Corey Michael is one of the most…unique…people you may ever meet. Growing up in a Christian home, Corey went to several churches of varying denominations before finding his place in the Foursquare family. Much of his life has been creating, designing, and drawing anything he can get his hands on. This childhood passion later developed into a self-educated career in graphic design and creativity, with his own design consulting firm.
In 2010 at the age of 21, God called Corey to a life of greater things: to be a pastor. With much passion and a hunger for more of God, Corey has pursued this path to the best of his ability, seeking mentorship from the pastors of East Valley. While he doesn’t quite know just how God will use him in the future, Corey knows he is meant to love God and to love people, and to intentionally pursue Godly relationships with others.
Corey now serves as the Media/Tech Director and the Young Adults Director at East Valley Church. His hobbies include graphic design, playing badminton and sleeping.
