PASTOR Greg Corcoran

greg@battlefieldbaptist.org

Greg received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior on September 16, 1980, while attending a revival meeting at Calvary Road Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia.  After joining the U.S. Marine Corps in 1985, his relationship with The Lord really began to develop when a fellow marine challenged him to "walk his talk."  After that, Greg began serving The Lord in various church ministries wherever he was stationed.


After marrying on August 3, 1991, Greg and his wife Krista served The Lord at Parham Road Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia.  In June of 1992, the couple moved to Northern Virginia, when Greg transferred his active duty status to the U.S. Army. 


The Corcorans initially became members of Battlefield Baptist Church in July 1993.  Four years later during a Missions Revival, Greg and his wife both surrendered their lives to full-time Christian service and immediately began moving towards fulfillment of that commitment.  Over the next 9 years, they were trained and served in various leadership capacities within the church.  In late 2006, after more than 21 years of collective service in the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army, Greg retired at the rank of Sergeant Major, ending his active duty military service; he was awarded The Legion of Merit for his exceptionally meritorious service to the nation at that time.


Heeding God's call, Greg immediately enrolled in Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, to begin his formal education.  Soon afterwards, he began leading the College & Career Ministry at Park Crest Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri.  After graduating Summa Cum Laude, Greg joined the full-time pastoral staff at Park Crest Baptist as the Associate Pastor.  in July 2012, Greg was led by God to return to Battlefield Baptist Church as the Assistant Pastor.  In November 2013, the congregation voted by an overwhelming majority to call Greg as the Senior Pastor of Battlefield Baptist Church.


Greg and his wife Krista have been married for more than 25 years, and have two boys, Colby and Casey.  Colby is a graduate of Liberty University and currently serves on staff at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee.  Casey is a bright and very energetic sophomore in High School.  The Corcorans have also been blessed by God over the past 9 years with Lauren, the "daughter" they always wanted.  She is now 27 years old, resides in Florida, and has been assisting with a new church plant.

  • Jerrod Cate - Worship

    JERROD@BATTLEFIELDBAPTIST.ORG

    Jerrod Cate grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was saved when he was 12 years old at a Vacation Bible School.  He surrendered to full-time ministry at age 15, at a church camp. In May of 2015, Jerrod graduated from Baptist Bible College with a degree in Church Music.


    Jerrod has been passionate about sharing the love of God through music since he was saved. He has served in everything from southern gospel quartets, to musicals, to cantatas, and even stage plays. These performances have been used to show the love of Christ through the story telling abilities of drama and song.


    Jerrod believes that the ability to give God praise and worship is more than just singing a song – but encompasses the daily life of every person. He wants his life's service to be that which God uses to help people worship at every moment of their lives.
