Corey Miller // Senior Pastor

Corey accepted the call to serve ACC in 2008. Bringing 25+ years of service to his role as Senior Pastor, Corey focuses on preaching, evangelism, leadership development, community engagement and pastoral care. He prepared for ministry at Nebraska Christian College (BA in Pastoral Ministries, 1991) and Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan College. Corey has been married to his wife Julie since 1992, and they have 2 children: Ian & Mikaela.

Corey’s favorite verse is 1 John 3:16-18:
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
