Pastor & Wife.jpg

Daniel Koehn, Pastor

 The Lord Jesus has had his hand on my life from an early age.  But it has not been until just a few years ago that He led me quite unexpectedly into pastoral ministry.  I’ve had an eclectic variety of jobs in my life, from warehouse worker to grocery store stocker to professional opera singer to voice teacher to legal assistant to data entry worker to support specialist for a library science program and more.  God provided for me to get a doctorate in music from the University of Kentucky in 2013, and in addition to being a pastor, I’m currently a part-time voice teacher at Transylvania University and Eastern Kentucky University.  My wife and I are also speakers with the Francis Asbury Society.  I’m interested in origins—I like to trace things back to their beginnings in order to understand them.  I like the arts.  I’m a big fan of George MacDonald, the Scottish writer who was very influential on C.S. Lewis.  I want to follow Jesus with all my heart, and I want to help others to do that too.

Renita Koehn, Worship Pastor

Hi!  I have been the worship pastor at Cornerstone since March 2019.  Most of my career I have been a college professor teaching voice & voice related subjects.  Before coming to Cornerstone with my husband, Daniel, I taught at Asbury University, Trevecca Nazarene University, Belhaven University, and Point Loma Nazarene University.  I currently teach private voice & piano in Frankfort and online.  I also enjoyed the blessing of being a member of the Come to the Fire songwriters and worship team.  I asked Jesus to come into my heart on a Sunday morning in my home church in Maysville, KY, when I was six years old.  I wanted to belong to Jesus and He joyfully received me and gave me new birth into Him at that time.   In high school, I surrendered the controls of my life to Him at an altar at teen camp on the East Kentucky District.  Besides worshiping Jesus, making music, and teaching, I especially enjoy traveling, writing, word studies, yarn work, cooking, raising herbs, table games with friends, spending time with family, and taking walks.
