Cornerstone anglican church
Cornerstone Valpo is a congregation of Cornerstone Anglican Church, which is a parish of multiple congregations that worship in different locations, at different times and with different location pastors. Cornerstone is a parish of the Greenhouse Movement and is committed to the expansion of the Kingdom of God. We do this especially through the raising up of new congregations.
The Greenhouse movement
The Greenhouse Movement is a mission society in the Anglican Church in North America. It also goes by the name of the Society of St. Paul the Evangelist. Greenhouse follows the Holy Spirit for the spontaneous expansion of God’s Church, with a heart to bring Christ’s healing good news to all peoples and all communities. Greenhouse does this by planting churches, developing and raising new leaders, and sponsoring movements of the gospel.
Cornerstone Valpo is part of the Cornerstone parish, which is in the Greenhouse deanery (subjurisdiction) of our diocese (see below). The Missioner General of the Greenhouse Movement is William Beasley. He is also the rector of the Cornerstone Anglican parish.
The anglican Diocese of the upper Midwest
Our congregation is part of a larger grouping of churches in the nearby states. This larger grouping is called a diocese, overseen by Bishop Stewart Ruch III. The subjurisdictions (sub-groupings) of churches are called deaneries, and our deanery is the Greenhouse Movement.
