Pastor Dick Odum graduated from Fort Hays State university in 1976 with a BS in K-12 education.  In 2001 he was ordained to preach by the American Baptist Churches Central Region.  Pastor Dick accepted the Lord in 1969 and has been hungry for the Word since.  He tells everyone he meets about Jesus, so one could say the he has been preaching for 48 years in the eyes of God.  He is a researcher, so when he is preaching from the Word of God, expect to learn more than just how the verse reads.   

Pastor Dick's life verse is from Hebrews 11:6 "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him."

Pastor Dick and his wife Elie were married in 1969.  Their union blessed them with a son, Wade, who is married to Conoshia.  Wade and Conoshia have blessed Pastor and Elie with three grandchildren.  Elie serves as an importan support system to Pastor's role at Lebo Baptist Church.

Youth Director

Tiffany Tastove-Rosine


Tiffany Tastove-Rosine holds the position of Youth Director at Lebo Baptist Church.  Tiffany's infectious smile and positive attitude are just two of the the enduring qualities that make her such a wonderful leader for our youth.  She has a wonderful love for our Father, and it doesn't matter if she is teaching her lesson to the little ones, or the junior high youth group, she can get her message across on their level in a way that is always fun for them.

Tiffany and her husband Bryon were both raised in Lebo, so there are strong roots here.  They are very excited to be raising their three beautiful daughters here.
