"Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith." -Hebrews 13:7

 

Jim

Jim Odens, Lead Pastor

Jim’s philosophy of life is summed up in five words comprising two statements: God is and God has spoken. For Jim, everything comes back to those two realities and everything is to be viewed in light of those two realities.

Growing up in the home of godly parents and having a father who served as a pastor for more than 40 years, Jim has been familiar with the gospel of Jesus Christ and Christian ministry all his life. There was never a time when he questioned the existence of God or the truth of the gospel of God. However, it was during his senior year in high school that God opened Jim’s heart and enabled him to do more than give mental assent to these truths. It was then that God granted Jim repentance and personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

A few months later God called Jim into vocational ministry. Formal preparation for this life’s work began at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in Owatonna, Minnesota, and continued at Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Jim and his wife Jill are the parents of three beloved, grown daughters and have nine precious grandchildren.

Seth Beyersdorf, Associate Pastor

Seth grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. Though baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, it was not until 2003 at the age of 16, that the Holy Spirit awakened him to the glorious truths of the Gospel. Understanding the righteousness and justice of God for the first time also revealed in a new way his own sin and the judgment he deserved. Forsaking his sin, and calling upon the God of mercy, Seth found Jesus Christ to be a perfect Savior. "...for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon Him" (Romans 10:12).

When God called Seth into fellowship with His Son, He also called him into Gospel ministry. In September of 2016, Oakridge Community Church called him as Associate Pastor. 

Seth and his beautiful wife, Jaime, have been married for 7 years, and the Lord has granted to them the blessing of 4 children.
