  • IRA ORr  


    Ira has been serving the staff at Hill Country Fellowship since 2008. He loves to remind the staff that people are more important than programs. He is a retired Colonel and a twenty-seven year veteran of the United States Army. He loves bragging on his amazing wife Barbara, his kids and even grandkids, and has a dream one day to retire on the beaches of Hawaii. His footprints in the sand will be easy to spot, since he wears a size 15 shoe. In his free time (when it's warm), you can find him at Delaware Springs Golf Course.



    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.



    Jay Paul is the only pastor at HCF with three first names. He’s also known as “that really tall pastor at that church in Burnet.” Jay is married with a wonderful wife Kari, and three amazing children Jud, Strat, and Asah. Jay is a licensed counselor and spends much time meeting with folks to help them in their walk with Jesus.  He's never met a stranger, and Jay loves to meet and converse with everyone he runs into. He has a real spiritual gift for connection and a great pastoral heart that loves to serve the Lord.



    Jeremy has an endless supply of enthusiasm. Jeremy has a special love for hunting, especially moose, although he hasn’t found many since moving to Texas from Alaska. You may notice him driving around town in his 1955 cherry red Chevy that he restored with his dad. Jeremy has a great passion for sharing the good news of Jesus with strangers and going on every mission trip he can.


    student PASTOR  

    Michael grew up a Burnet Bulldog and attended HCF.  Fortunately after college and seminary, the Lord convinced him (and wife Aimee) to return to us in 2018.  He has a passion for encouraging students to follow Jesus.  He also enjoys reading, keeping up with Baylor football, playing disc golf, and eating lasagna.  Fun fact about Michael -- he's the only staff member at HCF who can ride a unicycle.

    outreach PASTOR  

    Shawn coordinates the jail & prison ministries. He has a passion for sharing the good news and giving hope to those looking for answers.  He loves Jesus, Mandi, eating, and working out (in that order).  Shawn also loves leading worship and playing drums on the worship team.



    Dan was a career IBMer when God radically transformed this pagan hippy into a man on fire for Jesus!  Dan is a self-described "Spirit-filled, Bible believing, rational charismatic, Christian apologist."  He and his wife Leonora love sailing and spending time camping in their fifth wheel.  He has a fantastic collection of guitars and longhorns he'd be glad to show you if you visit him out at his ranch.  Dan's true passion is helping people unite their heart and mind in worship of Jesus.
