Aaron has served as pastor of Maranatha Bible Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, since 1999. He is a graduate of Emmaus Bible College which is also where he met his wife, Beth.

While Aaron has always had a passion for preaching the Word, his commitment to building a culture of worship-based prayer at Maranatha was ignited when he stepped into a prayer session facilitated by Daniel Henderson at the Moody Bible Institute Pastors’ Conference more than a decade ago. In the years since, Aaron has participated in prayer coaching with The 6:4 Fellowship and initiated several ongoing weekly prayer groups within the church and also with fellow pastors in the community.

Aaron and Beth have been blessed with six children, two of whom are married, and also have two (soon to be three) grandchildren. In his free time, Aaron enjoys gardening, watching his kids play ball, and serving as the athletics PA announcer for a local high school.

Aaron currently serves as a Regional Leader with The 6:4 Fellowship, as well as a Renewal Coach for The 6:3 Discipleship.
