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.

THE HILL COUNTRY BIBLE CHURCH VISION

HILL COUNTRY BIBLE CHURCH VALUES

  • SUBMISSIVE TO THE SCRIPTURES
    We allow the Scriptures to shape how we think and how we live. When
    cultural norms and personal values diverge from what scripture teaches, we
    choose to submit to the Scriptures, even when it’s unpopular.
  • DEVOTED TO PRAYER
    We pray a lot, even when it’s inconvenient for our schedule, because we
    believe that prayer is our primary pathway to engage with the Holy Spirit
    who guides and directs us on a daily basis. Prayer fuels everything else we
    do.
  • MISSIONALLY TENACIOUS
    We believe Jesus has placed our church in this time and place to work
    toward life change through Jesus for every man, woman, and child. We
    prioritize moving toward this mission over any individual strategy, event, or
    ministry.
  • GOSPEL DRIVEN
    We take our identity as ambassadors of Christ seriously. We look for
    opportunities to verbally express the gospel in large group gatherings and
    in our personal relationships.
  • COMMITTED SERVICE
    We commit significant time to service in the church and as the church in our
    broader community. Our leaders model a servant lifestyle and don’t ask
    anyone to do more than they themselves are doing.
  • FINANCIALLY OBEDIENT
    We consistently ask God how He would have us give of our earthly wealth
    to invest in His Kingdom. That means we don’t shy away from talking about
    money or challenging ourselves to grow in the grace of giving.
  • NEXT GENERATION DEVELOPMENT
    We raise up the next generation by developing them as leaders to take on
    real responsibility. Our planning, budget, and programming reflect this
    value.
  • INTENTIONALLY MULTI-ETHNIC
    We seek to reach people and develop leaders of many ethnicities and
    cultures. Because our vision is for every man, woman, and child we aim to
    be a church that intentionally reflects the demographic of our city on the
    platform and in our church body.
