Christ the King is currently in a pastoral vacancy as of September 1, 2020. We are still holding our regular Sunday morning services and outreach events. Please keep us in your prayers as we go through the call process for a new Pastor.
Corey Grant has been blessed to call Ventura County 'home' for most of his life. He grew up in Newbury Park, going down Potrero to the beach and hiking in the hills of Dos Vientos.
Corey graduated from Biola University with his bachelor's in English and Theology. He graduated from Concordia University Irvine with his Master's of Divinity and a MA in Cultural Studies.
One of the many proofs of the goodness of God is the blessing of marrying his best friend and partner, Jennifer, 12 years ago. One of the many proofs of God's sense of humor is the blessing of twin sons, McCarthy and Sawyer, who arrived on the scene 6 years ago. This little family call Oxnard home, and believe God has big plans for our community.
Corey's days are filled with reading, writing, and talking with everyone he can about Jesus. He finds joy in a cup of Costa Rican black coffee, tinkering on the piano, mountain biking in the local hills, or surfing local waves. Corey and his family are blessed, encouraged, and excited to be a part of Christ the King Lutheran Church, and consistently pray for each member.
If you want to drink black coffee, pray together, and talk about Jesus, contact Pastor Corey via firstname.lastname@example.org.
