Our Leadership Team

Wayside believes in having a plurality of biblically-qualified leaders.


Ben Brummett

Elder / Pastor of Fellowship

Ben grew up in Austin and attended the University of Texas. He graduated with a BA in Government and worked at the State Capitol before moving to Fort Worth for a sales position with a young, entrepreneurial company.

He became a follower of Christ in 2004, and then, in 2006, he joined the staff of Christ Chapel Bible Church and began course work at Dallas Theological Seminary.

Before graduating with a MA in Christian Education, Ben met and married Staci Edwards in 2007. Ben and Staci have three amazing kids: Hannah (6), William (4) and Brantner (1).

In 2014, the Brummetts felt God calling them back to Austin to get involved in planting new churches. Following God’s call, they moved from Fort Worth to Northwest Austin in January, 2015.


Jason Peters

Elder / Pastor of Discipleship

A life-long learner, Jason has master’s degrees in theological studies and biblical Greek. He studied biblical Hebrew at the Hebrew university of Jerusalem. He has a deep passion for bringing God’s Word to life in a variety of equipping contexts.

For the past seven years, Jason has served on the staff of three different churches with roles in college ministry, family ministry, and discipleship. He also served on the staff of Young Life, and was previously Pastor of Discipleship at The Church at Lake Travis, a thriving four-year-old church plant in Austin that Jason helped to get started.  

Jason shares his passion for ministry with his wife, Maggie, who also had an extended career with Young Life, and they are grateful for the abundant blessing of their three children: Marigrace, Faith, and Clark.

Planting a new church in Austin has been something God placed on Jason’s heart more than three years ago. Jason and Maggie are excited to make this dream a reality.
