Welcome to Odessa Community Church of Christ

Welcome to :

Odessa Community Church !

a nondenominational church plant in progress
in the outer Tampa Bay Area, Florida


This week you’ll be seeing a lot of activity as this site grows to describe and accommodate the existing and upcoming activities of this church entity established by about eight of us at the internal core and blessed by God with an advisory group of, experienced, world-class, mentors directly involved, some in town, some out of town, some flying in to meet in January… so much going on. We plan, among many things, to open doors for weekly services (to start) by the end of January at the Odessa Community Center (a building otherwise, largely closed and locked throughout the day with the exception of a weekly AA meeting with which we are considering adjacent times on Saturdays). We have been a very media-centric ministry before the church plant was encouraged by the network, currently with a weekly sermon being played by Voice of Hope weekly across the continent of Africa out of Nambia from two, hugely international-range 100,000 watt AM radio transmitters with listener reports from all over the world on a good day for radio propagation & reception. Everything we’ve ever aired is archived for on-demand listening (including volunteer-produced bible readings) can be found on our original, sister website below. We began with a much smaller audience on US shortwave hobbyist and “prepper” station WBCQ out of Monticello, Maine, and those entertaining variety Christian fare shows now see more listeners on the website.

Please poke your head back in regularly and visit:
