Corey Trimble became a believer in 2002 after living a life of addiction while playing music for several years on the road with multiple punk/hardcore bands. He graduated with a B.A. in English Literature from Middle Tennessee State University and went on to teach High School and College English. Although Corey has never attended formal seminary, he became a student pastor in 2005 before leaving the church where he became a Christian to start The Experience Community in 2009. The Experience has grown from only a few people to almost 5,000. Corey is very open about his short-comings and insecurities, which makes his pastoring style very unique and refreshing.
