Today, I saw my daughter almost all grown up…ok…she will never be grown up in my eyes. She is so beautiful…yes her outward appearance but more her heart for God. As we have been working on colleges ‘stuff’, I asked her what she really wants to do or where she wants to go? Without knowing, she paid me the greatest compliment as a dad and pastor. She said, I want to stay local, because I love my church. I just want to serve here at Gateway. I love to hear you sing Cory…I love to hear you now, lead our entire congregation in worship! You make your dad and Dad proud. Lovingly, your earthly and heavenly Father! We love you so very much!
My BABY is 18! I love you CORY!

About the Author: Dan O'Deens
I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly. I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory. I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
