Austin Chappell is from Fate, Texas. From a young age Austin was marked by God with a passion make Jesus’ name known around the world. This led him to completing all three years at BSSM. He has been involved with Grace Place since 2013 and served as one of Grace Place’s first missionaries for a year-long stay in Sri Lanka. He is deeply burdened for the lost and seeing people come to know Jesus as He is. Because of that Austin has been involved in many aspects of Grace Place including being discipled all the way to pastoring the Second Year Men's house. Austin is a charismatic leader skilled in public communication, graphic/video design, team connection, vision casting, and counseling. He enjoys disc golf, running, spending time with friends, traveling, and reading the word. He is very excited to be back on the leadership team this year after being gone for a year and a half, serving in the media department, video creation team, website development team, and more.
