Administrative Assistant Shawn Constant


Amy Becker

First Connections Associate

Amy joined our staff in October of 2015 as the First Connections Associate. She desires to make sure all guests of AOC feel welcome and can easily get connected into the AOC family. Amy was born in WI making her a lifelong Packers fan but she spent most of her life in NY. While still in college getting her business degree, she started and ran her own horse business, High Standard Stables, for 9 years. Then the Lord called her to close her business and move to Austin in 2015. It has been a faith journey with many road bumps but she is forever grateful for the growth the Lord has brought in her life along the way. She has a labrador retriever named “Grace” and still has a passion for horses. She also enjoys playing basketball, tennis, and running.

Meghan Congdon

Women's Ministry & Events Intern

Hailing from a small town in the fjords of British Columbia, Meghan loves to extend further than she can reach. She lives for Jesus and talks about Him the most (though her husband takes a very close second). She loves to learn, to teach what she knows, and to help others achieve their goals. She's a registered Royal Conservatory of Music piano teacher with ten years' experience, as well as a freelance writer and copy-editor. Due to social-justice-warrior tendencies, Meghan is often distracted by philanthropy. Her hands are usually in at least a few pies. Meghan and her husband Mike like to country dance, debate theology, write music, build things, and run away in pursuit of wild adventures.
