Pastor Marlin Austin Sr.


Pastor Marlin T. Austin Sr., most affectionately known as Pastor Marlin or Pastor Austin, is a testimony of Philippians 1:6 which reads, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”  He is a powerful and energetic young man on fire for God. He is a young man being used daily as a minister in the marketplace and countless lives are being transformed and he truly has a passion to help others know Jesus as Lord and Savior.


A native of Baltimore, Maryland, there he faced many of the same issues and challenges of what many of our youth today are facing. But God brought him through it all.  Pastor Austin accepted the call to preach on Father’s Day 2008 and in that same year he preached his initial sermon at the Greater Harvest Baptist Church under the Pastoral leadership of the Rev. Errol D. Gilliard, Sr. He has been preaching for eight years and is totally committed to the up building of the Kingdom of God.  Understanding the importance of education, he has attended Baltimore City Community College for Allied Human Services and he continues to be a lifelong student of the word of God.


Pastor Austin is the Co-Founder of Men Molding Men, a men’s mentoring group that is geared to empower, encourage and educate men across all spectrums.  While faithfully serving as a licensed minister at Faith Christian Worship Center, God placed on his heart the vision to plant a church and in September 2015 he was ordained to the office of Pastor and officially launched the Anointed House of Prayer, often referred to as AHOP.  He is determined to make a change in the community and edify the Kingdom of God.


He has been married to his middle school sweetheart and best friend Tiffany Austin for over eight years and they are the proud parents of three awesome children, Taylor, Marlin Jr., and Mason.


Pastor Marlin Austin Sr. is a loving husband, dedicated father and most of all a Holy Ghost-filled preacher and  a saved man of God.
