Speaker Spotlight: Aaron Hedges

With the 2015 Family Conference just around the corner, we wanted to spend some time helping you get to know our speakers for this year’s conference by asking them to answer a few questions for us. Here’s the fourth of a series of posts we will be running over the next two weeks leading up to the conference on April 18.

Breakout Session – Biblical Counseling and Discipleship in the Family

Aaron has been the pastor of student ministries at Temple Baptist Church in Portsmouth, Ohio since 2009. He has earned two undergraduate degrees from Cedarville University in Youth Ministry and Christian Education and is currently pursuing a Masters in Biblical Apologetics from Bible Baptist Seminary. Seen above is Aaron, his wife Alicia, and their beautiful daughter Ellie.

What do you feel is the most pressing issue for the Christian family today?

I would describe it as the spiritual weakening of the Christian family.  In my observations, this is happening in three primary areas: 1) The failure of many Christian fathers to spiritually lead their home, 2) The failure of many Christian parents to spiritually disciple their children and 3) The failure of many Christian families to seek the Kingdom of God first – particularly when determining how to invest their time and financial resources.

Why do you feel this kind of conference is important for our region?

Our region is experiencing these Christian family breakdowns along with much of the rest of our country and is in desperate need of a spiritual revival within the Christian families that reside here.

Which conference session (other than your own) are you most excited about?

I personally would like to hear the session on making the corporate worship service practical – especially if this pertains to whole families finding successful ways to worship together at church.
