Youth Group Leaders

Matthew and Maggie Austin have had the joy to be youth group leaders for the past ten years at Galilee! They have a passion for seeing teens come to know Christ as their personal Savior and enjoy the connections they are able to create with the youth. They were both raised in Saranac and live in the country near town. Matthew and Maggie have been blessed with three children: Chloe, Silas, and Micah. Matthew is a counselor and Maggie works part time for Our Daily Bread Ministries.
