Our Staff

Meet the Cornerstone staff!
Please reach out to anyone one of us so that we can
meet you and find ways to get you connected.


Bruce has been the lead pastor for 15 years, but started attending 38 years ago when he was a mere child at APU. There he earned a BA in art and entered a career in Graphic Design. Years later he became a traitor by attending Biola University where he received a Master’s of Divinity from Talbot Seminary. In a preaching class there he was booed for being an APU alum!

Bruce’s love for Christ has resulted in a love for teaching the Bible. His next greatest love is his wife Monica, his daughter Mika and his son-in-law Blake, his son Tyler and his daughter-in-law Taylor.

In his “free time” you can find him hiking Marshall Canyon with Mika, riding his dirt bike up Baldy Mesa with Tyler, or cruising PCH in his Mustang with Monica (so fun).
