Our Pastor

We have been honored and thankful to have had Pastor Douglas M Cook as our pastor for the last 9 years. Pastor Cook was born in Florida and spent his teen years in East Tennessee. Doug married his best friend, Deborah Michelle Gouge, from Newport News, VA in 1983 and joined the US Army shortly afterwards. After serving his country for six years, Doug received an honorable discharge and attended Trinity Baptist College where he earned a BA in Church ministries. Presently, he is working through Light University and the American Association of Christian Counselors on a PTSD and Trauma Counseling Program specialized for our US Military.

As Pastor Cook transitions back to the United States, we are fortunate to have long time friend of Ansbach Baptist Church Pastor John Radank is filling in, while we search for a new full time Pastor.
