Meet Our Worship Leader Jim Richter and Wife Melinda!

Jim and Melinda have lived in Cherry Log since 2009, and have served at Cornerstone since 2016.   Jim studied classical piano starting at age 7, and he learned to play guitar when he was a teenager.  Jim chose law as a career, practicing for 35 years in the Atlanta area, and retiring in 2013.  Another

dimension of Jim is that he is a JAZZ guitarist, with four albums of his own original music. Jim and Melinda met when both attended Emory Law School. They have been married for 40 years and have two daughters and two grandchildren.  “I believe that music is the most powerful of all the arts. Serving God through music has given me more joy than I can ever express!”

Michael Cornett and his sound studio have introduced many local musicians to the joy of recording.  Michael has traveled the world, and for many years, worldliness was his trademark.  But now his trademark is Jesus, and his powerful voice, coupled with a hundred original worship songs, make him a special blessing to the Cornerstone attenders. 

Michael gives testimony to the power of God in his own life, and he has a special desire to minister redemption to those who are recovering from addiction. 

Come to Cornerstone, and enjoy a blending of traditional and contemporary praise and worship music that is aimed at connecting the heart of the believer with the heart of God.
