What to Expect
Visiting any church, for the very first time can be an anxiety-producing experience. Where to go? What to wear? What do I do with my kids? What can I expect? We hope to put you at ease.

We believe you will experience inspiring music, relevant preaching that helps your life, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”!
We are blessed to have an incredible speaker at Cornerstone on October 22nd!
Michael Franzese grew up as the son of the notorious Underboss of New York’s violent and feared Colombo crime family. At his most affluent, he generated an estimated $5 to $8 million per week from legal and illegal businesses. It was a life filled with power, luxury…and deadly violence. In 1986, mafia boss, Michael Franzese was named one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al Capone, by Vanity Fair. At the age of 35, Fortune Magazine listed him as number 18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”, just 5 behind John Gotti. Avoiding traditional mob domains,
Michael masterminded brilliant scams on the edge of the legitimate business world. From auto dealerships and union kickbacks, to financial services and the sports and entertainment industries, to a multi-billion dollar gasoline tax scheme, he earned millions in cash every week at his peak
While producing Knights of the City, a break dance movie filmed in Florida, Michael met a beautiful dancer from Anaheim, California, named Camille Garcia, whose innocent beauty and faith turned his world upside down. After falling in love and eventually marrying Cammy, Michael took the rap on racketeering charges. Michael pled guilty, accepted a 10 year prison sentence and vowed to do the unthinkable – walk away from the mob. Nobody of his rank had ever just walked away – and lived. Until now. Michael Franzese is the only high ranking official of a major crime family to ever walk away, without protective custodies, and survive.
Michael's compelling story of fame, prestige, love and fear has been featured throughout the country on CNN, Fox News, 48 Hours, The Today Show, ABC Primetime, and NBC Nightly News.
Michael was ranked at the 18th most influential Mob Bosses in 1986. Of these mob bosses: 44 are dead,3 are doing life without parole, and 2 are unaccounted for.
Michael is free on mission transforming lives.
Join us on October 22nd to hear Michael’s captivating story of life in the Mob and how Jesus Christ has changed his life.
