The Community Impact Ministry equips and sends the people of Hill Country Bible Church to bless our community and saturate Greater Austin with the love of Jesus. As individuals grow in their walk with God, we develop and empower them to help lead our movement of changed lives that impacts Greater Austin for Christ.
Become a Difference Maker
By volunteering for just 30 minutes a week in a one-on-one reading session, you will help improve one of the most pressing educational issues in the Greater Austin area – school dropout rates. Research has shown that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. Through Education Connection, join the movement to minimize this trend by becoming a volunteer in one of the many participating elementary schools in the Greater Austin area.
