Pastoral staff

Scott Austin


Scott is one of Artisan’s founding pastors and has been known to say he couldn’t imagine being a pastor anywhere else. He graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 1999 with a degree in contemporary ministries and music and earned his Master of Divinity degree from Northeastern Seminary in 2005. He is dedicated to loving and serving all people, with a particular interest in caring for those who have been marginalized and treated as outsiders in religious communities.

In his free time, Scott plays volleyball at Hot Shots and is active in the Rochester music scene. His greatest joy in life is his family: his wife Tracey, and their two sons.

Jessie Brajcki

Youth and Children's Pastor

Jessie is our pastor to youth, children, and their families. She graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2008 with a degree in contemporary ministries with a youth and family focus. She is passionate about helping children encounter God and supporting them as they grow into lifelong faith, as well as equipping parents to be their children’s spiritual leaders and guides.

Jessie and her husband Dave have three elementary aged children who keep their lives interesting! The Brajckis can usually be found playing board games, running around a playground, or driving to and from dance or theater rehearsals.
