  • Pastor Vic & Michelle Castillo

    Children's Pastors

    Since 2011, Victor and Michelle Castillo have ministered together as Children’s Pastors of Cornerstone. Though originally from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the Castillos have resided in Stephenville for many years, a community they call home. Victor graduated from Austin Master’s Commission, and met Michelle at a Chi Alpha bonfire while she was attending college at Tarleton State University. Michelle serves as the Administrator of Stephenville Christian School, of which Victor is also a member of the School Board. With a heart for discipleship and a love for Jesus, the couple is pivotal in our Vacation Bible School outreach. The Castillos love to serve the Lord together as a family along with their 2 precious daughters.

  • Cody & Chelsea Hansen

    Worship Pastors

    Cody and Chelsea Hansen have served as Worship Pastors of Cornerstone since 2013. They are both graduates of Stephenville High School, and Tarleton State University alumni. As long-time Stephenville residents, the Hansens count it as an honor to serve within the community and the very church in which they were married. Cody and Chelsea humbly view themselves as lead worshippers, rather than just worship leaders. They were married in 2004, and along with their 2 children, and have spent most of that time passionately involved in their calling of music ministry.
