Billy Haines

Pastor Billy grew up in the small town of Milford, Delaware. In 1999, he heard the Gospel for the first time at a youth retreat. It was at the closing ceremonies for this retreat that he also met his future wife, Laura. (It was a great weekend!)

Six months later he was a freshman at the University of Delaware where he got involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and also found a great church—Cornerstone! He was drawn to the church primarily because of the convicting, practical preaching and the vibrant community.

After graduating college, he married his college sweet heart and became an eighth grade science teacher at a local public school. During this time he and Laura served as youth group volunteers at Cornerstone. Through experiences like this, he began to sense the Lord’s calling into vocational ministry and in response, enrolled as a part-time student at Westminster Seminary to prepare for whatever the Lord had in store. In 2007 he enrolled full-time at Biblical Theological Seminary and became a campus pastor with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Delaware. He graduated seminary with an MDiv in 2010 and was ordained in the PCA in 2014.

Billy and Laura have three children and live in Newark, Delaware.
