Minister Odell joined the Amazing Grace Church family where he served diligently until God called him home.  He was the Assistant Pastor as well as an advisor.  He was a man of few words but when he spoke, everyone listened because he had something beneficial to say.  He lead by example for the entire church family from the pulpit to the front door.  He   believed in supporting his church both financially and in attendance. He prided himself on being a leader and role model for all the men of Amazing Grace Church.
