Aarek began his work at Great Oaks in the Spring of 2010. After 9 years working as the Youth and Family Minister, Aarek transitioned and began working with our college and young adult group. With experience in both ministry and education (Aarek taught middle school for several years, and now works with the graduate education program for Freed-Hardeman University), Aarek is well equipped to reach out to kids and adults of all types. He truly loves God and has a heart for helping others grow in all aspects of their lives. He and his wife, Jennifer have 3 kids (Seth, Phoenix, & Audreyna).
