Creating environments for students to know, grow, and serve Jesus

Our student ministries offer great opportunities to get to know other middle and high school students and grow in your relationship with Jesus. We break out into small groups and studies, go on retreats, get crazy with events, gather during the week, and serve as a team — all to pursue God and love people!

  • Ali Hutcherson

    Ali Hutcherson

    Ali was born and raised in San Antonio (with a few of those years spent in Oklahoma). She received her BA in Curriculum and Instruction, with a dual focus on Special Education and General Education, from Texas State University. Ali has a Young Life background, so she thrives in relational ministry and loves the relationships she has made with students and their families here at Austin Ridge.

    Fun facts: Ali is also a dancer and a vocalist! When she’s not hanging out with students she is attending a concert, putting on her own, taking a dance class, hiking a mountain, or is road tripping to see her family.

  • Bailey Walman

    Bailey Walman

    Bailey is a Florida boy and it shows! He grew up at the hands of Disney World and Universal Studios, and oftentimes it's the only life he ever knew until he met Jesus. Bailey met his wife, Jacqueline, in the most millennial way…on social media! They couldn't be more excited to serve the Kingdom alongside each other full time! Bailey is super pumped and grateful to get a front row seat at Christ building His church through the next generation in Dripping Springs!

  • Bradley Brittain

    Bradley Brittain

    Bradley and his wife, Naomi, met while serving as interns in Student Ministry. They have two cute kiddos, Quinn and Fitz. He became a Christ Follower in Student Ministry when he was 14 (in Las Vegas of all the places!) and has a deep desire to help young people connect with God and grow deeply in their relationship with Him. Favorite past times include eating, reading, drinking coffee, and watching movies.

  • Coley Stephens

    Coley is originally from Keller, Texas, and then attended the University of North Texas. He studied communication and philosophy while at UNT. He was in college ministry for 6 years and loves reading God's word and sharing his faith with others. Usually, you can find him at local coffee shops reading, working out and staying active, or enjoying quality time with friends!

  • Grace Brewer

    Grace Brewer

    Grace grew up in Austin and attended the Ridge with her family. Though she loved her time here as a student, Grace never thought she would be working at Austin Ridge! Grace is passionate about students having a personal relationship with Jesus and hopes to be just a small part of that life-long journey. When not hanging out with students, Grace is probably reading at a coffee shop, snuggling with her cat Frankie, or going on a walk with friends.

  • Holly Dvorak

    Holly Dvorak

    Originally from Virginia and more recently a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina, Holly and Todd relocated to Austin in 2018. God’s perfect timing led them to Texas just as the youngest of their three sons graduated from college. Now that their boys live all over the United States, their favorite pastime is planning great trips and adventures where they can reconnect as a family and enjoy the amazing scenery and handiwork of God. On a more personal note, Holly's passion for all things "organization" has been a blessing to the many homes and families she has served over the years as a family manager coach. Now, God is using those gifts and talents at the Dripping Springs campus.

    Jason was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and Southwestern Seminary.

He enjoys exploring new places during family vacations, coaching youth sports, and watching his favorite teams (Vanderbilt, Yankees, and Steelers). In order to reach all generations and families for Christ, Jason is passionate about equipping individuals with the necessary tools and motivations to authentically share their stories and impact others around them.

  • Josh Hansen
