WE LOVE WHERE WE LIVE

Michael Watkins

Michael has a passion to see church leaders energized and mobilized to reach the unchurched. He has given his life to the mission of the local church and has a vision to see church leaders equipped with the tools needed to create a culture for the unchurched to grow in their new life in Christ. Michael and his wife, Toni, serve as Executive Pastors at Cornerstone Church in Tupelo. They have two children, Adah and Azariah. Michael’s love language is food and he depends daily on Christ and coffee.

Jay Bonner

Jay has been in Next Generation ministry for over 12 years now. His heart has always been for the next generation and leaving a legacy for our kids/teens in which they discover their God given purpose and are empowered to walk it out. His wife of 15 years, Alicia, and two kids, Lewis and Connelly, currently serve as U.S. Missionaries to orphans right here in our own backyards. They work to inspire and create opportunities for churches and business faith communities to offer hope to the nearly half a million kids in the foster care system in the United States today. Their dream is to make sure every kid is known and part of a community who cares about them and will provide the support they need to succeed. They know God has dreams for these orphans and a purpose for their lives. The mission is to help find that person, that church, that community that will be the catalyst that changes the course of their future forever.
