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 almost six years and have served with her in ministry for the entire time. I have served at OBC for almost five 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!

Oakdale has called me as Worship Pastor and I am very excited to see what God has planned here. Being able to lead this congregation into worshiping our God is a wonderful ministry.

I am a graduate of Rock Hill High School, Gardner-Webb University, and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Seminary is where I met my lovely wife, Marcy. We have been married for 11 years and have two sons.

Kasie Deese - Children's Director
I am the Children's Director at Oakdale Baptist Church and have been able to serve in this position for almost five years. It is an amazing thing to be able to come into the church everyday and be used by the Lord to teach chidren about the life changing message of Jesus Christ. I believe that the kids should have the truth of the Gospel explained to them on their level. Make sure you check out the Upstream Kids page to see what is going on. If you are interested in our children's ministry, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Bobby Fields - Youth Director
We would like to welcome Bobby Fields as Youth Director. We will have more information about Bobby and his family for you very soon.
Robin Thomas - Financial Administrator
To know that my professional carrier in the banking and mortgage business would be the stepping stones to allow me to do what I love to do and live out my calling for God in the area of Church financing is a real blessing from the Lord. I prefer to treat this as a ministry rather than a place of employment as we work as a body to be good stewards of the money that He has entrusted us with. Another aspect of my area of ministry is the opportunity to help families and individuals learn ways to manage their money God's way. I've been blessed with a wonderful husband, Chris, for 30 short years and we have 4 wonderful children in our life (Matthew & Tara and Jonathan & Chelsea), and our first grandchild is on the way as Matthew and Tara are expecting their child in August.
Pete Channell - Buildings and Grounds Supervisor
Pete and his wife Robin have been married for 25 and are blessed with five children and six grandchildren. Pete also teaches our men's Sunday School class on Sunday mornings. Pete works "part-time" but if you stop by during the week, chances are you will see him serving. He also owns and operates Rural Garbage Service. He is also proud to have served in the Army and National Guard. Paint it, cut it, teach it...we are grateful to have Pete serving on the OBC team.
Kelly Olney - Child Development Center Director
I am very fortunate to be able to serve the Lord in our CDC. Oakdale Baptist Church is also my family's church and I count it a blessing to be able to invest into children everyday. I am married to my wonderful husband, Britt, and we currently have one child named Tate. I say currently because we are expecting another child this summer! Contact me if you are interested in having your child a part of the Next Generation CDC.

Barbara Roth - Pianist
I have been a part of OBC for over five years and involved in the worship team the entire time. If there is one thing that I would like people to remember about me, it would be that I lived my faith out loud. I get the most enjoyment out of knowing that I am where God wants me to be. Nothing happens in this life by accident; God not only has a part in everything that I do, he is the conductor. I just sit in his orchestra and follow His lead. I am happily married to my husband, David Roth
