For over 30 years, Faith Austin ministered as a pastor’s wife, teacher, and children’s ministry leader in two churches started by her husband, Rev. Rick Austin. Her ministry titles only touch the surface of her many service roles. Ms. Austin also worked with women’s ministries and served as keynote speaker at conferences and retreats.

In addition to ministering in her church, Faith also successfully acquired her Bachelor of Arts in General Studies and passed both state-required teaching certifications as well as attained merit accreditations working with special needs children. Her love for special needs children was seeded in her from the time she was a child. She counts aiding in their education and their effect on her life as one of her most precious gifts. She has served as an educator in both the Friendswood and Pasadena Independent School Districts as an ESSR and Special Education specialist for over 20 years.
Faith currently lives in the Houston metropolitan area and does what she loves most – serving as grandmother to her many grandchildren.
Over the past few years, she has suffered untold hardship losing eight family members to death within a short period. Ms. Austin gives all the credit to her Heavenly Father has brought her through unspeakable valleys and carried her to the other side with wisdom and insight for the grieving. Two of those she lost were her parents, Mack and Dorothy McCauley.
