Leader of Chapel Music Ministry
My name is Austin Auberg and I am the Leader of Chapel Music Ministry. I have always held a passion for teaching worship. Not just leading the music or the singing portion of a worship service, but expanding the experience and purpose of worship in our daily lives. The development of a passionate, giving and expressive worship lifestyle that wholeheartedly gives way to this fulfilling and meaningful movement in praise. This passion has helped to shape the vision for Chapel North worship.
I’m a son to Mark and Twyla and a sibling to my seven brothers and a sister, all whom live in Iowa where we were homeschooled together and most of my influential years were spent on a farm. I’ve been a worship leader in some capacity for the better part of 17 years. I started as the drummer in my home church praise band, played in the youth band, and led some Sunday morning services. In college, I met my wife who was a part of the Salt Company worship team we served on together. From there, I took my first official church job where I started their traditional hymn service playing piano and singing. That quickly grew to playing in the contemporary praise band on the drums, and eventually taking over the whole worship ministry. I was later recruited to plant a new church in Menomonee Falls, WI. And that church plant led me to relationships at Hales Corners Lutheran and in 2015 I joined the staff here.
My hopes for Chapel North worship is that it becomes a hub for people to meet before and after services; a default meeting place for small groups, Bible studies, worship, young families and events in our community. My wife Hannah and our daughter Charlotte and I hope that you’re as excited about what God has in store for Hales Corners Lutheran Church through Chapel North worship as we are.
