Aaron Ingle, Director of Men’s Ministry & Visitor Integration
Aaron grew up outside of Asheville, NC in a small town called Weaverville, where he spent most of his time playing sports and hanging out with friends. During Aaron’s high school days, he began attending Young Life where he heard the good news of the Gospel. Through this ministry the Lord convicted Aaron of the futility of his accomplishment idol and revealed to him his desperate need of grace.
In 2008, he left there to attend Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. At Wake, Aaron walked on to the Demon Deacons basketball team and subsequently spent much of his time there in the gym. He also became heavily involved in WFU’s campus ministry RUF. Through RUF, Aaron experienced Gospel community for the first time and also met his wife and best friend, Sarah. The two got married in the spring of 2013 and began living in Winston-Salem.
While living in Winston, Aaron worked for several years in the business world before sensing the Lord’s leading for him to attend seminary. In July 2014, Aaron and Sarah moved to Charlotte for Aaron to begin his studies at RTS Charlotte. Shortly after, they began attending Hope.
Aaron has been influenced by John Piper, Tim Keller, Matt Chandler, Young Life, Wake Forest RUF, and many others. In his free time, Aaron enjoys hanging out with his wife, playing basketball, working out, reading, and chasing his dog.
