Role at New Hope:

Creative Director

 

About Aaron:

Aaron moved to Effingham with his wife, Bethany, in 2014 to join the New Hope team. He loves creative things (graphics, video, stage design, etc), but don't be surprised to see him spending long hours on a shuffleboard court. Aaron double-majored in Philosophy and Religion / Business Administration at Olivet Nazarene University, where he also met Bethany, a nurse at Saint Anthony Memorial Hospital. They lived in Peoria for 3 years before returning to Effingham, where Aaron grew up.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NEW HOPE CHURCH?

WHEN YOU HAVE A FREE DAY, WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

"Play any sport or game. For some reason, competition is relaxing to me whether it be an intense game of Euchre or a pickup game of soccer.... or a Saran wrap war (wrap yourself in Saran wrap and try to knock each other down)."
