Meet The Grace Church Leadership Team

AARON SYVERTSEN
Senior Pastor

Aaron joined the staff in July 2015, entering into his first full-time ministry role. He became the Senior Pastor on January 1, 2017. He worked as a financial analyst at a Wall Street firm since 2011 before answering the call into pastoral ministry. His passion and burden, which God has increasingly stirred in his heart in recent years, has revolved around proclaiming and living in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the context of the local church. Aaron is a 2010 graduate of The College of New Jersey. He married his wife, Rochelle, in 2012 and they have two children, Kaden and Brinley.
