Mike Moon

Mike accepted Christ as a young boy, about 12 years old and has been walking with the Lord for a number of years.  He has seen God at work in many aspect of his life ranging from work to family and knows that God works all things for the good even when we cannot see it right away. Mike came to Cornerstone over 15 years ago and has been involved in a multitude of ministries, everything from working with the trailer team, teaching in the kids’ ministry and middle school groups, to building houses on  mission trips.

Steve Rakoff

Steve grew up in a non-Christian home and heard the Gospel for the first time as a freshman in college. After committing his life to Christ, he was discipled by the Baptist college ministry for four years. Steve moved to Texas to go to seminary to follow a calling to work with the spiritual lives of college students. He worked with students for 23 years as a college counselor and administrator. While in Texas, Steve served in his church for 28 years in the following areas: trailer team, accounting team, leading men’s groups for 10 years, co-leading 5th and 6th grade ministry, working with the youth program, and helping develop an incorporation ministry.
Steve moved to Virginia and joined Cornerstone in 2014. Since then, he co-led the student ministry, has been a part of the Northstar program for the last year and a half, and recently serves as a greeter and usher. He continues to work with college students at NOVA as faculty sponsor of the Christian group on campus. Steve’s primary spiritual gifts are encouragement, wisdom, discernment, and hospitality. His passion is to develop people; his greatest area of growth is trusting God enough to not “play it safe” when challenging opportunities come. His favorite verse is I Corinthians 15:58 “ Therefore my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
