Pastor Aaron and his family joined Elma Alliance Church in ministry in June of 2009. A graduate of Regent College (Master of Divinity) in Vancouver, B.C, Aaron is familiar with the South Sound from his years serving as Guest Services Directior at Black Lake Bible Camp in Olympia, Washington and manager of Family Christian Stores in West Olympia. Aaron enjoys reading and writing, the Seattle Seahawks (through thick and thin), and eating large amounts of fresh baked treats. Feel free to bring some by!

Aaron married Michele on May 17th, 1997, and they have two daughters, Shaela and Janae. Michele has worked as both a dental assistant and a stay-at-home mom, and enjoys a good book, spending time outdoors, and shopping for bargains. Lots of shopping.
