Corey started with Crow River Youth for Christ August of 2004 as the Campus Life Director in Hutchinson. In 2007 he came under the umbrella of West Central Youth for Christ but remains in Hutchinson. He grew up in Prinsburg, Minnesota and earned his bachelor’s degree from Calvin College in 1998. He felt called to youth ministry his senior year of high school but was 30 before taking this first call in ministry. He has a heart for students that would be deemed “at risk.” He runs Campus Life programs for Senior High and Middle school students. He sees Youth for Christ’s philosophy of loving the whole person as extremely valuable in calling young people into the kingdom of God. When not on Campus or running a Campus Life event, Corey likes to hang out with his wife Nichol, and three kids Elida, Esther, and Ezra. He enjoys hunting, camping, cooking, playing games, and seeing milk come out of sixth graders noses.
