Reverend Cory Britt (click here for blog)
Cory Britt’s passion is to discover what it means to live the abundant life Jesus has called us to live and to share the source of that life with all he can. He has found that the depth of our life is formed through the faith we develop with Jesus, the relationships we cultivate with those in our family and community, and how we practice our faith in daily living.
Cory is happily married to his wife Amanda. They are the proud parents of their daughter Sydney who keeps them entertained and also takes care of the dogs, rabbits and goldfish. Aside from his love of family, he is also an avid reader, a musician, and loves hiking in the mountains.
