Cody Deese is a speaker and motivator dedicated to empowering the next generation. Born and raised in the southern U.S, he grew up the son of a pastor and quickly became "overchurched". Steeped in tradition and stuck with ineffectiveness, Cody knew there had to be more. His journey searching for the real purpose of the Church led him to realize that what looked like decline and decay was actually a re-awakening. As a leader and catalyst of that awakening, Cody makes it his mission to see the church restored.
