Corey Ricks (an Apostle)
He was born in Portsmouth, Virginia but was raised in Norfolk, Virginia. Apostle Corey grew up in a single family home with his mother. Although she worked hard they still lived a life of extreme poverty. He spent a lot of his time at his grandparents house and worked as a young boy with his grandfather doing everything from concrete work to yard work. Although his father wasn't around it was a blessing from God to put his grandparents in his life while his mother was furthering her education to provide a better life for him. When he became of legal age he began to make his own decisions that looked at the time to be horrible ones. He fell for the peer pressures in life indulging in promiscuity, drug dealing, and all types of manipulations and schemes.
Well one day like the Apostle Paul, Corey had an encounter with the Lord that changed his life! On his way to a big event, smoking marijuana and a car full of cocaine, he heard the VOICE of God say "It's time to get your family in church!" His voice was so CLEAR it brought a conviction to His heart and he immediately turned around, threw all the drugs out of the window and returned home. When he arrived he said to his wife "we are going to someone’s ministry tomorrow". The next morning he received salvation, joined a ministry and slowly began a relationship with the Father! This was just the beginning!
Apostle Corey is gifted in the areas of entrepreneurship, leadership, structure, organization, finance and as a result has built several successful companies (from Import/Export to Business Start Up's/Development) over the past decade. He is the Co-Founder/Visionary of RICKS Coaching & Consulting Group.
He has also been trained in the School of the Prophets through the ministry of (Dr. Bill Hamon/Others) for the uplifting and edification of Gods people. His vision for the Body of Christ is to see them come into their
TRUE purpose and UNLIMITED potential in every area of life especially finances and family!
