Greg A. Cochran, Associate Pastor for Children and Youth and Spiritual Formation

Life is an adventure! There are dark times of uncertainty and there are times of great light and joy - then there are the “between” times. We are all doing our best to navigate through what life has in store for us. We all have a hunger deep inside to do carry our faith into our daily know God in a more intimate way. This hunger - this desire - is at the root of why we gather in community at Woodbrook; for it is through sharing our stories with one another…asking hard questions…laughing and playing together…comforting one another…being open and accepting that we live into the reality of our truest desires. I invite you to come on the adventure with us.

Greg A. Cochran
For over twenty years, Greg Cochran served as the minister of Christian Education at Woodbrook. In 2010 he assumed the part-time role as executive director of Well for the Journey, a local ecumenical, non-profit organization that provides opportunities for spiritual growth, and now also serves as the part-time Associate Pastor for Children and Youth and Spiritual Formation at Woodbrook.

He is especially gifted in relating to children, youth, and helping others deepen their spiritual life. Greg is a native South Carolinian. He received a B.S. degree in Administrative Management at Clemson University. From Clemson, Greg attended Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity degree in Christian Education.

Greg is also a graduate of the Shalem Institute’s Spiritual Guidance Program. So amidst the many resources he offers, spiritual direction (or facilitation is the term he prefers) is yet another. What brings Greg joy is his family and being creative. Greg is a hiker; a woodworker; and photographer.
