Corey is married to Betsy and we have 2 girls (Noel and Eden). They are both from around the Concord/Kannapolis area. He is a graduate of Central Cabarrus High, University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelors in Organizational Communications and Philosophy. He also has graduated from Seminary at Liberty University with his Masters in Religion.
Corey and Betsy started Mission 217 Church in 2011. The Heart of the church comes from Corey's salvation experience where a small church loved him despite being different (see story below). Without this church Mission 217 would not exist and what happened for him he wants to give to you.
Corey's favorite verse comes from Romans 4:20-21 20 No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, 21 fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. The reason why is that God has given Pastor a promise to see great and mighty things to happen in this city!
He is a fun loving person, with a true heart for people. His favorite things to do are lift weights, work with wood, going to movies, playing golf and his is a freak about Carolina Panther football.
