Napa Methodist Church Staff and Leadership Spotlight: Grow Lay Leader Austin Eikenberry

Staff and Leadership Spotlight: Grow Lay Leader Austin Eikenberry

Sally Archambault Community Corner, Staff and Leadership Spotlight

Every week we are highlighting one of Napa Methodist’s hard-working staff and leadership through our Spotlight Series. This week, learn a little bit more about Grow Lay Leader, Austin Eikenberry, though our Q&A with him:

Question 1: How long have you served at Napa Methodist Church?

Austin: I’ve been preaching regularly for more than 2 years and officially lay leader for 2 years. I’ve been the Annual Conference Lay member for a year and a half.

Question 2: If your life was made into a movie, what genre would it be and who would play you?

Austin: It would probably be either a dark comedy or a farce… I would hope Ed Norton would play me, but it would probably be Zach Galifianakis.

Question 3: What one thing about you do you want in your eulogy?

Austin: My relationship with my family. That I always, no matter how busy, tried to make them matter.

Question 4: If you were to tell one person “Thank You” for helping you become the person you are today, who would it be and what did they do?

Austin: I’d say thank you to my grandfather. Although I did not know him when he was in his prime, he and my grandmother left a legacy of faith and dedication that I cannot match. It set a target for me to aim at that is unparalleled.

Question 5: What is the most important lesson you have learned in the last year?

Austin: I can’t do everything that I think I should be able to.

Question 6: What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?

Austin: I would say that my board game fascination is the nerdiest thing. When I asked my wife she said “prattle on about obscure theological matters.”

Thank you, Austin Eikenberry, for sharing with us today and for all that you do for Napa Methodist Church!
