Aaron Greenwood, Children and Family Pastor
My name is Aaron Greenwood and my wife is Seana. I am from Oklahoma and she is from Texas (she roots for Oklahoma though 🤣). We have 4 awesome kiddos: Ava, Emery, Alex, and Everett. My family and I strive to be intentional in our relationships. We believe it is the key to impacting people’s lives. If we cannot meet people where they are then we cannot reach the potential God has for us to bring glory to His kingdom. Our family mission is Love God, Love People, Change the World.
