Facilitator: Peter Austin

Peter was born in 1976 and came to know Jesus at ten years old.  Despite coming from a family that did not serve the Lord, God saw fit to ensure Peter heard the gospel shortly after his Aunt and Uncle came to know Jesus.  He spent most weekends with them as a child and the first time he went to church and heard the Word of God preached it immediately sunk into my heart with a sense of profound truth. From 18 to 21 years old he lived with his Aunt and Uncle in discipleship. He had hoped to be a preacher. Despite never turning away from God and continuing to go to church, he was not actively serving because he felt completely unworthy to do so. He was just a Sunday Christian. I spent a decade devoted to my career, school, and my kids on the weekends.  During his last deployment, at a Bible study, he was struck by the fact that he did not want to waste another moment of his life not living 100% for the Lord. He wants to build onto the foundation of Christ the things that endure forever.
