• ben gaertner

    worship pastor  

    Ben brings more joy and laughter to our crew than the funniest thing you can think of. Ben and his fabulous wife Kara have four exceptional children, Nathan, Katherine, Kaytie, and Ethan. When Ben isn't working really hard planning Sunday's worship service you can find him either playing Clash Royale, buying coffee at Mojo, or shopping at Costco. Ben has an incredible talent for leading people in worship. God has gifted him incredibly in all areas of music. Fun fact about Ben: he can spontaneously imitate pretty much anything with his voice but good luck getting him to repeat it.

    creative arts director  

    Mandi brings color to Hill Country Fellowship, literally (she painted her office a 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. She and her studly husband, Shawn, have been married since 2012, and like to visit the slopes in Leadville, Colorado whenever they have a spare week. In their spare time in Burnet, you can find them renovating the home they recently purchased or playing with their giant dog, Remi.

    tech & media intern

    Jake Gary 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 youth worship team as a pianist. He also likes finding excuses to go to Mojo and Sonic, and we love him for it.
