Austin Cannon
Student/Media Pastor

I have been a follower of Christ since I was 10 years old. I married my lovely wife Madison (Driskel) Cannon in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 2016. I realized in 2018 that I was called to Student Ministry and continued to pray over this for the next year. In 2019 I was asked to serve as the volunteer Youth Director of First Baptist Church, Lordsburg, New Mexico. In 2021 I realized God was sending us to serve at First Baptist Church, Aztec, NM, as their Full-time student minister. Madison and I have seen God in amazing ways in our lives.

Madison and I love animals! We have five dogs, all of which are rescues. I have many passions and hobbies, among those are- playing video games with my wife, going to the skate park, playing disc golf, basketball, football, and bowling!

My life verse is 1 Timothy 4:12-13

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of scripture, to preaching and to teaching.”
