Aaron Keyes: Leading People in Worship
In this episode of Step Into the Story Podcast, Phil talks with Aaron Keyes—singer-songwriter, worship pastor, teacher, husband, father—about leading people into worship, raising up a generation of men and women who are worship leaders because of their godliness (not just their giftedness), and how he needs the Word of God in this fleeting, ephemeral world.
After graduating from Furman University in 2000, Aaron married Megan and began leading worship at Grace Snellville. Buddy Hoffman and Aaron planted Grace Midtown a few years later. The next 15 years saw Aaron and his band writing songs regularly, recording occasionally, traveling internationally, and the beginnings of their worship school called 10,000 Fathers. Aaron graduated from Northern Seminary in 2018 and began serving as a worship pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs in 2020.
Megan spent many years as an elementary school teacher and in leadership of the prayer ministry at Grace Snellville. Her heart is to see people step into fullness and freedom through healing prayer ministry and radical hospitality. Megan’s currently in graduate school studying counseling, mental health, and psychology. Megan helps lead culturally, organizationally, and operationally at 10,000 Fathers.
Aaron and Megan are the parents of four boys—Cooper, Judah, Nyle, and Linen.
