About the Organization:

The church began as a plant of Hill Country Bible Church Austin, which started a major movement of faith in the City of Austin in 1985. Its goal was to saturate the greater Austin area with the Gospel through church planting and working in conjunction with a local association of like-minded churches. Pastor Peter Horn, who is the planting pastor of HCBC Leander, led the church plant training training center and small groups ministry at HCBC Austin before planting the Leander church. He has faithfully stewarded the ministry of Hill Country Bible Church in Leander as its Senior Pastor, since its inception in 2007.


Today, God continues to extend His faithfulness, favor, and grace to HCBC Leander, as he provides opportunities to see life-change through Jesus for every man, woman and child in the Leander area. With a rich and vibrant history in its past, the body of believers of HCBC Leander consider themselves blessed to follow a 30-year vision of growth and impact in the Austin metroplex.
