Paul Austin

Director of Worship Ministries

Born and raised in the great state of Texas, I became the Director of Worship Ministries at FCC in the summer of 2010. It is great to work at a church where people are passionate about worship, discipleship, and reaching the lost.

To sum up my life in a few short sentences… I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University (Abilene, Texas) with a bachelor's degree in Church Music in 2004 and a master’s degree in Composition and Theory in 2007.  Hardin-Simmons University is also where I met my beautiful wife, Kandi. We were married in the summer of 2004 and have four children Desiree, Ryker, Cayman, and Tannin. As I stated earlier, I have spent most of my life in Texas and have served as a Worship Pastor in several different denominations including the Methodist, Bible, Baptist, and now Covenant denominations. My passion is to write music for the churches that I serve in both the classical and contemporary genre as well as leading others in worship. 

If you are gifted in any of the creative arts (music, drama, dance…) and have a heart for worship, please don’t hesitate to contact me about being a part of our worship ministry. Our goal is to build a Creative Arts Program that trains people in the worship arts and creates opportunities for them to minister to others. I look forward to hearing from you.
