David Odom, Ph.D.

I am Associate Professor of Christian Ministry at Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska. I teach courses in the area of Christian ministry and Youth Ministry. I live in Elkhorn, Nebraska with my wife and two daughters.

I have dedicated my life to serving Christ and His Church. I have served in full-time youth ministry for over twenty years. I earned my graduate degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.

I love finding creative ways to communicate with students. My Ph.D. dissertation examined the use of mobile phones as learning tools for youth. In addition, I published a chapter entitled, “How to help your student find work and a career,” in the new book Accelerate, compiled by Dr. Richard Ross.
