Welcome to Our New Member Engagement Coordinator!
PHPC is excited to introduce you to our new Coordinator for Member Engagement, Allison Cochran! Allison and her family moved to Dallas in June of 2018 from Atlanta, GA due to a job promotion for her husband, Webb. In Atlanta, she was Director of Small Groups and Adult Bible Studies at First Presbyterian of Atlanta where she and Webb have been members since 1996. Prior to that job, Allison was involved with various ministries at FPC-Atlanta including serving in the Young Adult Program, teaching fourth grade Sunday School, participating (and facilitating) in the Disciple, Renew and Covenant bible studies, chairing the weekday preschool board, serving as moderator of PW and serving on different pastor search committees. She also served as an elder on Session.
Allison is originally from Knoxville, Tennessee and was raised in First Presbyterian Church. She is a graduate of Agnes Scott College and studied at Columbia Theological Seminary. Allison is married to Webb Cochran and has two sons: Holt (18), a freshman at Clemson University and Smith (16), a sophomore at Episcopal School of Dallas.
"Allison brings a deep faith in Jesus Christ and a wealth of knowledge and experience working on staff in the ministries of First Presbyterian Church in Atlanta,” said Rev. Sarah Johnson. "She also has a passion for the church and for helping others grow as disciples and live out their faith. Allison’s energy and warmth are infectious. Her talent, kindness, and welcoming spirit will be a gift to Preston Hollow’s membership and connections ministry. I am grateful to Allison for answering God’s call to serve in this way and cannot wait for you all to meet and get to know her!”
You will see Allison on Sundays starting January 20, and her first day in the office will be January 15. She will be responsible for connecting with visitors and prospective new members as well as helping new members connect to ministry at PHPC. She will also help coordinate our hospitality efforts and small groups. Please welcome Allison to PHPC!
