Photos & Bio

Karl Vaters is the author of four books.

Karl has been in pastoral ministry for 40 years. He is the teaching pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, a healthy small church in Orange County, California, where he has ministered for over 28 years with his wife, Shelley. They have three kids and two grandkids.

Karl produces resources for Helping Small Churches Thrive at His heart is to help pastors of small churches (up to 90 percent of us) find the resources to lead well, and to capitalize on the unique advantages that come with pastoring a small church – something virtually every pastor will spend at least some of their ministry years doing.

He also believes that big and small churches can and should work together more often – to the benefit and blessing of everyone.
