When Ministry Takes You Outside the Walls of the Church - with Austin Brooks


In this episode Jon sits down with Austin Brooks for a powerful conversation about ministry beyond the four walls of a church building.  Austin not only grew up in the church, but in the home of a pastor.  As a third-generation pastor’s kid, Austin had a heart for ministry, but from a young age discovered a heart and passion for entrepreneurship that would take his ministry outside of the church and into the marketplace.  

Austin currently serves as the Executive Director of the Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship which is the provider of the CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) program.  Over the past 13 years, the CEO Program has helped communities all over the United States invest in thousands of young people and make radical impacts on their communities.
