Brad Thomas | Lead Pastor


Welcome to Austin Ridge!

Here at the Ridge, we believe that church is more than a place to show up every Sunday.

“Church” is you and me—a dynamic movement of God’s people striving to live the Jesus life in a world desperate for His grace and mercy.

Our hope is that we can help you come to know Jesus personally as your Lord and Savior if you don’t already; that you would grow to be more like Him through personal devotion time, corporate worship, Bible study, community, and generosity; and that you would pour forth gratitude by serving others with a heart forever changed because of the cross. To KNOW, GROW, and SERVE—this is our church purpose and our desire for everyone who calls Austin Ridge, “home.”

I invite you to spend time on this website to learn all about us and what we believe, get to know our ministries and outreach opportunities, and see what upcoming events might interest you.

If you plan to visit Austin Ridge for the first time this Sunday, here’s what you can expect: a relaxed atmosphere (dress up, or come in shorts—either way, you’ll fit in), meaningful worship; biblical teaching you can apply to everyday life; and helpful staff ready to welcome you and answer any questions you might have (feel free to introduce yourself—they’re the ones wearing a name badge). I also encourage you to stop by the Connections Desk in the Lobby before or after service—we’d love to personally welcome you to Austin Ridge and get to know you. 

We’re grateful that you’d consider being part of Austin Ridge and look forward to all God has planned for us along our journey.


Look forward to seeing you,
Brad Thomas
