Our Story

Our story began with a vision to be a community of faith that raises bold disciples of Christ who will transform the world. In the summer of 2008, eight members were commissioned from HMCC of Ann Arbor to prayerfully journey together and make that vision a reality here in Austin.

Our desire is to love and to serve the city of Austin – from infants and youth, to single adults and families. In particular, we want to impact the students at the University of Texas because college is a pivotal time for people to discover their God- given destiny.

We are living testimonies that no matter who you are or what you have done, we can be redeemed and restored. As you observe our lives and hear our stories, we hope you will be encouraged to know that Jesus can change any life. No matter your cultural background, field of study, profession, or stage of life, we believe that the transforming power of God can be experienced through our community here at HMCC of Austin.

Although our ministry will continue to encompass and minister to people from different walks of life, our vision will always remain the same: to see people’s lives transformed, redirected to God’s purposes, and sent out to transform the world for the glory of God.

We eagerly anticipate God moving powerfully in and through our lives. With God leading us, we know that it’s going to be an unforgettable adventure. We can’t wait and invite you to experience with us the exciting story that God will continue to unfold!
