have four amazing, beautiful and sometimes silly daughters. Tim also has a MA degree from Westminster Seminary in Biblical Counseling. He enjoys working with the teens and people at Cornerstone, struggling together to love God and love others!
Administrative Assistant: Joy Evans
I have been attending Cornerstone since the early days when the Church was held in the school room in Kemblesville and then at “The Barn”. Both my husband, Ed, and I became members in March of 2005. I started working at Cornerstone 3 days a week as an Administrative Assistant in February 2010. I love working here and could not ask for a better staff to work with and to interact with the many people of Cornerstone which is very uplifting, as well as serving in several ministries.
My first love is for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, which grows with each passing year, and I pray that He will continue to grow me stronger – in my faith and in my love for Him. The loves of my life on earth are my family: my husband Ed, my 2 grown children and my precious 8 grandchildren! I also heartily enjoy one ‘adopted’ granddaughter. My passionate hobby is Arabian horses, which I enjoy on a little farm in Landenberg, PA and love to teach riding, especially to children and teens. I also love music, i.e. old gospels, hymns & praise songs.
I have lived a full life by the grace of God and am thankful and grateful for all the blessings He has given me!

Children’s Ministry Coordinator: Jen Smith
Jen is fortunate to have grown up in a Christian home and cannot remember a day when she did not know Jesus. Even though she made a profession of faith at a young age, it was not until attending college at the University of Delaware, that her faith deepened and became her own. She also met her husband, Kevin, at UD. After graduation, she attended Penn State University and earned a Masters of Education in Secondary School Counseling. She worked as a guidance counselor at Kennett High School until their first child, Maddie was born. Since that point, she has been a stay at home, homeschooling mom to four wonderful children: Maddie (18), Marshall (16), Morgan (14) and Mitchell (12).
Jen and her family have been attending Cornerstone since the fall of 2013. She loves Christ’s church and ministering to the families at Cornerstone. She’s also a huge fan of all things Pittsburgh, especially the Pirates!
