Bio

Jeff Lash is a native Hoosier and a loyal Hoosier sports fan. As a Grand Rapids Theological Seminary graduate, Jeff returned to Cornerstone University in the summer of 2016 to take up a role at Miller Library. Prior to work at the library, Jeff spent the majority of his post-college years in pastoral ministry. He has served as a youth pastor; college and career pastor; and senior pastor in various churches across Indiana, Tennessee and Michigan.

In addition to his position at Cornerstone, Jeff also serves as an elder at Sanctuary Church in Comstock Park. He and his wife, Annie, have been married since 2006 and have two boys: Aiden and Elliott.

"I love being a part of Cornerstone because we are a community that is committed to teaching and embodying the values and virtues of the kingdom of God for all of life. It is this holistic vision of the Christian faith and discipleship that compelled me to join what was going on here. Ultimately, I love being able to walk alongside students and others as they explore their faith in Christ and discover how their story fits into the larger narrative of God's story."
