This week our FIRST PERSON guest is Corey Buchanan of Chicagoland Prison Outreach (CPO) (click).
Corey’s connection with CPO came while he was incarcerated at Cook County Jail. He came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ under the ministry of CPO while he was in the Life Learning Program at the jail. He was released in 2001 and got a job while also becoming actively involved at his local church. Corey became a youth pastor at his church and volunteered with CPO every opportunity he had.
Corey, who holds a B.A. in Biblical Exposition & Pastoral Ministry from Moody Bible Institute, joined the staff of CPO as its chaplain for the Cook County Sheriff’s Boot Camp in the fall of 2004 and now serves as the Associate Director.
