Hi!! I am Marvin Austin, better known as "Bub." I've been attending the Hillsboro Church of the Nazarene since March of 1984. I was saved in January of 1985 and became a member at that time. I've been a board member more years than not ever since. In 1985, church attendance was running approximately thirty, so if you were a member, you were more than likely filling some position. I've been the leader of a small prayer group ever since the prayer groups were started.
I was born in Crawfordsville and have lived in Mellott all of my life except for the four years I served in the Navy during the Vietnam war and one year in Lafayette after my marriage.
I met Marianne in Zanesville, Ohio during my last year in the Navy (she was my penpal) and just before leaving for my second tour of duty in Vietnam. We were married in Zanesville thirty-nine years ago and we have four children, Julie, Scott, Chris, and Jennifer and one granddaughter, Josie.
I've been in the LP gas business for thirty-seven and a half years, the last twenty-one and a half at Overpeck Gas Co. I enjoy camping, working in my yard, tinkering, and southern gospel music.
I love my church family and always look forward to church and church activities. I feel very blessed serving my God and having a wonderful church and a wonderful family.
