Plant Austin | Association of Hill Country Churches

Mission, Vision, and Values


AHCC exists to catalyze a movement of healthy, reproducing churches that saturate Greater Austin with gospel conversations.


We desire to see every man, woman, and child in Greater Austin have repeated opportunities to see, hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Missional Tenacity

…because every person needs repeated opportunities to hear the gospel.
(2 Tim 4:5)

Collaborative Community

…because we can always do more together than we could ever do alone.
(John 17:20-23)

Radical Generosity

…because the mission requires open hands.
(2 Cor 9:6-10)

Strategic Urgency

…because what’s at stake has eternal consequences.
(Matthew 24:42-44)

Kingdom Diversity

…because our movement should reflect our city and our eternal home.
(Revelation 7:9)
