Corey is responsible for the operations of the church. He has been at Fourth since 1991, holding the positions of Junior High Director, Senior High Director and Director of Adult Education, before serving as Pastor of Youth for 10 years.

A Bethesda native, Corey grew up in the Wood Acres neighborhood, graduated from Walt Whitman High School, and came to know Christ through Fourth’s high school ministry on a winter retreat in 1986. He has a degree in economics from Amherst College. While working in ministry at Fourth Church, he continued his education, receiving a Master of Divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2002.

Corey is the one who wears a gray robe on Sunday mornings and whose office is just off the main office. He and his wife, Karen, have three children.
