Hi, I’m Aaron. I’m an apprentice of Jesus Christ,  and my greatest goal in life is to make Him known. I’m a pastor, creativeteacher, and lifelong learner. Currently, I reach people as the founder and director of GoodLion Podcasts, and I serve as the web strategist for CGN. My favorite role is Brooklynn’s husband.

In everything I do, I work to bring innovation, love, kindness, and fun!

Currently one of my favorite places to do ministry is the GoodLion Podcast! Each episode, my good friend Brian Higgins and I work hard to dive deep into theology, culture, church, and discipleship to Jesus. I’ve had some much fun in these conversations, and running this show has continued to push me to be a lifelong learner.

  • The Kingdom Advances Through Love, Not Fear – GoodLion Theology Class #5
    by Aaron Salvato on March 17, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Fear is the enemy of love. The idols of safety and security can push us to live the Christian life from a posture of fear. If we are to advance the Kingdom of God, we must realize that we are called to a radical way of love that is courageous and bold. In the final episode of our class on "Advancing the Kingdom", Aaron Salvato reminds us of the call on Christians to live a life of courageous love...

  • Waging Peace on Social Media: Lessons From The Comment Section
    by Aaron Salvato on March 8, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    In an age where tech dominates our lives, we spend so much time on social media. Christians need to face the facts. Whether we like it or not, social media is a big part of the public square of the day, and for the Christian called to represent Jesus and to help point others to Him, in many situations, social media can either make or break our Christian witness. In this episode, Aaron discusses le...

  • Simple Obedience, Not Escapism | Advancing the Kingdom – GoodLion Theology Class #5
    by Aaron Salvato on February 23, 2022 at 5:24 am

    This world is not our home. It was never intended to be. We are pilgrims here on earth and we should live as such. The problem that has arisen is that many Christians have become escapists instead of pilgrims. They see the world as a...

  • The Kingdom Advances Through Missionaries, Not Through Separating from Sinners – GoodLion Theology Class #4
    by Aaron Salvato on February 10, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    In the New Testament, Christians are called to be in the world but not of the world. In other words, we are called to live in society and interact with others while maintaining our distinctiveness. When we turn away from those who are broken or make choices that are contrary to God's word, we have made the grave mistake of ceasing being a light in dark places. Too many have a separatist mindset. C...

  • The Kingdom Advances Not by Force, But Through the Church – GoodLion Theology Class
    by Aaron Salvato on January 26, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    How does a Kingdom advance normally? Through the sword. Violence, war, and bloodshed. Jesus' Kingdom is much different. The Kingdom of Heaven does not advance through the sword, but rather through something much more powerful: preaching and the Gospel. It advances in this way: by converting one soul after another. In the Gospels, Jesus never employs violence to achieve his ends. His life and minis...

  • The Kingdom Advances In Our Hearts, Not Our Self-Interests – GoodLion Theology Class
    by Aaron Salvato on January 20, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    There is a dangerous tendency today to make the Kingdom of Heaven about what we need, or want. It is not about us. The Kingdom is about Him. He should be in the center of everything we do as His followers. Self-interest is the great enemy of godliness. It's a sin we commit every day, in all kinds of ways. This is why we have to be so careful about it. We take this mentality to our approach regardi...
