We also have our Freedom Revival Services June/July. All services are open to the general public and community. We invite you to join us at our next worship service:
January Dr. Martin Luther King Day Event
SERVICE: Sunday , January 15 at 6:00 pm
Rev. Dr. Donald Dunnigan
Those who know Pastor Dunnigan speak well of him. Of course, some know him as the son of Dea. Elbert and Sis. Margaret Dunnigan and/or the brother of Ronald and Kenya Dunnigan; some, as the husband of Regina Dunnigan and the father of Donald, Jr., and Reginald. Yet it is because of his work at home, in the church and in the community that he has also been described as a spiritual leader; an accomplished musician; a caring pastor; a praying partner; a patient counselor; a compassionate comforter; a loving husband; a committed father; an obedient son; and a genuine friend.
At Cornerstone he is known as the Pastor/Shepherd, a humble servant. Although Pastor Dunnigan is well known and has earned recognition and accolades for his community work and educational pursuits, the servant title means a great deal to him for he realizes that God is impressed not with worldly accomplishments but with faithfulness.
“Donald Dunnigan” became a licensed minister in 1986 at Union Baptist Church and in 1987 was ordained by the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Association and adjoining states. In 1989 he began serving as an Assistant Pastor under the guidance of the late Rev. Dr. Otis A. Herring. In May of 1992 he was the founding pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship Baptist Church.
Educated in the Wilmington Public School System and after graduating from Claymont High School, Pastor Dunnigan received a B. S. Degree in Bible in 1988 at the Philadelphia College of Bible, Department of Pastoral Studies in Langhorne, PA. In May of 2002 he earned a Master of Divinity Degree at Eastern Theological Seminary in Wynnewood, PA. In further preparation for service in God’s kingdom, Pastor Dunnigan earned his doctoral degree at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH, and he graduated in December, 2007.
In the community Pastor Dunnigan is a member and former president of the Interdenominational Minister’s Action Council (IMAC). He serves on the board of the Wilmington Police Athletic League (WPAL). He served several years as the Chaplain for the Wilmington Police Department. His wise council is sought on many personal, social, political, and spiritual issues.
In September 2004, Pastor Dunnigan and his congregation returned to their newly renovated facility at 20 W. Lea Boulevard. Pastor Dunnigan remains faithful to his calling – Pastor/Shepherd, servant. With a servant’s heart, Pastor Dunnigan yearns to forever remain a faithful servant of God and of man. Along the journey, he requests that to God be the glory for all the things God has done which have allowed him – Donald E. Dunnigan, Sr. – to become, to experience, to dream, and to accomplish. For all these things –
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
