Pastor Steve Olivieri:

(Jan. 6, 2012 – present)

Steve is the husband to his college sweetheart Sara & have three beautiful children. Steve has attended Cornerstone Fellowship since he was 7 years old. When Cornerstone Fellowship joined with Mill Run Mennonite church forming Cornerstone Fellowship of Mill Run, Steve signed on as a Covenant member & attended during his summer breaks from college.

In 2008 Steve & his family moved from Fairfax, Va, where he was employed as a cardiac catheterization lab specialist, back to this area to be closer to family. Steve also began in earnest to test his calling toward vocational ministry. In 2010 Steve became a licensed pastor credentialed through the Mennonite church – USA & became a co-pastor alongside Jeff Jones. After the church’s official affirmation of him, on Jan. 6, 2012 Steve took over as pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship of Mill Run.

Currently he is also the commander of Cornerstone Fellowship’s Awana Kid’s Club that was started in 2010. Steve is most known for the passion & energy he brings to the pastorate. He is also passionate about integrating the use of technology into church ministry as well. Steve loves to use powerpoint & video clips to help illustrate biblical principles during his sermons. He also launched Cornerstone’s website www.cornerstonemillrun.com & facebook page as well.

Steve though is quick to point out that technology is not a mask for bad theology & a watered down gospel. Also a computer screen should never take the place of real friendships with real people in person. Technology though when used along side of correct doctrine unapologetically rooted in God’s word, provides a dynamic way of presenting biblical truth to a technology driven world.

When Steve is not working at the church he enjoys playing with his three kids & helping out with his wife’s daycare she runs out of their home. Steve also loves all things outdoors & sports related. Steve was a varsity collegiate cross country and track & field student athlete at Geneva college. He is also an avid bowhunter & flyfisherman.
