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.
