Michael and Sandra Corriero
Pastor Mike received Christ in 1972 after seeing his heroin dealer set free from a 140 mg methadone habit without any withdrawal by the power of the Lord. This miracle opened his heart and brought him to Christ. Mike experienced a release from the craving for heroin in December '72 when he was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Mike and Sandy met in 1974, and were married in 1975. They now have four grown children and six grandchildren. In 1985, Mike responded to the Lord's call and relocated to Ithaca to become an Assistant Pastor of First Assembly of God. In May 1987, Mike became pastor of Agape Bible Church and is committed to sharing the gospel of Christ, teaching the word of God and building up believers. He has ministered to many Christian student groups at both Cornell University and Ithaca College since 1990.
