Our Story

The story of Alamo Hills is another chapter in the larger story that God is writing in our world. It's a story that began at the dawn of creation and we believe God will continue to write that story through our lives.

Ours is a story born out of the mission and vision of a faithful church community called Shepherd of the Hills. The staff and members dreamt up a vision to plant a new church for the glory of Christ in San Antonio’s most vibrant growing community, Alamo Ranch.

One of Shepherd’s pastors, Aaron Tilt worked with the congregation to see and understand the call of the church to multiply herself out for the cause of Christ. During a time of much prayer and discernment, Shepherd zeroed in on one of the fastest growing communities in San Antonio called Alamo Ranch.

Aaron formed our launch team, which includes over 30 committed women, men, kids and teens. Soon after, Shepherd called a lead pastor, Roy Farias, to lead the launch team and begin loving and caring for the Alamo Ranch community. This team meets together monthly for tons of fun, fellowship, prayer, and discerning where and what God is calling us to do.

Alamo Hills Church is joined by the fellowship of an Austin church planting group called the ACTS Church Network.

Our next exciting chapter will happen at THE LAUNCH when we commit to our neighbors to LOVE and embrace everyone, GATHER in small groups and for corporate worship, EQUIP one another in our shared faith, and SCATTER this love to our neighbors and our world!

We cannot wait to see what God has in store for this new church community as we seek to be the visible image of Christ in Alamo Ranch and beyond!
