The Rev. Andrew S. Odom grew up in Dallas, Texas and currently serves as senior pastor of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, a large and vibrant congregation in Richardson. He and his wife Denise, who is also a pastor, have two girls, Marguerite (8) and Mackenzie (6). He holds degrees in economics and history from the University of Texas and completed his Master of Divinity degree at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
After graduating seminary, they went to Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana for a two-year residency program that, in Andy’s opinion, held some of the most formative years he has known. They followed that with a move to Bartlesville, Oklahoma, where Andy service 8½ years as the pastor of First Presbyterian Church, a mid-sized congregation in the heart of cattle and oil country.
When not spending time with family, Andy enjoys fishing, bird hunting, and playing golf. He is also a private pilot and, although he has not flown in a while, hopes to be able to get back up in the air someday.
