About My Family

Aaron and Emily are college sweethearts. Meeting in 2011 while leading at their church’s summer camp, they knew it was God’s plan for them to be together (although it took Emily a little convincing). They married in 2013 and are providing foster care and pursuing adoption in the Metro Boston area. They hail from the great state of North Carolina where Emily became a Christian at age 6 and Aaron at age 20. They both attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where Aaron holds a B.A. in middle grade education. He then obtained an MDiv. from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

About My Church Plant

City on a Hill Church Brighton will serve Boston’s northwestern neighborhood of Brighton. Brighton is a dense community of 45,000 residents teeming with college students and young professionals. It is positioned just a few miles from Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and MIT, which makes Brighton a strategic center for reaching college students. Its unique mix of young families, native Bostonians and foreign-born population makes Brighton a vibrant neighborhood and key outpost for gospel impact in the city as a whole.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.


Pray for boldness, endurance and favor as we share the gospel in our community. Pray that as we share the gospel, God will soften hearts and lead people to trust in Jesus. Pray for continued gathering and development of our core team. Pray for God’s provision in resources, facilities and financial partners. Pray that as we foster and adopt little ones, God's grace will be empowering in us and evident through us.


City on a Hill Church is seeking strategic partners as we build our core team and prepare to launch in fall of 2019. We need people who will commit to regular prayer and provision. We need partners to join us in both short-term and long-term capacities.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit sendnetwork.com/PlanterFunding for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
