Tim Hawks is Lead Pastor at Hill Country Bible Church Austin in Austin, Texas. He planted and pastored a church in Ruston, LA, before coming to Hill Country in 1989. Tim's passion for church planting grew as he saw the need for more spiritually vibrant, missionally minded churches in the Austin area. Since 1996, the Association of Hill Country Churches has planted 29 churches throughout Greater Austin.

Tim is dedicated to partnering with like-minded churches to saturate the city with the gospel of Jesus Christ. By meeting monthly with area pastors and building relationships with other organizations that have a heart for the people of Austin, he has been instrumental in shaping a unified strategy for reaching the city.

He also serves as a member of the directional team for Christ Together, a national network that exists to inspire, galvanize, connect, resource and support the Church in America to communicate and demonstrate the good news of Jesus Christ to almost 315 million Americans.

Tim received his bachelor's degree from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO, and a master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has been married to his wife, Cindy, for 30 years, and has four grown children. He enjoys hunting, having deep discussions with his kids, and planning strategies for just about anything.
