Welcome to Boyd Youth!
My name is Cody Austin and I am so excited to be able to serve Boyd Baptist Church as the new Student Pastor alongside my family! I’m originally from South Texas and moved to Bonham when I was 14 years old. I started dating my now wife, Kori, the summer before sophomore year in high school. Kori has resided in Bonham since she was born and we knew early on we wanted to start a family in this area. We have a two-year-old daughter named Maggie who loves going to Boyd and has since she was 2 weeks old. Student ministry is something that has been mentioned to me for quite some time, since I was a teenager actually. God led me through a series of life events that led to this personal calling on mine and my family’s heart. I intend to lead our students by the Holy Spirit and create a unified, accountable, Spirit-enriched group of teens that need to know God's love for them and know that they have someone to walk alongside them in their journey.
Kori and I came from two very different upbringings. However, we still miraculously, through our own walks in life, were led to the same decision that God is the answer. Not the distractions, not what is always the easiest, but what our Lord tells us. We feel compelled to use our life experiences to ensure these kids know that Jesus is Lord.
We meet a couple of times a week! Sundays at 9:45 am & 6:00 pm and Wednesdays at 6:15 PM. Students have a chance to hang out and have fun through activities, worship in song, learn from God’s Word, and build deep relationships. We do provide transportation, so if you need a ride just contact the church office.
