Meet our staff

  • Kim grew up in Buffalo, New York but moved south to escape the cold as soon as she could. She has lived in South Central Texas for over 20 years. She began serving as the pastor of Round Rock Presbyterian Church (RRPC) in August of 2018. Prior to RRPC Kim served as the Associate Pastor of Central Presbyterian Church (CPC) in downtown Austin. Kim began serving CPC as a volunteer in 2010 when she moved to Austin with daughter Samantha (Sam) to begin seminary. In 2012, Kim began The Central Mission, a social service and ministry program for people who are experiencing homelessness and living on a limited income.

    Before attending seminary, Kim worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with at risk youth and their families through Communities in Schools of San Antonio. She also served as the Youth Director of Pipe Creek Presbyterian Church in Pipe Creek, Texas for over a decade. While Kim's ministries have expanded, being with young people is still one of her greatest joys!

    In 2017, Kim married her one sweet love, Nick Smith-Stanley. They have daughter Sam, who is a recent college graduate and son Luke a 9th grader. They are also the proud parents of two cats and two dogs, Frankie, Andy, Lillie and Martha.

    Kim loves to laugh and her favorite pastime is hiking and being in the great outdoors. She loves spending time with her family and playing with her dogs. She loves all kinds of books but has a particular love for memoirs and Harry Potter.

    Kim’s desire for the church is that all people will feel welcomed, included and loved. She believes the church should be a place where we reach out to the hurting world through nurture and care and invite the hurting world back into the church to experience the abundant grace of our loving God.


  • Sarah grew up in the suburbs of Houston and moved to Austin to attend The University of Texas. After receiving her Bachelors of Arts in History and American Studies with a minor in Religious Studies, Sarah spent one year as a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) working at Mercy Community Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Her time spent at Mercy making soup, working in the clothing closet, and developing relationships with members experiencing homelessness was formative in her understanding of Jesus embodied in all persons. Following her service year, Sarah discerned seminary as the next best step and attended Columbia Theological Seminary, a PC(USA) institution in Decatur, Georgia. She received her Master of Divinity and moved back to Texas.

    Sarah met her husband Andrés in the dorms at UT in 2012 and got married in January 2020. They currently live in South Austin with their chihuahua, Frida. Sarah is the youngest of three sisters and her parents still live in Houston. She enjoys reading, thrift shopping, and exploring new towns in Texas. She especially loves playing and making music in group settings. She would be happy to talk about all things Enneagram, sustainability, Marvel, and liberation theology. She is a bit of a sci-fi nerd and loves time travel/space shows like Firefly and Travelers. Sarah needs your help to practice her conversational Spanish, but she’ll get the gist of what you say most of the time. Her favorite prayer and hymn is “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.” She’ll eat anything with dark chocolate or mangos.

    Born in St. Louis, Missouri, the Rev. Jack Lilley earned the B.A. in History at Bryan College (Dayton, TN), the M.A. in Greek and New Testament Studies at Wheaton College (Wheaton, IL), and the Ph.D. in Theology at Marquette University (Milwaukee, WI). Prior to becoming a pastor of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in 2006, he served as an educator and pastor in Venezuela, Mexico, and finally, as instructor of online graduate courses for Latin American pastors and teachers.

    Jack’s ministry in Blackhawk Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. (Northern Illinois) included the organization of a Hispanic congregation in Marengo, Illinois; pastoral support roles at churches in the towns of Oswego and Geneva, Illinois; and primary pastoral responsibility at the Wheatland Presbyterian Church (Plainfield, IL). He retired in 2016 and moved to the Austin area with his wife Esther, where they have joyfully worshiped and labored at the Round Rock Presbyterian Church.

    With an international and multicultural outlook, Jack strives to show both respectful openness to the world’s peoples and faiths, as well as compassionate support to the vulnerable and dispossessed of our society. In the parish, he seeks to encourage and equip people in their faith, while showing special understanding and concern for those who struggle in their faith journey.

Lay leadership

Elders, Deacons & Trustees

Our church's ministry is able to flourish in part because we have so many lay leaders who believe in our vision and work hard to fulfill the mission our Lord has given us here in Round Rock and throughout the world.

THE Trustees

The Board of Advisory Trustees consists of three active members elected by the congregation and is available to provide guidance to the Session on matters related to building/property insurance policies, new construction, review of Bylaws, and what would be defined as "two-way contracts" (those wherein RRPC and another entity have a shared responsibility), etc. Such role is advisory rather than administrative.
