Corey also has a heart for the local church and currently serves on staff at Gateway Church : Shelbyville as Worship & Creative Arts Pastor.
Corey got his start as a published songwriter when he signed as the launch artist with CentricWorship of Centricity Music Publishing.
Corey is the writer of upcoming worship anthems such as "Praise the King," "How Great," and "Nothing But The Blood," which was featured on the compilation EP, "All The Saints: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat No. 1"
Along the way, Corey has developed relationships in the worship community. He has written and recorded with many well-known songwriters such as Michael Farren (Let Is Rain), Dustin Smith (Miracles), Jennie Lee Riddle (Revelation Song), Lauren Daigle, Jared Anderson, and many others.
In 2014, he recorded his first live EP, HOW GREAT, which is available for order now.
HEART BEHIND THE MUSIC
Corey gave his life to Jesus at 15 and he quickly developed a hunger for God's Presence when he started playing worship songs at home on the family piano.
Corey's desire is to connect people to the heart and presence of God. This is where real and lasting change takes place in the heart of a human being.
Corey's heart and desire as a songwriter is to pen the kind of lyric and melody that God would use to draw people into His Presence. He is committed to serve the Church both locally and globally and to encourage worship leaders in their role to shepherd God's people in worship.
