Lead Pastor: Ben Friesen

Ben began his ministry at Cornerstone in September 2017. Originally from Oklahoma, he 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 showing how the Christian faith is relevant and necessary to our world.
