Austin Smith is the pastor of Movement Rock Hill and CEO of Austin Gerard & Co., a boutique marketing agency specializing in brand identity through logo design, web design, packaging design, cover art, marketing collateral, and social media branding. The ability to lead his family and establish a legacy that will impact future generations is a responsibility that he treasures dearly. Smith and his wife, Brea, started Movement Rock Hill in August 2020 because they had a vision for spreading the gospel throughout the community of Rock Hill. By doing so, they have transformed their platform into a place where family is found, truth transforms, and purpose is revealed. “Being a creative isn’t something that a certificate or degree makes you; it’s someone who God intended you to be. Because it’s always been inside of your DNA –– ever since He spoke you into existence,” says Smith. Smith received his bachelor’s degree in digital information design with a concentration in digital commerce from Winthrop University.
