Pastor Aaron was raised in Sacramento, California for much of his life. His formative years involved homeschool, working in the family business (mowing lawns), skateboarding, and church. Church was a big part of his social life. Actually, outside of Church he had little social interaction. For him church was little more than a social club.
And because his relationship with Christ was not serious soon After high school Aaron grew disenfranchised by the church. His friends moved on with life, went to college, moved away, grew distant. So, without a real relationship with Jesus, Aaron found himself empty hopeless, aimlessly moving through life.
Wanting to be a counselor, Aaron went to Boise State University majoring in Psychology. The reason he wanted to be a Psychologist was because he felt Psychology was the best way to help hurting people and also because he wanted to figure himself out. It was a fruitless effort on both fronts.
The light was turned on for Aaron when he was invited to Calvary Chapel Boise’s college group. The pastor was teaching through the book of John and it was simple, straight to the point teaching. The word of God being taught this way was something Aaron had never experienced before. It was very fulfilling and enriching. The word of God being taught that way was what brought "The Light" to Aaron's life.
In the year 2000 Aaron gave his life to the Lord.
