Joey Deese - Senior Pastor

God called me into ministry when I was 22 years old.  I am married to my beautiful wife, Kasie Deese for 11 years and have served with her in ministry for the entire time.  I have served at OBC for over ten years and it has been an amazing adventure. I count it a privilege to be able to serve the Lord through the local church and believe that the Holy Spirit has huge things in store for this church, community, state and world!  I get to be used by God as a tool in His hand.  It is all God!
