Meet our leadership
Say hello to the leadership team at Good Shepherd. First and foremost, we want God to lead Good Shepherd. Sounds like the obvious answer, but this simple statement informs our posture in leadership, to seek God, to see where He is moving, and to follow Him. Good Shepherd is led by Pastor Austin Dyekman but it takes a whole family to make everything come together.
Austin Dyekman - Lead Pastor
Austin Dyekman joined the Good Shepherd leadership team in 2017 as the NXTGEN Pastor and is now the lead pastor. He is married to his wife, Katie, and they have three children, Harper, Harrison, and Haven.
