The Beemans have lived in the RSM/Mission Viejo area for the past 20 years. John served as the Family Life Minister at a church in La Mesa, CA. He has also served as a Senior Pastor for two other churches. Most recently he was the founding pastor of Cornerstone Christian Church in Mission Viejo, CA as well as the Senior Pastor at Stonecreek, John’s primary role is to provide transformational Scripture-based teaching every Sunday. He grew up in Mexico as a child of missionary parents. John graduated from Abilene Christian University with a B.A. and holds a Masters degree in marriage and family therapy. He has been in ministry for 27 years and has a passion to help teens own and live out their faith. John also serves as the chaplain for Saddleback Valley Christian schools in San Juan Capistrano. Although ministry keeps John pretty busy, he still finds time to weave some of his favorite past-times into the fabric of everyday life. John loves people and he enjoys good food. So, if you know of a great little place or want to grab a bite, give him a call — or better yet, meet him there!
