hill country leadership

Hill Country is a congregational fellowship. This means that the congregation annually re-affirms our entire elder board including the pastor.


The elder board (pastoral team) asks gifted and mature members of the congregation to serve as ministry team leaders (worship, youth, children, men's, women's, etc) and as deacons (building & grounds, Sunday morning deacon ministries, etc).
