Austin Rhoades Meet the Staff Podcast

My Family:
My wife, Emily, and I met in the spring of 2011. We dated throughout college and seminary, tying the knot on June 9, 2017.

My Story:
I grew up in the great metropolis of Clemmons, North Carolina, which I affectionately deem God’s country. By God’s grace, I grew up in a Christian home and was called into a relationship with Him at an early age. During my sophomore year of high school, I felt a call from God to vocational ministry. Despite my running, God placed me in circumstances to serve in ministry and ministry ultimately became my pursuit and passion. I was blessed with ministry opportunities in North Carolina and Dallas during college and seminary, and I started at RockPointe in 2015 after finishing school.

Something Most People Don’t Know:
I’ve hit a hole in one

My Trademark Expression:
Aight den (Alright then… the North Carolina is still in me)

Besides the Bible, my recommended reading would be:
Knowing God by J.I. Packer

I’m Most Excited About:
Pursuing the call of Eph. 4:12, “to equip the saints for the work of ministry.”

My Favorite TV Shows:
The Office

In my free time, I usually:
Watch TV, movies, or college football with Emily, read, and golf, when I’m lucky.
