Tyler & Katie O'DonneLL

Kansas Missionaries & Global Innovative Directors


Tyler and Katie O'Donnell have been serving as Awana Missionaries in Kansas since 2015 and also serve on the Global Innovation Team at Awana. Tyler and Katie are excited God has called them into this capacity of service in Awana. They have a heart for seeing children's lives changed through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Tyler said one of his favorite parts of Awana is that 100% of the time when a child comes to Awana, they will hear the gospel.

Tyler and Katie travel the state of Kansas training, supporting, and equipping existing Awana clubs to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and will be introducing the ministry of Awana to other churches across the state, equipping them to start clubs so they too can impact their community for Christ. Their mission is to equip leaders to reach kids and engage them in lifelong discipleship.

Tyler and Katie have three girls, Lucy, Laney, and London. They live in Wichita, Kansas, which is actually where Sparky is from (it's true, go check your Flight 3:16). They both were active in Awana as children and attribute much of their Scripture memory to the time they spent in Awana. They were married in 2011, just before graduating from college. Katie received her BA in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Wichita State University and is a Certified Academic Language Therapist. Tyler received his BA and MBA in Business Administration from Wichita State University as well as his certificate in Practical Church Ministry from Baptist Bible College.

Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
