We are pleased and blessed to have Reverend Larry Garcia serving Hill Country Christian Church as our Senior Minister. Larry has been associated with HCCC since its early formation days. Rev. Garcia calls himself a "second-career pastor", because he does double-duty by serving our congregation and also running a law practice in San Antonio. Before coming to HCCC, Larry completed extended interim ministries of one to three years at Del Rio Christian Church in Del Rio, Texas; Genesis Christian Church in Converse, Texas; and Hyde Park Christian Church in Austin, Texas.
Larry's sermons are Bible based with background to illuminate the context of the scripture and contemporary stories to illustrate the messages. Larry is married to Linda Garcia. They met at church camp and have been married since 1966. Their grandchildren, Merlin and Gavin Garcia, often accompany them to church. Larry is a past Chairman of the Board of Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Inc., and of Kid Share, Inc. He is a former board member of Inman Christian Center and a past president of the San Antonio Family Lawyers Association. He is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a Certified Children's Ad Litem, and a Credentialed Family Law Mediator. Larry received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Houston in 1971, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree in 1979. He has been licensed as an Interim Minister to the Bluebonnet Area of the Christian Church since 1998 and completed his Master of Divinity Degree from Phillips Theological Seminary in 2013. He was ordained by the Christian Church Disciples of Christ in July of 2013.
