John Herrington serves as the Senior Executive Pastor of Hill Country Bible
Church Austin. With almost 30 years of ministry experience, John most
recently directed the Church Plant Training Center at Hill Country. During
his seven years serving in that capacity, the church increased its number of
plants in Greater Austin from three to 27. John’s previous experience in
campus ministry, church planting and as a lead pastor reflects his lifelong
desire to engage people far from God.
John helps lead a thriving church community with the vision of reaching
every man, woman and child in Greater Austin with the life-changing reality
of Jesus Christ. He also serves as an associate with Christ Together Greater
Austin, part of a national network of churches whose aim it is to reach the
most heavily populated cities in the U.S. with the gospel.
John studied English Literature at Baylor University and Theology at
Southwestern Baptist Seminary. He has been married to Angela, a
university level mathematics instructor, for 38 years. They have four grown
children and three grandchildren dispersed between Omaha, Austin,
Boston and Dallas. John considers himself a boring man who likes to read a
lot but doesn’t and hates to work out but does. He is older than he looks
and smarter than he sounds.
