Pastor Aaron came to faith in Christ at seven years old (1989). While continuing a relationship with God throughout his remaining childhood years, a profound bold commitment ensued in the midst of his senior year in high school in 1999. Aaron met his wife for the first time at Borders Bookstore in Whitehall while she was reading J.I. Packer’s classic Knowing God. They were engaged 2½ months later.
Aaron holds a B.S. in Geography and Physical/Environmental Science from Penn State and a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Karen has a B.S. in Education from West Chester University.
Coming to Whitehall
Aaron has served in pastoral capacities in Texas and Pennsylvania. As a Whitehall High School grad, he is passionate about our community. The Smiths have been attending our Whitehall Church since November 2010. The church hired him as Interim Pastor of Youth and Young Adults in February 2012. In April 2013, he began a new role, heading up the ministry of Northern Lehigh BFC.
Aaron and Karen have four children: Adalie (2007), Deakon (2009), Grayson (2013), and Kaiya (2016).
