Aaron Ingle, Assistant Pastor 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.
After graduating from RTS with his MDiv in May 2017, Aaron was called to be an assistant pastor of men’s ministry and visitor integration at Hope. He loves being a pastor and serving the people of Hope and Charlotte.
In March 2019, Aaron and Sarah had their first daughter May Charlotte Ingle.
Aaron has been influenced greatly by the pastors at Hope, Young Life, Wake Forest RUF, John Piper, Tim Keller, Matt Chandler, Eugene Peterson, Sinclair Ferguson, John Calvin, and many others.
In his free time, Aaron spends most of his time hanging out with his family and friends, playing basketball, working out, reading, and listening to good podcasts and music.
