JOSHUA N. RAGER
Pastor Joshua N. Rager came to candidate at Cornerstone on Sunday, February 10, 2013. After a congregational vote, we called him to be our Senior Pastor. He began his ministry work with us after moving from Muskegon to Auburn, Michigan on April 1, 2013. His Installation Service took place on July 21 with many friends and family present.
Pastor Rager earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornerstone University and a Masters of Divinity from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He did an Internship at Shelby Road Baptist Church in Shelby, Michigan the summer of 2000. He was the Director of Youth and Christian Education at Belmont Baptist Church in Belmont, Michigan, for three years. Before coming to us, he was the Senior Pastor at Cloverville Baptist Church in Fruitport, Michigan for almost 10 years. He was also ordained at Cloverville on October 29, 2006.
Pastor Rager was saved at the age of 5 and baptized when he was 12. He married, Leillani, on May 24, 1997. Together, they have three beautiful children: Matthew, Julia, and Tabitha. They are all adjusting well to life on this side of the state and have many plans to further the work of Christ’s Kingdom. How truly blessed we are to have this family worshipping with us. We give thanks and praise to our Savior for this man of God whom He has brought to shepherd us!
