Minister to Young Adults

Dr. Joey Dodson, Minister to Young Adults –
Joey, Sadie and their 4 children have been members here for two years and have become leaders among us (Sunday School, mission teachers, children’s ministry, music ministry). Joey is from Junction City, a graduate of OBU, Southwestern Seminary, and holds the Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen (Scotland). He has been on OBU’s faculty since 2008. Sadie is also an OBU graduate with a degree in Christian counseling/psychology and the M.S. degree in psychology from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Joey has experience in a number of ministry positions. He has served as Youth Pastor in churches in Arkansas and Texas (1994-2004). He was preaching pastor for the Bridge of Don Baptist Church, Aberdeen, Scotland (2004-2005). He was Pastor of Spiritual Formations for the Grand Parkway Baptist Church in Houston (2007-2008). Since being at OBU he has led his own itinerate ministry of preaching and teaching, known as “Transform Ministries,” that has taken him to churches and ministry centers all over the nation. He has a long resume of teaching experience at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Joey’s love for the Bible is obvious…as is his love for the church. He has a deep passion for the gospel and how the gospel is able to radically change believers’ lives and to draw unbelievers to Christ. His energy level is high and contagious.
