Mekelle Beardsley

Youth Director

Mekelle loves coffee, teenagers, and Jesus. She has been actively involved in youth ministry for the past 10 years, and has been running the entire youth program at Cornerstone for a year. Mekelle loves to build relationships and can be spotted at all kinds of middle schools, high schools, and Starbucks in Madera/Merced County. Mekelle has 5 brothers and 5 sisters, so she knows how to deal with drama! She does not like spiders, triple digit weather, or waiting in traffic. Mekelle has a huge heart for connecting students to Jesus and creating a place where they will be loved, supported, inspired, and challenged!
