Meet the Pastors
Pastor Aaron was born and raised in the great state of Ohio. Here he was raised in a covenant home and was taught the foundations of the Christian faith. While in college, the Lord brought his heart back to Him after living his freshman year in a rebellious college lifestyle. From there the Lord began a steady call to the ministry. After college, Aaron moved to Stone Mountain, GA to learn the reformed faith from his grandparents which to this day remains the most influential time in his life. During this time, he met Rachael and within a year they were married. They moved to Charlotte, NC to pursue pastoral ministry at RTS and fell in love with the Carolinas. Now, serving in Lake Wylie, they believe they have found their home.
Aaron enjoys playing sports, music, reading, & coaching his sons sports teams, but the best time he has is going on dates with his wife. Rachael and Aaron have 5 children, Elijah (14), Joshua (13), Caleb (11), Levi (6), and Rebekah Kate (3). You can find any of these children being chased by their mom and dad.
Aaron came to Redeeming Grace (formerly Scherer Memorial) in 2005 as assistant pastor while serving under his mentor and pastor Rick Lindsay until the Lord called him home in 2015 after fighting cancer . He was then called as senior pastor in October of 2015.
