Aaron Stiner - Pastor

Aaron Stiner is Senior Pastor at Ascension Life Church. He approaches ministry with one guiding question, “What’s the point?” What’s the point of the life? What’s the point of Church? What’s the point of this thing called Christianity? Because we all know we weren’t called by God to lives without purpose. The point of life, the Church, and Christianity is to fulfill the Great Commission, and that call isn’t just for the few, the professional ministers, that call is for the whole Body of Christ, every member doing their part. So, you can expect to be encouraged and challenged to live out your call. If you want to be the Church and not just go to Church give ALC the opportunity to invest into you.” Pastor Aaron


Aaron is married to Alissa and they have 2 children, Owen, Lydia, and are expecting their 3rd in July. They love spending time together, swimming, grilling out, and sharing the love of Jesus. (but not necessarily in that order)

Praise and Worship Team

Our worship services are typically led by five core members two of which lead musically and administratively. Planning and preparation are a big part of what we do from week to week, yet we also understand that submitting to the direction of the King is the most important.


Our worship time is a combination of hymns, classics, and contemporary styles of music. Yet we also believe there are other forms of worship such as; praise, prayer, interpretation, offering, dance, submission by the raising of hands, prophetic words, healing, receiving, clapping, and shouting with joy that are often incorporated in our services to celebrate the Lord and all that he has accomplished for us.  


If you are interested in hearing more or have any questions please contact one of our worship Ministers.  Jim Ankrom  937-533-0548 -or- Micah Selby 937-248-6608.
