Leadership Team

Ben Schenck

Our Pastor

Ben & Savanna Schenck
Ben and Savanna started a church in Round Rock Texas for the sole purpose of introducing people to the life changing reality of Jesus.

Ben is the founder and lead pastor of Awaken.
He holds a Master’s degree of Church Ministry and is passionate about helping people take their next step of faith with Jesus. Ben became a follower of Jesus through reading a newly bought bible following a tour to Afghanistan. It was after a radical heart change that Ben resigned his commission to ultimately serve with in the local church.

Savanna is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus.
She trusted Jesus as her Savior when she was a teenager and has a heart for discipling young women. She has had the privilege of serving alongside her husband Ben who was the Youth and Small Groups Pastor at their sending church in Missouri. After working as an ER nurse for several years she is now a stay at home mom of their three young children Koda, Willow, and Hero.

While serving as a pastor in Springfield, Missouri, Ben and Savanna felt called by God to start a new church. In 2016 they left their friends, family, and former ministry for a future in the greater Austin area. Ben and Savanna live in Round Rock with their children.
