Senior Pastor

Cory Welch

My wife and I both grew up in Tyler, TX and attended Dallas Baptist University. Christ became my Lord and Savior at a Vacation Bible School in Chapel Hill, TX when I was 8 years old and He began to call me into ministry when I was 14. I earned a bachelors in Business Management from DBU and went on to receive my Masters of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. I served at Crossroads Christian Church in Grand Prairie, TX from October 2003-October 2006 before I was called to PBC as the youth pastor in that same month. I officially transitioned into my current role in September 2020. My passion for ministry is to lead people to know Jesus as both Savior and Lord and to discover the purpose for which God created them. Natalie and I have been married since February 2008 and have 3 children.

What to Expect

At Purcellville Baptist, we think church should be fun! You will find that our services are energetic and upbeat. Our worship experience involves modern praise and worship songs followed by a Bible-centered teaching. As an community church, we welcome people from all walks of life to join us. Church is a time to come together with believers, be challenged, encouraged and equipped through God’s word. We know that being new is sometimes intimidating, but at PBC, it is our desire that you feel welcomed from the start! Upon your first visit please head to our Guest reception area after the service which is located in the back of the Sanctuary, and one of our trained volunteers will talk to you about our church and give you a little gift. Our worship experience lasts for about an hour. We encourage you to come early, hang out and grab a cup of coffee at our refreshment table in the lobby. We can’t wait to meet you!
