John Augustin’s Story

At the age of 18 John received a call, asking him to attend Covenant School of Worship. He had no desire to attend the school, but having no other direction for his life he decided to try it out. Once in Hyderabad he attended classes faithfully throughout the week. But on free days, he would venture into the city to drink and take part in the same habits he had at home.

John continued to hear God telling him to break free of these addictions. At night when he would go to bed, he could feel the weight of his actions. Realizing that he could not break free of these things on his own, he began to declare freedom over himself in Jesus’ name. As he did this, he felt God’s hand touch him and set him free of his addictions. After this encounter, he came to hate those temptations that had once ruled his life.

While at the Covenant School of Worship, John grew spiritually in his relationship with God. He also, learned more about his gifts of prayer and worship. The change that had taken place in his life was evident to many that knew him. John’s family was happy to see how God had impacted him while he was away.

After finishing his time at Covenant School of Worship, John felt God calling him to ministry. God told him not to worry about anything because he would take care of John. Receiving this promise from God, John decided that he would stay with Covenant Worship and take part in the ministry going on there.

Now, John plays bass in the top level Covenant Worship Band, and leads the traveling band. He and the band travel throughout South India and record the songs God gives them. The Covenant Worship Band ushers people into God’s presence, shares about their experience in Christ, and prays for those in attendance. At outreaches, John shows God’s love for the people by his eagerness to interact with them.

When he is not playing at an event, John serves at our Covenant Worship Centers by working with young people who are learning the guitar and keyboard. He is patient with the students, encouraging them to press into God’s presence even while they are practicing. John’s heart and excitement for the Lord are contagious, setting an example of worship for everyone around him.

Pray for John

Pray for continued spiritual growth and fire for his ministry through the Holy Spirit.
