Austin grew up in Northern Indiana and attended Olivet Nazarene University. He was the Youth Pastor at Dayton United Methodist Church for four years. Austin felt God's call to serve within the Nazarene Church and moved across the country to join Sutter Creek Church of the Nazarene as our Youth Pastor in the summer of 2013. Austin’s desire is to be used by God to develop and equip young men and women for His purpose. “I love youth, and the more I serve in ministry with them, the more I desire to invest in their lives in a way that will help each one of them and their families draw closer to our Heavenly Father." Austin has been involved with summer camp since he was in Kindergarten. He has been involved in camp leadership since 2002 as a director, counselor, staff member, and speaker. When Austin is not at church, you may find him watching his favorite football team, Da Bears. He loves outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, off-roading, water sports, and paragliding.
