In July of 2019, Pastor Odya married his wife Amaris. Together, they have one child, a daughter named Serenity.


In his free time, Pastor Odya enjoys watching Wisconsin sports teams—Packers, Brewers, and Badgers. He likes to bowl, cook, golf, fish, bike ride, hike, play board games, and socialize. He is also quick to pull out the apropos movie quote and has a life-long enjoyment of Legos.
