Steve Madsen

Lead Pastor

Steve and Brenda Madsen live in Livermore, CA and are the founders and leaders of Cornerstone Fellowship.
Steve was born in Colorado and grew up as a pastor’s kid.
Cornerstone was launched in the Madsen’s living room in September of 1992.

Brenda influences our Church to stay close to Jesus. She is usually seen interacting with a couple of younger women. She makes the Madsen family her #1 priority.

Steve is best known for his straightforward method of Biblical teaching, combining truth, humor and practical application of ancient texts in a way that is easy to understand. He is the author of the book, “Ask-a new way of praying”.

Steve’s second passion, after Cornerstone’s ministry in the East Bay, is in resourcing and training church leaders in developing countries to care for their congregations. Steve travels each year to the locations where he can help the most. He is always encouraging Cornerstoners to greater generosity, especially among the poorest of the poor.

Steve & Brenda have 3 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, and 4 grandkids.
