Pastor Chris Yager and Family
It was June of 1984 that Pastor Chris received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Growing up in a Christian home, he was faithfully taught the Word of God. Just before his sixteenth birthday, Pastor Chris felt God’s call upon his life for full time ministry. After much prayer, he surrendered to preach in August of 1991 here at Cornerstone Baptist.
To further his training in the Word of God, he enrolled in Pensacola Christian College. While in College, Pastor Chris was active interning in a local church in Cantonment Florida, as well as doing a summer internship Immanuel Baptist of Corunna, MI. Upon graduation from PCC with Bachelors in Bible and Minor in Greek, he then served as youth pastor of Immanuel of Corunna for four years.
In 2000, Pastor Chris felt the Lord’s leadership to plant a church in the Albany, NY area. In 2001, Heritage Baptist Church was born. By God’s grace, Heritage grew into a successful and dynamic church, but the Lord would see fit to make a great change in Pastor Chris’ life.
In 2010, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Pastor Chris’ childhood church, called him home to be their Senior Pastor. God has richly blessed that decision by doing a great work in his life, as well as in the life of the church. The Lord has given Pastor Chris a great vision for Cornerstone, and we would love for you to come and participate in that with us!
