Who We Are
OUR VISION AND MISSION - To pursue God, cultivate Creativity and celebrate Community!
“I want to create space for personal healing and growth, that turns into people finding their ‘song,’ that turns into blessing for their community no matter how large or small.”
With an education from Manhattan School of Music and Westminster Choir College, Cori’s background in music has always played a major role her life, taking different forms. While working at ICF, in Zürich, Switzerland, Cori began teaching others what she had learned on the stage and began to explore writing for theatre. Working mostly with young adults, she found a love for teaching not just the craft of acting, but also how to partner with God to release His life while you do what He’s gifted you to do! Over the years this led to writing and directing original short and long works as well as directing well-known theatre pieces. Cori has worked as a singer, a director, a teacher, an event host, a youth leader, a mentor, and, most importantly, in her life’s work as a mom to three amazing kids.
“Art can be a vehicle for pain to process, but also to explore healing, wholeness, and beauty. This is what it means for the Creative to walk in humility and hope.”

Swiss by birth, but American by heart, Tom truly has the best of both worlds. A friend to many, and a poet to the core, Tom is equally comfortable in a large crowd, or connecting one on one over good coffee. In his spare time, you’ll find him hanging out with his wife and three kids in New Jersey, recording episodes for his podcast, watching inspiring movies, chatting around the firepit with friends, or enjoying a good fondue in winter.
