Bishop’s Letter In Regard To Corona Virus

Bishop Mike Ainsworth-Important Announcement Letter Corona-19

Request From Bishop Mike Ainsworth - March 17, 2020

To All Ministers and Members of the Cornerstone Conference family.

I bring you greetings in the powerful name of Jesus! As we respond with faith and love to serve our congregations and communities, please know that I am praying for you! We are here for you during this time. I hope you will take a moment and read my article below entitled, “Pastors As Shepherds In A Crisis.”

Also, I would like to make a clear and concise request for all Pastors and Local Church Administrative Councils:

For the safety and well being of all our congregations, members, staff and employees, we are asking every Pastor to take the following steps.

I urge all Cornerstone Conference IPHC congregations of any size to immediately postpone all in-person services and events for the next 15 days.

I encourage you to pursue other avenues of ministry including online services, congregational care and community outreach. This request is in keeping with the announced plan of our President to Slow The Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) over the next 15 days.

I believe this is an unprecedented opportunity for each of us to BE THE CHURCH, as salt and light to bring hope and the gospel message to our communities and the world!

Please review the resources and articles below to assist the local church in developing a ministry plan. You can reach us at our offices by calling 336-656-7936. You can reach me at

Our wonderful staff are here and ready to assist and serve you during this time!

Grace and Peace,

Bishop Mike Ainsworth
Cornerstone Conference IPHC
