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. In 2013, Scott was ordained to word and sacrament by our denomination, the Evangelical Covenant Church. In his free time, Scott enjoys sports, the outdoors, and music, especially anything related to guitar. His greatest joy in life is his family; he and his wife, Tracey, have two active and amusing boys.

“The biblical fact is that there are no successful churches. There are, instead, communities of sinners…. In these communities of sinners, one of the sinners is called pastor and given a designated responsibility in the community. The pastor’s responsibility is to keep the community attentive to God.” – Eugene Peterson

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.
