PASTOR Greg Corcoran

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 nearly unanimously to call Greg as the Senior Pastor of Battlefield Baptist Church.

Greg and his wife Krista have been married for more than 29 years, and have two boys, Colby and Casey.  Colby is a graduate of Liberty University, married to his multi-talented wife, Taylor, and they now serve on staff at Battlefield Baptist Church.  Classified as a "senior," Casey is in his second year at West Virginia University majoring in Mechanical Engineering.  The Corcorans have also been blessed by God for more than 12 years with Lauren, the "daughter" they always wanted.  She is now 30 years old, resides in Florida, and works in security.  



    Larry trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the age of 11, during VBS at Central Baptist Church in Occoquan, Virginia. He married Jackie, his high school sweetheart, in December 1975, and graduated from the University of Richmond in May 1976, with a degree in Business.

    After moving to Warrenton, Virginia in August of 1993, Larry and his family immediately began attending Battlefield Baptist Church. The Lord initially opened an opportunity for Larry to join the staff at Battlefield in 1999. After taking a missions trip to Zambia, Africa in July 2001, he and his wife knew that God had called them to return to Zambia as full-time career missionaries.

    Amazingly, God immediately opened the door for Larry and Jackie to attend Atlantic Baptist Bible College in Chester, Virginia, and graduate in May 2003 with a Masters of Ministry degree. The couple arrived and began ministry in Zambia in January 2005. After serving faithfully for two years, The Lord redirected the Owens to Sierra Leone, West Africa in 2007 while on furlough. Over the next five years, they were used by God where five churches were planted from their ministry. However, back surgery at the end of 2012 ended any hopes of returning to a third-world mission field.

    Still passionate about serving The Lord and people, Larry once again joined the team at Battlefield and now serves as the Member Care & Outreach Pastor.  Larry and Jackie have three children and six grandchildren.



    A long-time member of Battlefield Baptist Church, Travis Owens now leads our Student Ministry {Grades 6-12} and this generation's young people.  

    Before assuming this role, Travis served as a counselor for more than three years.  In 2014, he felt God's call on his life to do more, and began the process of preparing himself for a lifetime of service. In May of 2019, Travis  completed his Associate of Arts degree in Bible graduating cum laude from Piedmont International University, in Winston-Salem, NC. 

    Travis is passionate about reaching and educating young people with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Travis' wife, Megan, serves by his side and is eager to see what God will do through their ministry in the days ahead.  The couple is expecting their first child in October 2020.


    Having trusted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior just before his 5th birthday in the parking lot of Battlefield Baptist Church, Colby grew up at Battlefield for the majority of his life. After studying music performance for one year at The University of Arkansas, Colby transferred to Liberty University. On November 24, 2013, believing it was God’s desire for him, Colby surrendered his life to full-time ministry during a worship service at Battlefield.

    After graduating from Liberty University in May of 2016 with a degree in Pastoral Leadership, he accepted a position at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, where he served as the Children’s Ministry Director for the 1st-3rd Grade ministry. In May of 2018, Colby returned to his home church, joining the staff here at Battlefield and has served as the Children's & Media Ministry Director since that time. Now, he has the privilege of leading our Media Ministry and is passionate about using media to help people worship The Lord throughout the entire week, rather than just on Sunday morning.

    Colby and his wife, Taylor, are very excited to be a part of what God is doing in and through Battlefield Baptist Church, and look forward to the days of ministry ahead.

  • Taylor corcoran - Worship Ministry Director

    Taylor grew up in Springfield, Missouri and trusted Christ as her Savior as a Sophomore in high school. As a part of a Christian community and local church, Taylor grew in her faith and served regularly on the worship team at Hamlin Baptist Church while she earned her Bachelor's Degree in Music Therapy from Drury University in Springfield, Missouri.

    After finishing college, Taylor married her high school sweetheart, Colby, and moved to Virginia. Though she was thankful to serve The Lord as a music therapist for three years, Taylor now has the privilege of leading our Worship Ministry at Battlefield.

    Taylor is passionate about heartfelt worship and unity in the church. She is humbled that our God allows us to worship Him and is excited to see what He will do in our midst.
