Our New Pastor

Posted on March 17, 2015
Philadelphia is excited to announce that Cory Varden has been called as our teaching pastor. Cory comes to us after serving with a teaching resource ministry for the past four years. He is serving bi-vocationally at Philadelphia while he works as a project manager at a local construction company. Cory is married to Nicole and they have three children. Philadelphia has had the privilege of getting to know Cory and his family over the past several months as he preached for us regularly during our transition. Through that period we were blessed by his teaching and his leadership. We are humbled by the Lord's provision and looking forward to what the Lord has in store for his church here at Philadelphia. Cory's desire is that Philadelphia be a place that is driven by a desire to glorify the Lord in all things and to do that specifically by fostering Biblical community, by training God's people in His Word, by worshiping Him in Spirit and in truth, and by taking the glorious message of the gospel to ends of the earth. Welcome Cory and Nicole. May the Lord give us many years of serving Him together.
