Aaron and his wife Karla met in line for school pictures their Jr year at Lake Stevens High School.    Aaron graduated from Life Bible College (aka Life Pacific University) in 1992 and has been a Foursquare Pastor ever since.   They are immensely proud parents of Aria (18), Christian (20), Alyssa (22), and Angelique (24) {and son-in-law Nate!!}.   Aaron & Karla just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last year!

 

Aaron and Karla have experienced firsthand the healing power of Jesus in their lives and their marriage as they have been intentional to receive healing in small groups, counseling, and personal Holy Spirit encounters.  They envision leading a church where people don't hide their issues, but bring their pain into the healing power of Christ-centered relationships.
