Reverend Dyanne Alice Corey was born and reared in Roxbury, Massachusetts. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcasting & Film from Boston University. After several years as Municipal Producer for the City of Austin Channel, she left the television cable industry and entered the field of social service where her passion for social equity and justice led her to roles as an advocate, outreach educator, and Executive Director for various non-profit agencies, such as the American Cancer Society, and Boston’s Team Harmony Foundation. Her professional and community work were instrumental in the development of the Boston Healthy Start Initiative, a landmark initiative and a community institution for the Boston Public Health Commission.

 

Reverend Corey began serving God in the Baptist Missions Prison Ministry. Her ministry roles over the many years included Sunday School teacher, Youth leader, Women’s leader, Marriage Ministry leader, and Spiritual Formation Facilitator. She established O.A.S.I.S 139, a ministry of creative self-expression, which offered healing to abused and abandoned women. Reverend Corey responded to God’s call to pastoral ministry earning her Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary, with a concentration in pastoral care, family counseling and addiction recovery. Reverend Corey completed her Clinical Pastoral Education residency and served as a hospital and hospice chaplain for major hospital systems in New York and California.

 

Reverend Corey’s chaplaincy experience has taught her one of life’s most valuable lessons, “One cannot truly love and effectively serve others until one lives in an active state of self-awareness, self-examination and self-love.”

 

Prior to her membership with UMC, Reverend Corey served as an ordained Associate Pastor for Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Brooklyn, New York.

 

Reverend Corey has been married to her best friend Jeffrey Corey for 35 years. Their son Jay and his wife Katie have a five month baby boy, Finis living in Washington. Their daughter Janay lives in Rhode Island; and their youngest son, Blair resides in California.
