My life has been an incredible journey the past few years. Stepping out on faith into what seemed like nothing in the natural but a hope and a prayer, Trent and I followed the still small voice calling us out of our “comfortable” place. God took my hand, led me off of one mountaintop, and into a mountain range of discovery.
Being on the road for this season has been so enjoyable! I have made many wonderful covenant relationships along the way, connected with kingdom-minded people and ministries, and enjoyed the fulfillment of reaching people with God’s love. Through this journey thus far, the depth of my faith has been stretched, and I have experienced first hand God’s immeasurable ability to exceed my expectations in every area.
While this has all been amazing, still there has been a void in my heart. The challenge of balancing a thriving road ministry with the demands of the Cory household has been a trip! When to leave the kids, when to take the kids, and in general how to make it all happen! Life is all about finding balance no matter what your hands find to do. The greater question has been whether I’m home with them or not, are we planted in the right place?! A place where I feel I’m being effectively used, and where my kids are being nourished.
Although I treasure the ministry time I have with Trent and that will never change, there has been a yearning inside of me to make the most of every moment. Being that I am a busybody, and not one to sit on the sidelines, we have been praying together for the right opportunity to maximize my potential, his potential, and our potential as an overall ministry. It is our goal to be effective in many areas of the Body of Christ while keeping our family as the highest priority.
My idea of being fulfilled at home would include a place where I could lead worship, and find the proper balance between my family and ministry on the road. I didn’t say stop traveling, I simply have come to the understanding that God has the ability to combine my desire to lead worship, be a mom, and carry on a road ministry simultaneously! So to make a long story short, we had arrived at a place where it was either buy a motor coach, hit the road and home school the kids, or me open my heart to the possibility there could be a church out there that embraces and understands the demand on our calling.
I’m so happy to announce that for the next season of my life, I have accepted a position as Worship and Arts Pastor at New Vision Ministry Center in Louisville, KY with Pastors David and Christel Boggs! (Can you see me jumping because I am so excited!) I have visited this church several times and have grown to love their vision and what I see God doing there. This church is straight out of the box! I will have an awesome team to build on and they are ready to move forward! They have offered me this position with the understanding of my call to at times be with Trent or other opportunities as they arise.
Speaking of Trent, he will continue the worship ministry God has entrusted to him on the road doing concerts, worship events, speaking engagements and conferences. He is equally as excited as I am for myself! He believes that this is a great opportunity to provide support for a church that is destined to make maximum Kingdom impact.
We love Florida and our Florida family. Who knows, maybe one day we will be back! One thing for sure is that God directs our path!
With all that being said, please keep us in your prayers as we transition our family to another state, and a new chapter of our life.
I am so excited
