All Christ-followers are missionaries. We believe that we are to live as exiles, a people sent to a world in need of the Gospel. This is why we exist: to know God and to make Him known.
At Hill Country UT, our mission field in the University of Texas. We are here to engage students with the gospel, equip them to be missionaries on the campus, and empower them to establish Chapters to reach the campus.

Email Matt Moore for more info on how to join one or start your own.
We also partner with other ministries on campus who share our “missional heartbeat.” We call ourselves Renovate UT.
You don’t have to go halfway across the world to be a missionary, you just have to walk outside your dorm room.
