About 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!

As a Pastor I longed for a healthy process to see Joe Pagan turn into Holy Joe.  All of us are committed to the biblical mandate to make disciples, but I have found few that are willing to develop a system to get people to make the necessary commitments to get where they desire. There [...]

MINISTRY CAN ANNOY OR BRING JOY

By |2018-09-18T07:35:14+00:00September 18th, 2018|Uncategorized|

MINISTRY CAN ANNOY OR BRING JOY by Dan O'Deens   September 18, 2018 Ministry is capable of sapping the passion from your soul. Ministry can steal the joy of serving others.  Ministry can turn the optimist into a pessimist.  Ministry can leave you isolated rather than relationally whole. How can this be? Empty what is full. Fill what [...]
