Pastor Aaron was raised in Sacramento, California. His formative years involved homeschool, working the family business, skateboarding, and church.
Church was very important in his life because he did not have much interaction with people outside of his own family. Now, the churches presence in Aaron's life was good in many ways. Though there was one big glaring problem. The problem was, Aaron did not have a relationship with Christ, just his friends.
So, when high school ended, his friends moved on, went to college, just living their lives. So, his connection with the church dissipated. Which led to his college years being plagued with emptiness, hopelessness, and aimlessness.
Aaron attended Boise State University and majored in Psychology. Now, he had a unique view of psychology, his desire to be a psychologist was not really rooted in a desire to help people, but he was hoping psychology would help him figure out who he was personally. Unfortunately, psychology's wisdom had no answers, and it only led to more frustration.
However, during his time in college he was invited to Calvary Chapel Boise. Aaron walked in and the pastor was teaching through the bible verse by verse. They were in the Gospel of John at the time. The pastor had a straightforward style of teaching. The Word of God being taught like that was something very special. Aaron had never experienced anything like it before. The Holy Spirit used His Word to penetrate Aaron's hungry heart.
And In the year 2000, Aaron gave his life to Christ.
