New to staff in 2020, Cortina is IBC’s Middle School Pastor. This hat collecting (over 120 hats!), Buc-ee's loving, Texas native graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Development and Family Studies, and then began the journey of getting his Masters in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Cortina and his wife Rebekah love discovering new music, listening to vinyl records, and planning their next camping/traveling adventure. Passionate about the Dallas Mavericks, traveling to Buc-ee's whenever he can, and all things middle schoolers, Cortina has that special energy to love students and parents well.
