Dr. Robert "Papa" Doorn

Ninety Year Old Robert Doorn will be making his annual visit to Cornerstone Church in Jacksonville, Florida to speak in the Sunday Morning Christmas Service on December 22, 2019.  Papa Doorn has been in full time ministry for over 70 years in various capacities (Pastor, Missionary, Administration, etc.) along with his recently departed wife, Glenyce. Together, they ministered in over 60 nations Pioneering Full Gospel churches, Bible schools, orphanages, and setting in motion Gospel works that have produced much fruit to the Glory of God.  We first met Papa & Mama Doorn in 2000 and since then have hosted them for the Christmas Sunday sermon. This year will be bitter-sweet with the passing of Mama in October, but it will be very, very special to be able to love on this worthy General of the Faith in our own humble church.  Following the service Sunday morning we will have dinner on the grounds.

I have a special Thanksgiving “THANK YOU JESUS” this year. My son Aaron and his family were on their way from Mesa Arizona to LUBBOCK Texas for the holiday. Near Ruidosa New Mexico, they hit some ice and spun 360 degrees into the median. Their car stopped just short of oncoming traffic. They were able to get back onto the highway with no damage to themselves or the car. They drove on icy roads for hours and arrived at Stephanie’s parents home safely. I cannot let this pass without expressing my deepest gratitude to the Lord for His faithful care of my family and also for the many who travelled in bad weather this Thanksgiving week.
