Our Staff


  • Doug Harris, Associate Pastor / Evangelism, Outreach


  • Thomas Dickerson, Associate Pastor / Worship, Student


  • Brenda Cochran, Administrative Assistant

    I have been a member of Atco Baptist Church since 1994, but have been connected to the church through my husband since 1980. I became the Church Secretary/Administrative Assistant in 2005. This was definitely a God thing for me, not one I would have ever considered on my own. I truly feel that I am exactly where He wants me to be at this time. Being in ministry has greatly opened my eyes to the physical and spiritual needs of the world. I am currently serving in our Women's Ministry and on the Hospitality Team. My prayer is that I will allow God to continue to grow me spiritually into the Woman Of God that satisfies His heart's desire for me and that I always give Him the glory for all that He allows me to accomplish both on my job and in my personal life.

  • Chris Forrister, Financial Secretary

    My family and I moved to Georgia in 2003 and shortly afterwards became members of Tabernacle Baptist Church, where I currently serve in the Children's Ministry. After twelve years of being a stay-at-home mom, God led me to employment at Atco Baptist church as the Finance Secretary in August of 2012. I have been truly blessed to work with and get to know the people of this church.
