Corky was born and raised in Texas before attending the University of Florida in 1978. Prior to ministry Corky worked in professional sports as an Athletic Trainer before founding and becoming co-owner of South Brevard Physical Therapy in Melbourne. After 15 years of successful business ownership Corky and his family answered the call into full-time ministry and graduated from Emory University in 2001. He served a number of Melbourne churches before being appointed as Senior Pastor of Georgianna Church in June of 2004. He has a great deal of experience in the areas of Leadership and Church Growth and is a sought out speaker in these areas.
Corky serves as a volunteer chaplain with the Brevard County Sheriffs Office and is active in support of Brevard County Schools. He is an adjunct faculty member at Eastern Florida State University where he teaches Phi Theta Kappa Leadership courses. Corky believes in the ministry of presence, and can be frequently seen about our community as he serves with both his time and resources.
Corky is married to Deedie Calhoun, a recently retired kindergarten teacher who is now serving as the Early Childhood Director at Holy Trinity Episcopal School. They are blessed with two adult children; Chris an ICU travel nurse currently living in New Mexico, and Kyle a Patent Attorney for Kirkland-Ellis in San Francisco. As a family they are die-hard Gator fans and Corky and Deedie can be found enjoying the empty nest years with travel and attending sporting events. They feel blessed to serve the Georgianna family and this wonderful community here in Brevard County.
