Dirk & Lori Hodges
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the small rural town of Tonkawa, Oklahoma. Because it was a football town and my Dad being a football coach early in his career, sports became a large part of my life. Eventually playing football in college would be one of the factors that God used to draw me to Himself.
Who is your favorite sports team?
Oklahoma Sooner Football.

Who are your most influential authors?

Sara Beth Hodges
Where are you from & How did you get here?
"I grew up here in Ft. Worth, TX and I came to Freedom right after High School graduation in 2008!"
What is on your personal Playlist?
"I love me some Bethel or Rend Collective Experiment but I also enjoy oldies such as Glen Miller and Perry Como. I also dig any type of Celtic or Gaelic music."
Have you always wanted to lead music and sing?
"I was raised in a very musical home but if you told me when I first started coming to Freedom that I would willingly stand up up in front of people every week I would have said you were CRAZY! God can and will give you boldness in Christ for His Kingdom purpose."
