More about our Main Speaker...

Austin Lenox was born and raised in North Alabama before attending Mississippi State University. It was here that he found and became involved with RUF and proceeded to work as an intern for them at the University of Tennessee. During this season he met his now wife Meredith who grew up in Oxford, Mississippi and attended Ole Miss (house divided!). Austin attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi where he fell in love with youth ministry and RYM while working at First Presbyterian Church there. He now serves as the Director of Youth Ministry and Assimilation at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Midtown Memphis, Tennessee. Austin's hot takes include Pepsi > Coke, cats > dogs, and that fast food > high end cuisine. He'd love nothing more than to argue about these things with you this summer at an RYM conference during a game of Bocce ball or Carcassonne.
