Welcome to Pastor Aaron's Personal Page
Please support my call to serve as a missionary with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)!
You can join me on this journey as I accompany our global companions in Bolivia. I belong to one of 118 missionary households serving on behalf of the ELCA throughout the world.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bolivia is a vibrant, living community of faith, and perhaps includes the highest percentage of indigenous peoples in any mainline church body. Our ministry is working to develop education to raise up leaders for the Church here—leaders who will serve as pastors for congregations, stewards of the earth, healers of Bolivia's abject poverty, and evangelists to bring joy to others through the Good News.
I am convinced that one day soon, these members of God's beloved community will be coming to our part of the Church, to lift up God's Good News in the United States and other parts of the global north. We are called to equip the saints for ministry here, and they will be called just the same to our part of the Church Whatever the case is, this work benefits us all, as the whole Body of Christ in the world!
My fundraising goal is to raise at least $4,000 from people like you, and you can support me with a gift today. Through your donation, you will join me and those I walk alongside to carry out the vital work of God's global church by witnessing to Christ's love in word and deed.
Thank you for being part of this important work, and thank you for your support — every gift truly matters.

The ELCA’s Approach to Global Mission
As part of a global Lutheran community, the ELCA gratefully receives the witness of global siblings whose faith, hospitality, resilience and zeal energize us and our own congregations. In response, together our denomination shares our gifts and talents to address the root causes of poverty and hunger, fight malaria and HIV/AIDS, build communities that coexist in peace, and prepare people to preach the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
The average total cost for one missionary household to serve is about $100,000. Each missionary is tasked with raising a minimum of $20,000. The ELCA raises additional funds through generous congregations and individual donors. If more than $100,000 is received, these funds help support other missionaries as they accompany our neighbors around the world.
No matter where or how they serve, every missionary (including me!) needs your prayers, support and gifts to succeed. Will you join me in my journey by giving a gift today? By doing so, you’ll be investing not only in my work but also in helping to grow God's global church.
