Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño
Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño has served as Cornerstone University’s 12th president since 2021. Born in Colombia, South America, Dr. Moreno-Riaño came to the United States at the age of nine with his family, where they lived in New York City. He felt the call to lifelong ministry at the age of 14 and has followed it ever since. He is a graduate of Cedarville University and the University of Cincinnati. He has been a professor and Academic Vice-President and has an abiding passion for the church and university to be partners in discipling the next generation of believers. Dr. Moreno-Riaño is the author of six books and has edited and written chapters for several others. He is happily married to his wife of 29 years, Ellen, and father to six children: Isaac, Victoria, Abraham, Emma, Abigail, and Zachariah. More than an academic, Dr. Moreno-Riaño will be speaking on ministry as the shepherding souls. We are delighted to welcome him to the Church Ministries Conference for the very first time.
