About your presenter: Brad Kalajainen
Brad Kalajainen is the founding and lead pastor of Cornerstone UMC in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Cornerstone began as a church plant in 1990. Cornerstone has experienced continual growth over 29 years, and is now a multisite church of three campuses in Caledonia, South Wyoming, and Heritage Hill in downtown Grand Rapids.

Approximately 2,650 people worship on one of the Cornerstone campuses every week. Cornerstone is deeply involved in helping to break the cycle of poverty in the Grand Rapids area through several community partnerships. Three area schools have been adopted by the campuses as well. Cornerstone has also established a global outreach to northern Kenya and Guatemala through child sponsorships, clean water and evangelism efforts.
Brad coaches, consults in areas of new church planting and church revitalization, leadership, growth, and multisite ministry related topics. Brad has been married to Colleen for 39 years. They have two grown children, Kaylee and Ben, one son-in-law Mitch, and a granddaughter Avery Joy.

If you sign-up for this group, make every effort to be present. This network group is not for everyone. It is for people who want to improve their leadership skills. Brad brings a wide knowledge of leadership experience as well as a proven track record of growing the church, teams, staff, volunteers, and ministry ideas that work.
The group does not have a book list intentionally. However, Brad will come prepared for each session with a focus and plan. This network group is designed for coaching and learning together as we share and talk about areas where we all need growth and development.
