THE HILL COUNTRY BIBLE CHURCH STORY
Hill Country Bible Church Leander was planted by a core group of 47
families led by Pastor Peter Horn and began on Easter Sunday, April 8,
2007. We held our first services in the Jim Plain Elementary School. Then in
September of 2010, we relocated to our next location.
Each family who helped us get started made a significant commitment of
their time, talents, and earthly treasures. Together, we began to pursue our
vision of life-change through Jesus for every man, woman, and child.
Moving forward, that vision remains our guide as we seek to lead people
into the life-change of salvation and the life-change of transformation.
In April of 2021, Peter Horn passed away, and although the church deeply
mourned his loss, the church rallied together to continue pursuing the
vision. In August of 2021, the church body affirmed Conor O’Hearn, who
was already on staff, as the new Senior Pastor. On February 27, 2022, we
relocated again to our facility on San Gabriel Parkway where we put down
deep roots in our city. We invite you to join us in the journey.
