New Hope Assembly of God located at 6800 Townsend Avenue in Urbandale, Iowa announces the addition of Austin Weaver to their Pastoral team. Austin will serve as College Pastor and becomes the eighth full time staff member.
Weaver was a 2009 graduate of Urbandale High School, where he was active with show choir, honor choir, the baseball team and serving on the leadership team of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Austin graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2012 from North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a degree in Pastoral Studies where he was named Pastoral Graduate of the year. He was awarded a 3 ½ week study trip to Israel and honored as Senior Class Speaker.
New Hope is building a 54,000 square foot church at 4425 – 70th Street which will open in November, and allow adequate space for ministry to college students.
When asked why he wanted to return to the Des Moines area for ministry, Weaver said “I love Urbandale – there is no other place I would rather be to help make a difference in the lives of college students.”
