Corrie has been a part of the church staff since 2016 and part of the preschool staff since 2017. Because of her experience in office management, she is well suited to manage the church’s needs. She and her husband Ben, of nearly 30 years, have 3 grown boys. When you meet her you will be greeted with a huge smile, a readiness to lend you a hand, and possibly an “arm-twisting” to go crafting with her. Corrie is currently enrolled in school to obtain her Associates of Applied Science in Early Childhood Administration and Management, with a Certificate of Completion in Child and Family Organizations Management and Administration.
