Music Minister

Keith Austin

Keith has been leading worship for over 25 years. He is a former high school counselor, teacher, and coach. He has been married to the same wonderful woman, Dixie, for over 35 years and they have 3 children; Paul, Luke, and Katie. Both boys are full time music ministers, and Katie is accompanist/vocalist for her church.

Since his early years of high school and college, he has been active in music ministry. He has trained and mentored many church musicians, several who are now full time worship pastors. Keith appreciates both traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs. Keith says, “The theology of the hymns is the foundation of our faith. Contemporary worship songs often are praises to the Lord. It should be our heart’s desire to praise Him every morning and grow closer to Him each and every day. Christian music, both old and new, can do that".

One of Keith's favorite verses is Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
