Austin was raised in a pastor's home. He was raised in the church, and attended whenever the doors were opened. Austin, though didn't know Jesus as a young man. He went through the motions of church and religion for the first 12 years of his life. At 13, Austin met Jesus. From then on, Austin began to feel a calling on his life to pursue ministry. During a youth camp at age 16, Austin submitted to the call God had placed on his life. Since then he has pursued that calling in every way he could. He attended Liberty University from 2010 to 2014 where he graduated with a Bachelor's in Religion: Pastoral Leadership, as well as a Master's from the Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Church Planting and Evangelism. While at Liberty, Austin was a part of the Office of Student Leadership as a Resident Assistant for 2 years. The summer of 2013 and the summer of 2014, Austin participated in the North American Mission Board's Generation Send program in Brooklyn, New York. This program focused on the intensity of church planting in major cities across the US. Austin formerly pastored over 200 students at Second Baptist Church in Clinton, TN. Austin is currently the Operations Pastor at SoulQuest Church. He married his best friend, Sara (pic above), on October 3, 2014. Austin and Sara are the proud parents of Cash Coleman, born October 13, 2016. Austin's vision for the future is to plant a church in a major city and reach people far from God with life in Christ.
