Mac Richard, with his bride Julie, is the founding Pastor of Lake Hills Church. Mac and Julie established LHC in 1997 out of a calling to redefine church for the city of Austin and beyond. They believe deeply in the unique power of the local church to change lives and unite people. Mac is a passionate communicator, creative thinker, and highly practical teacher.
Recognizing the opportunity that the church has to develop Christ-centered leaders in the home, community, and marketplace, Mac founded Spur Leadership in 2009. Since then, the organization has impacted thousands of leaders from all corners of the country through conferences, professional development luncheons, and networking events.
Mac and Julie have been married since 1991 and have two children, Emily and Joseph.
