Dr. McCoy has been the pastor of Peoples Baptist Church since 1993. He first came to Peoples in 1981 as the youth director under Dr. Charles Wright. Under Pastor McCoy's leadership, Peoples Baptist Academy was founded. The property on Mt. Zion road in Morrow was soon sold, and new church and school facilities were built on the 117-acre site in McDonough, GA.
Pastor McCoy has been married to his wife, Trish since 1982. Their daughters Meredith and Monica are graduates of Crown College. Meredith is married to Seth Haas, who serves as the administrator of Peoples Baptist Academy. Monica also lives in McDonough, GA and serves in the ministry as a teacher at the academy.
Dr. McCoy is widely-known among independent Baptists and is a much sought-after speaker. After many years of faithful service, he recently stepped down from the position of Vice-Moderator of Macedonia World Baptist Missions. He is the Moderator for the Nationwide Independent Baptist Fellowship. He has a phenomenal vision for the future of Peoples Baptist Church. His life's verse is found in Psalm 84:11, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."
