Corey Garris is the Lead Pastor of the Arvada Vineyard and helps lead the Mile High Vineyard family of neighborhood churches. He joined the staff in January 2014 because he had a desire to work with a passionate team committed to building a network of churches to spiritually influence the city of Denver. Prior to working at MHV, Corey oversaw the development of campuses at Vineyard Columbus, and in his former life was a child welfare caseworker.
Corey knows firsthand the impact that the Gospel, good leadership, consistent discipleship, and living life in community can have on someone. He’s passionate about seeing Jesus transform lives in our city and neighborhood churches being life-giving communities that profoundly impact their neighborhoods and communities. Corey is fortunate to be a part of the Multiply Vineyard team serving Vineyard USA’s vision to release dozens of healthy church plants every year.
Corey is a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a degree in Criminal Justice. He and Cyndia have been married since 2003 and have three daughters, Ava, Rylee and Linda. In their free time they love to travel as well as obsess over anything related to NBA basketball and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Speakers, hosts, and storytellers include a variety of Vineyard leaders and friends of the Vineyard.
