About Doug & Lorna….


Doug and Lorna Kessner, missionaries (sent 1986) by Northwest Missionary and Alliance Church (an evangelical, non-denominational church) located in Farmington, Michigan, are the founders of Cornerstone Ministries in Jamaica.  “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,” Matthew 28:19, challenged them to use their practical skills to share the gospel.

Doug has been a journeyman tradesman since 1962.  God has given him a burden to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and his practical skills with the tradesmen and apprentices in Jamaica.  Doug has a Masters in Ministry and a Doctorate in Theology.

Lorna has been a Registered Psychiatric Nurse since 1965.  Through counselling, teaching and other practical skills, she has been able to serve God and share the gospel.

They graduated from Christ to the World Bible Training Centre in Kingston, Jamaica after which they attended a Crossroads Discipleship Training School with Youth With a Mission in Salem, Oregon.  Doug and Lorna are both ordained ministers.
