Cory and Jessica have been married about six years. She is an elementary school teacher; although, she chose to stay at home to take care of Maddox last school year and hopes to do the same for part or all of the upcoming year. While we are presenting Cory as our recommendation to be the next Minister to Students, ministry is definitely a calling he shares with Jessica and something that they “do” together. Maddox is full of smiles, beginning to walk, and along for the ride.
Cory currently serves as a full-time Youth Minister and Associate Pastor of a church in Arkansas and has served there since January 2016. Cory has been very involved in the school system, even serving as the team chaplain for the high school football team (with the blessing of the coaches). Prior to serving at his current church, Cory served in two different part-time youth ministry positions in Texas and Arkansas. Leading up to his time in youth ministry, Cory served a six month internship with the International Mission Board as part of the “Hands On” program in China.
Cory completed a Bachelor of Christian Studies from Ouachita Baptist University in December 2013, and he is currently pursuing his Masters of Arts in Christian Education through B.H. Carroll Theological Institute, which he expects to complete during the next academic year.
