Presenter: Corey Miller
The Rev. Dr. Corey Miller will speak to us about Crisis Control Ministry (CCM) of which he has been Director of Philanthropy since 2010.
Crisis Control Ministry was founded in 1973 by religious congregations in Winston-Salem to offer coordinated financial assistance to people in need. CCM aims to treat anyone in a financial crisis with respect and compassion, and to offer them targeted short-term emergency assistance. CCM is the largest emergency assistance provider in Forsyth County, serving over 23,000 people in FY 2013.
Corey met CCM’s Executive Director, Margaret Elliott, in 2002, and got to know CCM through a strong church partnership. This ministry resonated deeply with him, and he was excited to join the staff. His role is to coordinate the growth of donor relationships.
Corey is a native of Winston-Salem and graduated from R.J. Reynolds High School. He is an ordained United Methodist minister, and currently serves in an ecumenical role at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Previously, he served in two local United Methodist congregations in Forsyth County. Before coming to Crisis Control, he was the Executive Director of Smart Start of Davie County. He has been married for over twenty years to his wife Beth and has a teenage son named Caldwell.
