Hello, my name is Matt Odegaard and I am the founder of, a ministry to help believers know the Truth of Jesus and put it into practice in their daily lives. Faith and culture have often been disconnected, so I started ChurchPublic to create compelling content to equip people to follow Jesus and engage in the public square. I am currently hosting a podcast and scheduling in person church events. 

You can access the podcast and more information at ChurchPublic.comiTunesSpotifyYouTube and Google. You can also check out @ChurchPublic on social media.
I am now living in the Houston area and have some open dates coming up. I can be available for Sunday morning services or we can schedule a seminar for various times during the week. 

About me:

My wife and I live in the Houston area with our four children. My undergraduate degree is in Classics and Humanities with an emphasis in Greek and Roman culture and I have an MDIV from Bethel Seminary. I have been a pastor for 20 years serving in churches across America. With experience in many roles including preaching, worship leading, tech director and executive pastor, now I have started ChurchPublic to help churches and individual believers understand and address the declining culture. I want to help people live in the world, but not be of the world.
