Dr. B. Wesley Austin Jr.
Dr. Booker Wesley Austin Jr. originates from Watts, California where his father, Rev. Booker Wesley Austin, Sr. was the pastor of Truth Missionary Baptist Church for 35 years. Pastor B is a third generation minister. His grandfather, Rev. J. T. Austin was the pastor of the historic Shiloh Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In 1979, Pastor B was licensed and ordained into the ministry and in the spring of 1980 enrolled in Southwestern Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas in pursuit of a Master of Divinity Degree. His other educational accomplishments include a Bachelors of Arts, California State University, Dominguez Hills, Carson California, 1979; Masters of Divinity, Southwestern Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas, 1984; Masters of Religious Education, Southwestern Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas, 1994 and Doctorate of Ministry, Perkins School of Theology/Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, 1998. After pastoring churches for over 20 years, in 2003, God gave Pastor Austin the vision to establish Cornerstone Community of Faith.
He believed one factor in this new endeavor was how the community perceived itself. In other words, a new church development allowed the community to have an active voice in ministering to relevant concerns. An echoing theme emphasized daily at Cornerstone, “Relevant messages for Real living.” Cornerstone Community of Faith truly believes when a community is healthy so is the culture. It was Pastor Austin’s desire to identify the people we would serve and focus on the divine purpose God has for Cornerstone. Celebrating 38 years of marriage to Mrs. Myra Lynn Austin, they are proud parents to three children, and three wonderful grandchildren. Whether it is marriage, his family, or pursing the vision and continued work God has for Cornerstone Ministries, Pastor B has always believed “With God all things are possible,” Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen…. Faith-Forsaking all I Trust Him… Faith-I put my Absolute Confidence in you God…
