Daniel Yee –

 

Senior Pastor

1975 was an amazing time of personal and spiritual growth.  As part of God’s plan, Danny and Debbie (his fiancée) were part of the founding members of fast growing Cornerstone Evangelical Baptist Church in San Francisco.  Three years later, he responded to a calling from the Lord to leave his finance and accounting job and dedicated himself to full-time ministry as Church Administrator and Youth Pastor.  Danny never turned back and in 1988, he was ordained as a minister.

In addition to these official roles, he also led the youth and college departments since the inception of CEBC – a responsibility he had for the next 25 years.  As the youth membership in the church blossomed and these young people matured into adults, many of them desired to expand God’s ministry.  Through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in his life, along with the blessings from CEBC leadership, he ventured out with a group to start Cornerstone Trinity Baptist Church in 2001.

His lifelong ministry has been focused on two major areas:

Discipling and nurturing young and mature Christians by emphasizing four core foundations for growth, namely, Worship, Sunday School, Fellowship and Ministry (The “Four Corners of Cornerstone”)

Encouraging Christian believers to boldly reach out to family and friends to share the message of God’s love and salvation.

He and his wife, Debbie, have been married for over 38 years and have devoted their lives to serving their fellow church members as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Kevin Wong –

 

Associate Pastor

Kevin came to faith in high school after talking with a youth leader and seeing himself in the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15.  Starting in lay youth ministry in 1999, he served two “tours” with a high school fellowship group.  In the summer of 2005, Kevin discovered his deep burden for God’s people and strong desire to teach others God’s Word.  Following God’s calling, a year later, Kevin quit his job and pursued pastoral ministry.  He was licensed as a Youth Pastor in 2007, and in 2014, Kevin graduated from Golden Gate Baptist Seminary.  His passion is teaching the Bible, serving with people, and having spiritual conversations.  He is happily married to Vivian, and they have two daughters and one son.
