Dan O’Deens, Executive Director
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!
Gabrielle Draper, Experience Director
Welcome Breathe Family! If you are reading this and do not already consider yourself a part of the Breathe family PLEASE join our family and WELCOME! My name is Gabrielle Draper I am the momma of our family here at Breathe. I not only have 3 of my own little princesses but I get to oversee the mothership at Breathe as the Admin Assistant and Experience Director. I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of Breathe since its first breath in 2010 and it has simply been awesome to see how God has worked in these many years. It began on my first trip and then volunteering to help run teams and do the logistics and planning in our office. As we grew God called me to step out of a comfort zone in my financially stable job to be in our office as a full-time missionary. Man, when we listen, obey and GO when Jesus calls the joy and blessing that follows takes your breath away. If you have any questions and would like to learn more about Breathe or would like to follow me and support me on this Journey you can follow me below.
