Corrine Anton - Community Care Pastor
Corrine was born in Milwaukee, lived in Spooner for her first five years and then moved back to Milwaukee. She attended grade school, high school, MATC and UWM all in Milwaukee, leaving the area in 1972. All of her summers, while growing up, were spent in the Spooner/Trego area and Superior, therefore relocation in the Twin Ports seemed only natural. Corrine enjoys watching baseball (especially the Brewers) and basketball. Other hobbies include music and board games. She has a son Larry, daughter-in-law, Jennifer, and grandchildren Jackson and Olivia.
Corrine is credentialed as a minister with the Assemblies of God and has received accreditation from the American Association of Christian Counselors. Her early educational background included Psychology and English. She was in the insurance business for many of those early years. During that time, she became involved in "life in the fast lane" and was dependent on alcohol. While she had experienced a personal relationship with Christ at age 13, she had never grown spiritually. A re-commitment to Christ and a deliverance from alcohol in 1973 was the beginning of a "new life". The Lord called Corrine to youth ministry in 1976 where she continued to minister to the young people of our church and the community until 2003 when the Lord called her to full-time pastoral counseling.
Philosophy of Ministry
Corrine believes that all Christians need to realize that their identity lies in who they are in Christ; not in their educational degree, occupation, marital status, or other accomplishment.
Isaiah 51:1 "...look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn". Corrine believes that this scripture is telling us to look back to the generations before us to see what may have contributed to what we are today. Counseling is not about "blame", but about discovering the reason for a problem and gaining victory. She believes the Lord wants His people to live an abundant life.

Kalyn and Matthew have one daughter, Myra, who was born March 2014.

The US culture is to shy away from community, to be self-sufficient and sustaining. God desires us to see our need for each other and Him inside our lives. We need to build healthy communities in our church and around our city; communities that care and love each other. Are we willing to honestly hear what is happening in someone else's life. And are we willing to pray for each other at any moment.
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
