:: Austin Pfeiffer : associate pastor ::
Austin Pfeiffer is from Portland, Oregon. After graduating high school, he became a Christian and headed to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he studied English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. He cherishes how his young faith was nurtured in a place where Christianity was so foreign and thus made complacency a rarity. In 2005, Austin took a college ministry internship in Winston-Salem. It was there he discovered a passion for the church and also met his wife, Erin.
Austin and Erin married in 2008, living in Boston, MA. In 2009, Erin and Austin moved back to Winston-Salem and started an intentional living community in the West Salem neighborhood. Austin was called to Salem Presbyterian in 2014. He and Erin have three children: Silas (b. 2012), Lucy (b. 2014), Marco (b. 2016), and Blaise (b. 2018). Erin is a public health professional who manages the East Africa maternal and child health projects for Food for the Hungry. Austin has an M.A. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a Th.M. from Duke Divinity School. His academic work has focused on Christian community and the local church.
