LTC Tom and Cheri Austin, USA (Ret.)
Tom is a USMA graduate who retired from active duty in 1995. He and Cheri, who have six children and six grandchildren, endeavor to “develop a biblical worldview in our Christian cadets, helping them mature into leaders serving their nation and Lord as Army officers.”
Twenty-three ministry couples assist them with ministry to nearly 400 cadets: individual and small group meetings, weekend socials, and special events for cadets’ parents — largely taking place at the OCF Fellowship House.
The Austins’ other outreach opportunities include supporting the chaplains at the installation on a regular basis and teaching Bible studies: Cheri at PWOC and Tom at the USMA Prep School.
