Dayspring Church, located at 17360 N. Dixie Highway, Bowling Green, has hired of Pastor Cornell Jordan to fill the newly-created position of Executive Pastor of Student Ministries and Missions.
Jordan will oversee all of the age-group ministries of Dayspring and the global and local mission initiatives of the church.
He attended Youngstown State University in pursuit of a pre-law degree, but switched his major to history and political science.
Before accepting the call to full-time ministry, Jordan gained valuable experience in other youth-related fields. Some of the areas in which he has worked include Residential Treatment for Youth, Juvenile Corrections, and Child Protective Services. He believes that these experiences have enabled him to minister more effectively to students and their families. His first ministry opportunity came with The Salvation Army as a youth pastor in Canton.
Lead Pastor Scott Estep says, "As a veteran in youth ministry for nearly 20 years, Cornell is known for his creative messages, unique illustrations, and infectious personality."
Jordan frequently speaks at schools, youth camps and conferences throughout the United States. In 2013, he also traveled to Madagascar and Kenya to minister and train leaders.
Through Cornell Jordan Ministries (cornelljordan.com) he will continue to regularly speak at other events and services.
Jordan met his wife, Kristin, while working as a summer camp counselor at a Salvation Army Christian Camp. They have two children, Christopher and Hallie.
The new member of the Dayspring staff and the Student Ministries leadership will hold a high-energy gathering for junior high and high school students each Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Dayspring Church.
