La Grange Seventh-day Adventist® Church

Jesus Is Coming Soon! Are YOU Ready?

Our Pastor


Pastor Merlin Cochran was called by God to be in ministry in 1994. However, he played Jonah for 18 ½ years before God called him and his family again. This time, it was more direct than ever. Since this last call he has been engaged in evangelism efforts in Oregon, and now more recently in Texas. He believes wholeheartedly that Jesus Christ is coming soon and desires that everyone will get to know him. For the past 5 years, he has

been extensively lecturing and teaching about bible prophecy and end-time events. His engaging teaching style will help you understand current world events in light of Bible prophecy.

Pastor Cochran is married to Pam Cochran, they have four children Lynela, Daniella, Merlin III, and Joseph. They enjoy exploring abandoned towns, camping and hiking.
