Taking the Gospel to Our City
Currently, demographers say that nearly 150 people per day move to Austin. That means every year a new “city” of about 50,000 people come into greater Austin looking for jobs, homes, schools, and friends. The question we face is, “When they come to our city, will they find Jesus?” Will they find a faith community where they can experience the life and love and purpose we find in the gospel? Simply put, there be enough churches to reach them all?
We believe it is the church’s responsibility to saturate our city with the love and Good News of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8). Therefore, we work to saturate our city with churches that make disciples who have Gospel conversations as the normal rhythm of their lives.
To that end, our strategy involves a two-pronged approach. First, we are raising up internal church planters from within the congregation of Hill Country Bible Church. You can check out a detailed visual depiction of our Church Planting Pathway development process.
As a part of our internal equipping, we train leaders biblically, theologically, and practically through our Saturate Austin Institute - see more information here.
Second, we are inviting men, who feel the call of God to plant a church planting church in Austin, to apply for our two-year residency. Is that you? Have you heard the Holy Spirit calling you to church planting and to do that in Austin? If so, we want to hear from you. Please reach out to us by sending an email to [email protected]. Please include a current resume and cover letter that describes your call to planting and your interest in Austin.
