Upon being appointed, Green shared, “It has been a joy and privilege to serve the youth of our CCCU churches for these last several years. Providing quality programming and strengthening the connections between our local youth groups will continue to be a priority for me. I especially want to thank Michael Tipton and the entire General ECY Board for their strategic vision casting and emphasis on youth leader training opportunities.”
Tipton shared, “Aaron is passionate about seeing young people saved, sanctified, discipled, and equipped for ministry. He brings great depth of experience and keen insights on local church youth ministry, youth culture, opportunities and challenges facing youth workers, and denominational ministries. He is well-prepared for this opportunity, and I look forward to his leadership.”
Prior to his ministry at Faith Memorial, Green served as the Pastor of Student Ministries at New Castle 1st Church of the Nazarene in Indiana.
