The Cornerstone Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1992 for the publication and dissemination of Christian literature. The Cornerstone Foundation had its beginnings in the Cornerstone Life Action Series, which originated in the early 1980s under the direction of Dr. Harold Schmul, along with Leonard Sankey and Eddie Beaver. The Cornerstone Life Action series and Cornerstone, the Magazine for youth, circulated for several years and due to financial constraints was discontinued, at which time the Cornerstone Foundation, a non-profit organization, was founded and purchased all of the rights and privileges thereof for $10,000. This was the beginning of a multifaceted effort to meet expressed felt needs in the church community. Through the personal broken world experiences and grace restoration of Eddie Beaver, the current executive director, Cornerstone has developed specific restorative ministries which focus on the needs of Christian leadership.
