Welcome to our site! Whether you attend the Austin Stone Community Church, have enjoyed our stories or films, or heard about us on social media—we’re excited to equip you as you grow in your role as an artist or gospel storyteller.

What is the Story Team?

Story Team is a ministry of the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas. We are a community of artists who tell stories of gospel transformation. Our hope is to inspire the church to worship Jesus for who He is and to remember what He has done.We are photographers, writers, editors, filmmakers, and musicians—a family of artists on a common mission to use our gifts for God’s glory. We desire to equip storytellers and storytelling ministries to be effective in their local community and churches, and this website is a resource and tool for them.

Equipping Storytellers

We believe that by telling honest and encouraging stories of gospel transformation, we are creating modern-day ebenezers that will inspire both us and generations to come, to worship Jesus Christ for who he is, and to help us remember what he has done. We have seen the impact of these stories, and feel a burden to share what God has taught us with others.

This website will be a venue for presenting storytellers with a wide range of resources as we share our experience and insight from over six years of gospel storytelling, in the hope that more artists and churches will discover and invest in the power of storytelling.

Resources will include:

  • Theology and philosophy of gospel storytelling
  • Advice and guidance for leaders on how to lead and shepherd a team of storytellers
  • Thoughts and advice on craft from our artists
  • Tips and how-to’s from our team
  • Behind the story series: interviewing our artists in how they approach each story
  • Gear and equipments reviews from our filmmakers and photographers
  • Recommendations and links to other great resources

Contributors will include artists and leaders from our team, as well as Austin Stone staff, with occasional guest posts from other storytellers.
