Cory is featured on Bethel Music’s Have it All album with his song “Son of God”, as well numerous IHOP-KC compilation albums.
Cory was raised in the mountains of North Carolina, where he developed a deep love for music and songwriting. He started leading worship at age fourteen, and progressed into full-time worship ministry at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City by 2005. In addition to countless worship sets spent in the prayer room, Cory’s 8-year journey at IHOP-KC took him throughout the US and abroad for worship gatherings. He continues to lead worship regionally and internationally.
Cory is passionate about people encountering the love of the Father. His worship leading creates an atmosphere filled with the power and peace of God. His prophetic worship style is marked by spontaneous moments of tenderness in God’s presence. In December of 2016, Cory and his family transitioned to Kalamazoo, Michigan to join Radiant Church where Cory now serves as Worship Pastor. Cory is married to his wife, Anna, who also shares a gift for music and prophetic worship. They have three beautiful children, Gabriel, Lily, and River.
