Rev. Dr. Kori Phillips McMurtry
CCPC welcomes Pastor Kori, as she begins her tenure as our new pastor!
I began my music ministry in my early teens by playing piano in Sunday School at my Southern Baptist church. At seventeen, my first experience playing the organ for a worship service was during Youth Sunday. Suddenly, my Christian faith and love of music became wonderfully balanced and permanently intertwined. My college years took me to Baltimore and the Peabody Conservatory. I served in a Presbyterian Church in Baltimore County for three and a half years before taking a position at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore for nine years.
My next position took me to the eastern shore where I served at the Presbyterian Church of Easton for almost 34 years. In 2017, I retired from 41 years of general music education. During my teaching career, I developed a tremendous passion for musical theater, and the impact it can have on children’s lives and their personal development.
June, 2018 brought me to Christian Community Presbyterian Church (CCPC), where I immediately found a vibrant Christian community and a new family of friends. There is something wonderfully familiar and comfortable about this church home.
My wife, Georgie and I continue to live in Easton where her family resides. We never tire of the smiles we receive when we are about town on our tandem bike. The two of us are avid flower gardeners and spend as much time as we can in our little piece of God’s paradise. Every summer we travel to the Shaw Theatre Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, where we binge on as many shows as we can pack into eight days.
