Church Planting

Growing the Gospel

Planting a church is hard and lonely work, but it’s vitally important work, especially in Austin where the culture is largely unchurched. To attract church planters to Austin and encourage and equip them, we formed the Church Planting Training Center of Hill Country Bible Church. This residency program provides the church planter with mentorship, leadership skills, financial support, and most importantly, a place in a community of churches and individuals that share the calling to reach Austin with the reality of Jesus Christ.

If you are interested in the Church Planting Training Center program, take the online initial Screening Assessment and select Hill Country Bible Church as the agency to receive the automated report. Once you have completed the free assessment, send a current resume to Laurie Carlson at
