Who is Pastor Cory 

Shawna and Kevin 

"..is charismatic finding common ground with all personalities you and old... "


"Rev. Cory Newell was sensational and just a pleasure to work with from the moment of first contact. My new husband and I had a chrisitan, non-denominational beach wedding in the sand at the oceanfront last week with beach week/Greek Fest in full swing unbeknownst to us prior to planning. Cory was accommodating, professional, reliable, and ethical in every aspect of his job. Cory is quick-witted and is charismatic finding common ground with all personalities young and old which was perfect when meeting with us and family members. Guests at our wedding RAVED about how young and attractive Cory was and just a pleasure making all feel welcome with a southern hospitality touch. I would highly recommend Cory to participate at any wedding and he well exceeded our expectations!!!
