Robbie grew up in Easley, South Carolina, and at the age of nine, he knew God wanted him to be a Pastor. After being in ministry for more than twelve years, in the fall of 2009 God called Robbie to start Envision Church in the Upstate of South Carolina. Envision was born out of his passion to see people be connected to a purpose that can only be realized in relationship with Christ. His vision for Greenville is that God would radically impact this region with a church that is known by what they do more than what they say.
Corbin Hogue grew up in the city of Gaffney, SC. Throughout his childhood, he developed a great gift for dancing and entertaining people. On October 21, 2009 Corbin and his dance group had their big break as they went on a popular televised show and won a dance competition. Soon Corbin began to feel like dance wasn’t the way that he should be going. He began to feel that God was pulling on his heart to go down a new path. During the year of 2011, Corbin left dancing and began to follow Jesus and allow him to guide his footsteps. Since then, Corbin has grown as a man and a youth minister, helping individuals with numerous issues in their lives. Corbin joined the Envision Team in May of 2014. He and his wife Kyrtisha live in Greenville with their son, Austun.
Tyrell Martin was born and raised here in Greenville, SC. Tyrell accepted Christ at a very young age and always felt in his heart that God had a purpose for him and his life. At 17 years old Tyrell began leading worship, and in the summer of 2012, God really began to confirm that he had called him to lead Worship by opening doors for him to do just that. Tyrell's purpose and passion is to lead people into Christ centered worship, where people can experience the presence of God and His glory. Jesus opened a door for Tyrell and his wife to join Envision Church in June of 2015. Tyrell lives in Greenville, with his wife Kia and their son, Elisha.
