Pastor Aaron entered full time ministry 15 years ago and absolutely loves talking about Jesus.  More than a decade ago he married his best friend and now they have 4 beautiful kids: Elisha, Arya, Emma, and Adley.  Aaron often draws from his own experiences and examples from everyday life to illustrate Biblical truths that point straight to Jesus.  He whole-heartedly believes in the power of stories and of course the blood of Jesus. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony (their stories)…”

My walk with the Lord began in 2002 when I was Baptized at Delaware Valley Christian Church by Pastor Brian.  It was the beginning of an amazing journey that has brought myself and my family to meet so many wonderful people. I met my husband Dean in 1993  and we were married  1997.  We have been blessed with 2 wonderful boys, Nolan and Nicholas, ages 11 and 9. We love spending time as a family outdoors, sports, movies and at the beach! We became part of The Bridge many years ago.  An amazing God loving woman that many of you know well, Patricia Savage, took amazing care of both of our boys in the daycare. She faithfully invited us to attend service and we finally accepted her offer. We are forever grateful for her serving heart and love to our family and most importantly for being a warrior for Jesus and reaching out to us.  We have been members of the church through many changes since 2008 and I am now blessed to be part of the incredible team here at The Bridge!

Children's Ministry Director


Aloha! My name his Martha and I have the pleasure of being mom to 4 amazing children, 1 son, and 3 daughters. My journey into church ministry began 13 years ago, right after Aaron and I got married in May, 2004. I served in many capacities from nursery, pre-school, elementary, to youth ministries.  Most of my jobs outside of church have involved some sort of child care, from nannying for 5 years, to working as a junior gym coach, then being a Lead teacher at Discovery zone Learning Center, to now working in Elementary and Middle school fundraising. I think its safe to say that children and their care has always been something of importance to me and something I enjoy. I am so excited to see where God is going to lead and what he as in store for our Bridge Kids!

Hi! I came to Jesus when I was 14, thanks to a music teacher who invited me to a Bible study. Since then, I've found a talent for writing and I use it for the work of the Kingdom. My family and I have attended this church for 35 years. I am both a college professor and a high school teacher. I love to knit, read, and write! See me if you'd like to learn to knit.
