Aaron Steffen

Aaron has been serving as an Elder at Grace Evangelical Church since 2018. 

Since becoming a member at the church in 2005, Aaron has helped to serve the Lord in many different capacities.  Some of those roles include serving on the Deacon board, Sunday School teacher and currently leading the Prayer ministry.  

  Aaron grew up with a Christian background but gave into his sinful nature when he felt that he would never be good enough or live up to the standards set by the Church.  It wasn’t until after he was married to his wife Kristine that the Lord started to work in both of their lives.  He led them to Grace Evangelical Church, where the Grace of God was revealed to them with solid biblical teachings and through the love shown to them by the congregation.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we

might become the righteousness of God.

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life-not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.
