Ben Friesen joined the Cornerstone family in September 2017. Originally from Oklahoma, Ben moved to California in 2013 to pursue a seminary education and met his wife, Caitlin, at North Fresno Mennonite Brethren Church. They married in 2016 and are excited about this new adventure God has laid out for them. Ben enjoys cycling, disc golf, and watching movies (and will rarely say no to a combination of peanut butter and chocolate). Ben earned his Master of Divinity from Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary and is passionate about making the Christian faith relevant to our world.

Pastor Dave Sletten is joining Cornerstone Community Church as Interim Pastor.
Pastor Dave joined Interim Pastor Ministries in 2009 after retiring following 30 years of ministry at Valley Evangelical Free Church in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota. He chose to serve with IPM because of its vital ministry to the church in America and to churches in transition, it’s solid reputation, and the ongoing training and equipping of its pastors.
Pastor Dave has been married to his wife Cheryl for 20 years. Pastor Dave and Cheryl had both been previously widowed, and together they have 9 children, 15 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Also deserving honorable mention as a family member is their 4-year-old black lab, Gracie. Six of their nine children and their families reside in the Minneapolis area, one in Park City, UT, one in Naples, FL and one in Seattle, WA.
Pastor Dave brings his passion to “brag about Jesus” and a sincere love for people to Cornerstone Community Church. It is his goal and prayer that this time of transition will be used for the church to grow in love for Jesus and others, to share that love, to invite others to know Christ, and to practice the habit of sharing God-sightings with one another.
