Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Cornerstone Christian Assembly is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the communities by means of home missionary activity and support, to be a modern Acts church, to enable the believers for service, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.



Rev Rodney (Barney) Deforge, Lead Pastor

Pastor Rodney or Pastor Barney, as he is more affectionately known, is primarily a teaching pastor and is dedicated to carefully unveiling the truths of scripture. He has served as Lead pastor since founding Cornerstone Christian Assembly in 2010.  His passion has always been for the lost by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs. Pastor Barney is also passionate about home missionary work and has a heart for the poor.   Pastor Barney attended Eastern Pentecostal Bible College in Peterborough and has been in full-time ministry for more than 20 years.  He and his wife, Lynnette, have three children, Rachel, Noah and Jeremiah.


Pastors Frank and Pastor Verna Trudeau, Associate Pastors

Pastors Frank and Verna have been with Cornerstone since its inception in 2010.  This husband and wife team brings wisdom and compassion to their prayer and visitation ministry and is truly a blessing to our church family.  Pastors Frank and Verna, who also head our free table ministry, have a deep abiding concern for their fellow man – and it is this love of others that has inspired their many years of ministry together.  



Pastor Lynnette Deforge, Worship & Music Pastor

The Bible tells us to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord“ and to worship God in “spirit and in truth“.  As worship leader, Pastor Lynnette`s role at Cornerstone is to ensure the church does just that.  Pastor Lynnette studied for three years at Eastern Pentecostal Bible College in Peterborough and has been in active ministry for more than 15 years.  Although music is an integral part of Pastor Lynnette`s life since she began singing for the Lord as a young child, it was not until 2010 that she has had an opportunity to regularly use the gift that God has given her.  Both Pastor Lynnette and her husband, Lead Pastor Rodney (Barney) Deforge, are excited to see the Cornerstone worship                                   team grow and mature together.


Pastor Troy and Pastor Tiffany

 Pastor Troy and Pastor Tiffany Youth and Children’s pastors

What a wonderful blessing to have these two on our team.  Originally from Nova Scotia, then moving to Alberta, this couple felt a call of God early on in their life.  Both have many years experience in both youth and children’s ministries.  They have 3 wonderful children, Owen, Oliver, and Eden, who are a rich blessing to them and their ministry.  Their gifting for youth ministry is 100% God ordained and in everything they do they seek Him!  Their heart is to see young hearts saved and lives transformed by the power of Jesus Christ.  We are so excited to see this new ministry grow and become fruitful.
