i'm a husband, dad, pastor, communicator, and coffee lover.
My name is Austin Walker, and for a job I get to help students experience and understand more of who Jesus is!
I get to do that week in and week out as a Student Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, AR. On top of that, I love opportunities to do that as a camp and retreat speaker. If you want to know more about that, listen to a couple sermons, read some recommendations, or get a hold of me, please do! I’d love to connect, or if you have any questions, reach out on Twitter.

Interested in booking me for your next retreat, camp, or event?
When it comes to speaking to students, whether it is junior high, college, or anywhere in between, I really believe God has gifted me as a communicator. There are PLENTY of things I’m not good at (including speed, beard-growing, and singing), but I think God has wired me to see what Scripture is communicating and translate that into easy-to-grasp concepts applicable to the lives of students. I love preaching and I love hanging out with students, and I would love the opportunity to come hang out with your crew for a special event, weekend retreat, or camp.
Due to our season of life right now and my full time ministry in Little Rock, I am not able to do a large quantity of events each year. But, if you’d like to know about my availability or have any questions about having me come speak to your students (middle school, junior high, high school, or college), just fill out the form below and we’ll talk. The contact form is not a commitment, just an interest form. It won’t bite, promise.
BONUS ROUND: For a seminary project I worked on, I had to send out a survey to thousands of student pastors across the country asking them about good and bad experiences bringing in someone like me to speak to their students. I noticed some themes and put together a free .pdf overviewing the five biggest fears student pastors have when booking speakers (and what to do about them).

What people are saying
“Austin Walker is an excellent, one-of-a-kind, life-long learner and leader. His heart, leadership, and creativity to bring the Scriptures to life through his dedicated study and teaching sets him apart from other communicators. You will definitely want your students and church to experience Austin’s innovative teaching and passion that is an outflow of his love for Jesus. His appetite for God’s word is like none other. You’ll leave his teaching eternally challenged and changed.”
“Austin is one of the best voices your students could hear! He’s hilarious, honest, relevant, and brings God’s Word to life. But the best part about Austin’s communicating is that your students will sense how much he truly loves God.”
Erik Anderson, Pastor of Weekend Ministries, Crossroads Church, Woodbury, Minnesota
“I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to cross paths with Austin. He’s a strategic and creative thinker, a gifted communicator, and a pretty great dude, too.”
“Austin is an animated and thoughtful speaker who really connected with our students! He worked super hard with our team beforehand to make sure that his talks would resonate and support our theme for the week. Best of all, he was the kind of speaker that hung out with students in between sessions and consistently offered to help out in any way possible!”
