National syndicated Radio Show Host Coco Brother (Cory Condrey) released an E-mail on May 22, letting everyone know that he would be leaving his radio show broadcast Coco Live to start something new and on his OWN station.

He put it on record that he was NOT being pushed out by Radio One but he was accepting the call from God to help his wife Joann save our Youth and become an owner of a radio station which will focus on building the Kingdom. The couple will begin focusing on their Exodus youth project immediately and Cory plans to return to radio in a new capacity this fall.

Cory and Joann are seeking volunteers and partners in their new ministry and asks that we be in prayer and work with them:

[quote]The thing you learn in radical faith moments like this is, who your REAL friends are! Was it about what I can or could do for you? Or was it really genuine? Because I’ve been here before, I know what to expect. I’m very excited to see who my real friends will be in this season as Joann and I step out of the boat to REACH out for a LOST generation.[/quote]

Here’s what Core and Joann are asking from us now:

1) Please continue to pray for us.
2) Become a volunteer this summer . (CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION)
3) Become a Life Partner & give to our cause by logging onto
4) Get the word out! All youth leaders, get ready for an awesome 2 week camp experience that will be FREE to you! Registration is in 2 weeks-

It’s Been Great!

That was the title of my email Wednesday the 22nd Of May 2013 to a distinguished group of people in radio (CLICK HERE to read)….Ever since the end of 2012 I’ve been in prayer about what is next.

Now I know….

Continue to follow the voice of God! It’s the same voice I heard in 2004 – 2005 when I was in Hip-Hop on WHTA Hot 107.9 in Atlanta…. FOLLOW ME! Leave it ALL– FOLLOW ME! It was one of the biggest steps of faith I had ever taken. I heard that same voice on Wednesday, 8 years to the day.

When I look back at that day, if I never stepped out on faith, then I would never have been able to be used by God to pour into so many people every night with the love of Christ!

I never thought after being obedient on that day, God would give me everything I desired in radio! My goal was to be the first African American male syndicated at night on a mainstream platform. Syndicated on R&B, Hip- Hop and Gospel stations… ministering the Gospel of Jesus across the country. No one believed that a night time urban radio show could be syndicated, this was truly The LORD’S doing!

I never leave a place until I have accomplished all I am called to do…. When I look back, powerful interviews like 1st Lady Michelle Obama for 1 hour, talking people off the bridge from committing suicide, ushering the presence of God into people’s car, home, job thru the radio. Walking and standing by our gospel artist during their toughest moments. Loving on Leaders/ Pastors through the storm. Seeing live and real miracles take place through the radio. People who were blind, now able to see… Watching the LORD pack out arenas all around the world and seeing people get saved and baptized.

But most of all, we have blazed a trail for others to come and do what we dreamed and envisioned. The greatest compliment anyone can ever give you is to hold on to what you created. So I am very excited about whoever comes behind me because they will have an opportunity that at one point didn’t exist. My work was not in vain. I have only one desire left in radio. When I come back after this summer, I’m coming back to create a legacy that will outlive me. By becoming an owner, we will give many people the same opportunity I had.

But by far…. Exodus still touches my heart! It’s our youth outreach. Everytime we do this evangelistic outreach thousands of young people give their lives to Jesus! It’s incredible, nothing is more fulfilling and rewarding. That’s why I made the decision to leave radio as of Wednedsay May 22, 2013 until after the summer…


Tina Campbell of Mary Mary took to Facebook on behalf of herself and her husband Teddy to seek prayers from her prayer warrior fans to fast and pray with them as they fight to save their marriage, see below:

Los Angeles, CA –– Hi fans and friends. It’s Tina. I hope all of you are well and I thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown my sister and I over the years.

Well, Im actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I. I’m assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself.

My husband’s struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adults. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight.

Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayers and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.

Some Scriptures To Target Your Prayer

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

James 5:16

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

Thanks in advance. Talk to you in 30 days.
