Our Story

Hey! We are Cory and Meg and we have been married for over 7 awesome years. We've spent 6 of those years as foster parents helping over a dozen kids and their families; one of those children we have since permanently welcomed into our home. We also have a 5 year old daughter of our own and a son on the way this fall! We are all very excited to love and serve the city of Kinston through the ministry of starting a new church!

Cory spent two years as an intern at Bayside Community Church in Bradenton, FL and has been serving as the Executive Pastor at Canvas Church in Goldsboro, NC, a church he helped plant. He is also a graduate of Liberty University with a Bachelor's in Business and Christian Ministry. He is currently pursuing a Master's in Theological Studies at Liberty.
