It is my desire to have a music ministry that honors and glorifies God, a ministry that calls people to worship and prepares the heart to receive God’s word. This we try to accomplish through heart felt congregational singing, choir, special vocal groups and an array of musical instruments.”
God has blessed us with some state of the art equipment which has become valuable tools to help us accomplish our objectives. Although the media ministry is somewhat new, it is simply doing what the church has always done-using what is available at present to reach, teach and build up the body of believers.
Children’s Ministry Director
We understand the emphasis that needs to be placed on children. Besides Sunday school, we have both pre-school and Jr. Age children’s church. Our Jr. Church, which we call Kidsville, is theme related. With AWANA clubs, camp, V.B.S., fun days and other activities, children find that they have a place at Corinth. After all, that’s part of our goal. We’re building lives.

He was called to preach at age sixteen and graduated from Bible Baptist Seminary, Arlington, Texas in 1971. After working in Christian schools and youth ministry, the Lord allowed Bro. Rick to pastor in the states of Florida, Virginia, New York and Georgia.
“Of all the stages in life, our senior years are the most demanding. This is the time of life when our faith and trust in God will be severely tested. In order to survive and maintain our joy and peace, there are a few things that are mandatory. 1) We must be grounded in the Word of God in knowledge and experience. 2) We must be settled and active in the church that God has directed us to join. 3) We must surround ourselves with loving Christian brothers and sisters that pray for us, support us, and help care for us. This is our ministry.”

Our main goal is to see souls saved and to assist the parents of our youth in training them to live a surrendered life for Jesus Christ. We allow our teens to accomplish these goals by giving them opportunities through visitation, inviting friends to services and evangelistic activities. One of the greatest tools we use to keep the teens on fire for God is the summer camp. The teens have a great time and always get a Spiritual uplift. We also have a café and game room, which serves as a place for supervised socialization in a Christian environment.
