MEET THE TEAM
Corey and his wife, Melody, have three children, Caleb, Bennett and Emmy. They cheer
for the Titans and Vols for football, but have been lifelong Kentucky basketball fans. Corey and his family enjoy being active in the community, participating in sports and music, and having
people in their home. They view their activities outside the walls of the church as opportunities to introduce others to Christ and welcome them into the church. Corey sees evangelism,
discipleship, and missions as a vital part of the church’s purpose. He received his Master of
Divinity from Southern Seminary and his Doctor of Ministry from Midwestern Seminary. Corey began serving as Lead Pastor at SFBC in 2020. He’d love the chance to meet you when you visit, or if you’d like to stop by the office! You can also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org

He came to Seymour First Baptist in January 2021. If you’re interested in getting involved in either of these areas, check out the details here on the website and contact Austin!

He earned his Master of Divinity with a concentration in pastoral care and counseling from the Gardner-Webb University School of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

You can email Tiger at email@example.com
