Diana DiPrimo

Diana DiPrimo is a full-time employee at SUNY POLY, a wife to Edward, mother to Alyssa and Jessica, and an integral part of both Cornerstone Church and the Oneida Square project. For close to a decade, Diana has been the church administrator.

Although Diana does complete traditional administrative duties, calling her an administrator does not do her justice. Diana is so much more to Cornerstone and the Oneida Square Project, diving in and giving her all whenever and wherever she can be of help. For her, working part time for the church has been the fulfillment of a God given desire to be in ministry.

Having grown up in a Christian home, Diana accepted Jesus as her Savior as a young child. When she was a high school student, Diana’s parents divorced, and her need to rely on the Lord became more apparent than ever. Along with the heartache of her parents divorcing, Diana was faced with the lack of grace displayed by her church.   For Diana this experience was both painful and meaningful. She did not allow their difficult experience to define their view of God. Diana, attended Nyack College where she took classes in Elementary Education and then majored in Bible. After graduating in 1988, Diana remained at Nyack where she worked for two years. In 1990 Diana was introduced to her husband, Edward, and they went on a blind date on Easter weekend of 1995 and were married by September that same year.

In 2002 Diana and her husband visited Cornerstone and have been a part of the church since that time. Diana went from church attendee and helping with the children’s ministry, to being Pastor Mike’s assistant, and then eventually to being the Cornerstone and Oneida Square Project administrator. Diana does everything from accounting and bookkeeping to founding, planning, and executing the church’s signature annual event, the Black Friday Sale.

Diana has been inspired by Ephesians 2:8-10 which says “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” And as for the grace she did not see given to her family growing up, Diana extends it to all she comes in contact with.
