Cory has been a part of Mountain View’s congregation since his early childhood. He came to know Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of eight while attending a Vacation Bible School here at Mountain View Baptist Church. He surrendered to God’s calling to preach the gospel at 18 years old on a youth group mission trip to New York City in the summer of 1998. Cory attended Liberty University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion with a concentration in Biblical Studies.

During his time at Liberty, Cory began to travel across the country with several different student focused evangelistic organizations. After his graduation in 2002, Cory started a ministry called Commission 342 and continued to travel across the US preaching the gospel. Cory received his Master of Divinity in Pastoral Ministries from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, VA and he is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry in Expository Preaching from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Cory married his wife, Jennifer, in July of 2009, and they have two daughters named Aubry and Ansley and a son, Pate.
