• ben gaertner

    worship pastor  

    Ben brings constant joy and laughter to our crew. Ben and his wife Kara have four children, Nathan, Katherine, Kaytie, and Ethan. When Ben isn't working hard planning Sunday's worship service you can find him either checking in on the Aggies, perfecting his cold brew recipe, or shopping at Costco. God has gifted Ben in many areas of music, and he has an incredible talent for leading people in worship. Fun fact about Ben: he can spontaneously imitate pretty much anything with his voice but good luck getting him to do it.

    creative arts director  

    Mandi brings color to Hill Country Fellowship, literally (she painted her office bright teal), just as she brings life to every conversation. Mandi’s never met a stranger, and her love for Jesus shines in every conversation. In their spare time you can find her, her husband, Shawn, and their son Jude, renovating their home in Burnet or playing with their giant dog, Remi.

    Jake is not your typical teenager, but in some ways he is. He loves eating, sleeping and Snapchatting. But above all he loves the Lord and he loves to work hard. When you give him a task, he will get it done and do it well. Jake has a secret talent for being a very good clogger, and also serves on the worship team as a pianist.
