ASI Seminar: Modern-Day Apologetics

In a culture desperately seeking identity and meaning, what would it look like for the family of God to lovingly live and speak truth to our broken world? How can we defend God’s design for diversity, education, morality, and sexuality while also loving our neighbors?

On Saturday, February 12, join us for a seminar with Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin, author of the highly praised Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion, as she unpacks the opportunities Christ-followers have to make an impact in this pivotal cultural moment, the ways we can engage in conversations about current cultural issues, and the importance of regularly reading the gospels so that we can live daily in the confidence of Christ.

Summer Short-Term Trips Are Back

Join us this summer on one of our short-term trips! This year, we’ve partnered with ministry partners and Austin Stone goers in South Asia and Europe to provide opportunities for you to share the gospel among some of the world’s most unevangelized people groups and serve alongside long-term workers. These short-term teams will be strategically focused on prayer, demonstrating the gospel through service, and personal evangelism. On one of these trips, you can expect to engage with locals, learn about their culture, serve them, offer to pray with them, and seek to share the gospel with them! While all international trips are for adults only, we do have trip options for students as well! Applications for all trips will close February 17.

Women’s Retreat 2022: Expectant

As believers, our lives are defined by a future and a current hope. On this side of heaven, we can live in the assurance of who Jesus is and cling to the truth of His promises. And, we can also look ahead to the moment He returns to make all things new. Think about it! One day, we’ll see Jesus face to face and hope will be a thing of the past because our faith will be made visible. One day, everything good will come to fruition—every broken thing will be restored. On that day, we’ll move from hope to hallelujah because we’ll be home. Expectant is who we get to be until that day comes.

Join women from all congregations of The Austin Stone on March 4-6 for Women’s Retreat 2022: Expectant! The weekend will be filled with times of fellowship, biblical teaching, refreshment, and worship as we focus on 1 Peter 1:3-9 and the truth that we get to live expectantly on this side of heaven because our hope is fixed on Jesus. We have day passes as well as full weekend tickets available! To register for this year’s retreat, click the button below!

Join a Disciple-Making Intensive

Disciple-Making Intensives (DMIs) are for anyone who’s looking to learn practical tools to advance the gospel wherever God has placed them—whether that’s within Austin or throughout the nations! Designed to provide practical training and tools to help each person discern their role in fulfilling the Great Commission, DMIs come together for ten weeks to pray, study disciple-making, and plan how they will put into action what they are learning.

If you’re interested in joining a DMI this spring, sign up at the link below!

Austin Stone Update

There’s beauty to be found in pausing amidst the busyness of daily life to reflect on God’s faithfulness. When we take the time to sit and look back on our lives, even over a short span of time, we get to see the miraculous in the everyday!

Come learn about the miraculous ways God has worked profoundly in the lives of our people through our Q1 update. Whether by the story of hundreds of College students coming together for a weekend focused on spending time with Jesus, the Spirit’s restoration and blessing over couples entering into or sustaining their marriage, or the work of healing wounds caused by the broken nature of our fallen world, we’re rejoicing in God’s faithfulness to our church over the past three months!

It’s our hope that, as you spend time in this update, you’ll be encouraged and amazed by the immeasurable grace He has for His bride, and for you.

Students ATX Weekend 2022

One weekend. One Jesus. One big party. ATX Student Weekend is a D-NOW-style event where 6th-12th grade students stay in host homes and gather together for worship, biblical teaching, crazy amounts of fun, and more! It’s like a two-day summer camp in February! Our desire is for students to encounter Jesus in a new way and fuel a passion for living life on mission in their schools, on their sports team, and in the city of Austin.

For this event, The Austin Stone will partner with several other churches in the Austin area to pull off an EPIC weekend that your student won’t want to miss! To sign up, click the link below!
