Through our Foster and Adoption Ministry, many families interested in or pursuing foster care or adoption have received resources, support, and opportunities to connect with others on the same journey. We also support Austin LifeCare, a faith-based nonprofit dedicated to providing biblically based care for young women and men facing unwanted pregnancies.
With a Deaf community of 50,000 in the Austin area, only about 3% attend a Bible-believing, evangelical church. This year, two deaf partners have joined us and are committed to serving and ministering to those in this community who attend our church as well as the unreached.
Over the past several years, God has been growing our campus in ethnic diversity. This has lead to some incredible conversations about the gospel, culture, racial reconciliation, and how to pursue unity in Christ through diversity. Through these conversations, God continues to engage and shape the hearts of those at our campus as we seek to serve south Austin.
Through a continued support of family development, a growing relationship with deaf Austin Stone partners to further serve Austin's deaf community, and a passionate pursuit of further racial diversity and understanding, we are committed wholeheartedly to strategically loving the South Austin community.
