Brandon & Makayla Sandy
The youth ministry at Cornerstone is called Torch. The mission of Torch is to give students the fuel they need to keep moving towards God, thus youth services and events are called Fuel. Torch students meet for Fuel Prayer once a month on Friday at 7 p.m. Fuel Youth Services and other activities are also held on Fridays, as scheduled. Once a month Fuel Split-Sessions are taught on the 2nd Wednesday night. Girls are taught by our First Lady, Beth Dillon and the boys are taught by Youth Pastor Brandon Sandy. Torch students also participate in the yearly district events such as youth convention, camps, and rallies, as well as attend the bi-annual North American Youth Congress sponsored by the Student Ministry of the United Pentecostal Church International.
Brandon and Makayla Sandy were actively involved in the Cornerstone youth group as students themselves, then became a part of the youth committee, before stepping up to become the youth pastor. We are thankful for their dedication, and their willingness to answer the call to serve.
