Dr. Austin seeks opportunities for discussion and growth in theology, namely, our understanding of God and ourselves. He hopes to do this in a variety of ways, including book seminars, short class series, and one-off lectures. He will be a guest preacher and teacher on some weekends in various parts of the diocese. He is also theologian-in-residence at Incarnation, where he will teach and preach on occasion. He continues to research and write in these principal areas: the intersection of theology with everyday life, Christian ethics, and basic questions of God and the human being.
