Cody grew up outside of Philadelphia, PA before studying Youth Ministry at Messiah College. Since graduating in 2012, he has worked full-time for Salt ‘n Light Youth Ministry, a non-profit organization that hosts large-scale youth ministry events throughout the Central Pennsylvania region. He is now on staff at McBic in Mechanicsburg, PA as High School and Young Adult Pastor. Although he had some minimal dance experience through musical theater in high school, his love for dance really grew with his involvement in Salt ‘n Light. What started as a small passion for comedic group dances grew into a desire to tell deeper stories through the art of movement. To get these stories out, Cody began choreographing alongside of technically trained dancers, letting their movement tell the stories of his heart. Little by little, he began dancing more himself, eventually taking a Ballet and Modern class in 2015. He is still relatively new to the dance world, but is passionate about sharing the gospel in new and creative ways. He is thrilled to see how EncounteredHeart will not only stretch and shape him as a dancer, but impact the surrounding community for the kingdom.
