Steve Odera

Pastor of Discipleship

I was born in Kenya where I spent the early part of my childhood, before moving to Brussels, Belgium for my higher education and work. My wife Liz I got married in 1981 and we have three children – Masinde, Jen, and Naliaka.

It was my work with the UN that brought us to Bangkok in March 2011, when I joined ECB. That same year, I was asked to co-lead a LIFE Group and was also invited to sit on the Elder Board. Upon retirement from the UN in 2015, Liz and I were invited by ECB to join the pastoral team to oversee the LIFE Group Ministry.

I enjoy very early morning jogs, fancy myself as a freelance writer and would have loved to be a commercial pilot! Ultimately, though, what gives me a real kick is witnessing genuine transformation in people and relationships around me!
