Welcome to Christ Lutheran’s new website!  I am Pastor Rodney Vereb, recently retired, yet serving as an interim for Christ Lutheran here in Odessa.  I came from Everett Washington where I served as a Pastoral Director for a Nursing home corporation.  Prior to that I served churches in the Midwest as well as a hospital chaplain.  I also served in the U.S. Air Force and am a Viet Nam veteran.  My wife Jane and I have three grown children and several grandkids.

The congregation that you are looking at in this website understands its Lutheran teachings and theology, with preaching, teaching and administering the sacraments of Baptism and Communion.  Yet its rich history in the community, especially in its outreach to those in need is truly remarkable.  If you attend worship here, you will be greeted with a warm sense of appreciation and care!

Please check out the resources contained in this website and see for yourself the opportunities of worship and ministry.  Many blessings in your search!
