Adjunct Faculty

Department: Bible & Theology

Office Location: Lancaster

Austin lived in Lewistown, PA until 2016 when he moved to Lancaster, PA to attend LBC for his bachelor degrees. While there, he met his wife Saundra at Wheatland Presbyterian Church (and she just so happened to transfer into LBC). They married October 5, 2019 and lived in Lancaster, PA while he finished his Master degree at Covenant Theological Seminary and worked for LBC in their Office of Digital Learning. He now works for Westminster Theological Seminary in their Online Learning department. Towards the end of his seminary training, God had placed on their hearts a desire to see gospel-preaching churches multiplied in central and north-central Pennsylvania. They moved back to Lewistown, PA in 2021 , adopted two adorable pups, and he became a pastoral intern at Oakwood Presbyterian Church.
