Michael and Kathi Pitts are the founding pastors of Cornerstone Church in Toledo, Ohio and oversee the Cornerstone Global Network of churches and leaders.
The young couple married in 1984 with a passion to see God’s Kingdom established. For a little over a year they commuted from Lima to Toledo to hold weekly services. Then, in 1986 they founded Cornerstone Church with a $1000 gift from their parents, a Bible, and the desire to see God build a church where people from all backgrounds could gather together and experience the redemptive love of God. That same early passion that ignited their journey continues to fuel it forward today.
Bishop Pitts apostolic ministry can be most noted by his fervor for Kingdom order and on-time revelation. His unique preaching style has gained him access to Churches around the world. These countries include: countries such as: New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Mexico and England. Michael has authored over a dozen books.
Pastor Kathi is most widely celebrated for her heart to see strong families and marriages. Her principled optimism makes her classes, teachings and book (Being Pregnant Was The Easy Part) both practical and inspiring. Kathi also has a deep commitment to seeing women live out their God-given purpose. As the director of Inspired at Cornerstone Church, Kathi encourages women of all ages to use their voice and their hands to change the world around them.
