Ray Austin 's Personal Testimony


I was raised in the Christian home. Even though my parents got saved when I was 12 they always made sure that my two brothers and I were in church. Both of my grandfathers were Wesleyan pastors.

I was saved as a result of St. Louis Youth Convention in 1974 at age 16.

God called me into ministry at the age of 17 and by the second semester of my senior year in high school I was in Bible College following Godís Call on my life. I met and married my wife Pam in 1978 and she helped put me through college. I graduated from Ohio Christian University (formerly Circleville Bible College) in 1981.

Pam and I have served in the following churches since 1981.

South Central Wesleyan Church in Terre Haute, IN
First Wesleyan Church in Alexandria, LA
Bayou Wesleyan Church in Bayou La Batre, AL
Ft. Myers East Wesleyan Church in Alva, FL
Hope Wesleyan Church in Naples, FL
Warren Park Wesleyan Church in Indianapolis, IN
Faith Wesleyan Church in Terre Haute, IN
Forest Hills Wesleyan Church in Evansville, IN

I serve as the District Director of the District Board of Ministerial Development for the last 4 years. I also serve on the District Board for Church Multiplication and Discipleship. I have been honored to serve on the District Board of Administration for 3 years.

Pam and I have three grown sons and their wives and nine grandchildren. Pam and I are so grateful to God that our whole family are serving God in a local church.

God has blessed my wife and I in so many countless ways because we have followed him our whole married life!!

To God be the Glory!!
