Welcome to First Students!

At First Odessa, we seek to shape students to Reach Odessa, the Permian Basin, and the World with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. First Students, our student ministry, offers weekly events that allow students to meet with God and be transformed by His word. Our weekly events are Sunday morning bible study (9:00am) and worship (10:30am), and Wednesday Night service (6:00-7:45pm). If you have any questions, please contact Tim Rose at or by calling the church office at 432-337-1524. To subscribe to First Students text updates text “Student” to 40778.
