TICONDEROGA - Cornerstone Alliance Church has welcomed Charles Bolstridge as its new pastor.
Bolstridge and his wife, PJ, and their three children Charles, age 18, Jared, 16, and Rachael, 14, come to Ticonderoga from the Concord, N.H., area.
Bolstridge did his pastoral studies at Word of Life in Hungary and worked there hosting and ministering to international students. Most recently he was an assistant pastor in Pittsfield, N.H.
