My Name is Aaron Davis..
I am the Online Campus Pastor for OasisChurch.Tv (Check us out online)
I am an Ordained Minister of 13 years with a bit of a different perspective considering the fact that I too have tattoo's and piercings. Some would say that I am a bit of a dichotomy but I am who I am...
My mission statement is to Touch the Untouchable and Reach the Unreachable...this statement is not intended to label anyone per se' only to acknowledge that there are many in the church world who are not willing to reach or acknowledge those who do not fit within the parameters of their Church's comfort zone...I, on the other hand, tend to be drawn to the people who some christian's may have difficulty identifying with.
I am repeatedly asked what my spiritual background is...I am absolutely a Christian! I do not consider myself religious and really buck the whole legalism thing...I have been a Youth Pastor, an Associate Pastor, a traveling Evangelist, a street Evangelist, a church elder, A worship leader, on the board of trustees in one of the most respected ministries in the US, and am now A Myspace SPIRITUAL TRAINER!. I have fed the homeless, worked with inner-city youth, ministered to Gang Members and Drug Addicts, preached in other countries, and am again currently pursuing an evangelistic ministry both state side and abroad (feel free to contact me to arrange speaking engagements)
I love my wife, my family, and my friends. I LIVE LIFE...I REFUSE TO JUST EXIST...
When this earth suit quits working I will know without a doubt that I used it to LIVE LIFE...
I CAN'T STAND SHOPPING but love malls and airports as they are places where you can sit back and observe/admire/appreciate/and sometimes chuckle at how differently God has created each one of us...There is something exceptional about everyone if you are willing to take the time to find it...
I prefer to see the cup half full, trying to always see the best in situations...(One has to ask themselves, Is today a CRAPPY DAY OR JUST FERTILIZER FILLED! HA!)...In reality, I've seen gruesome tragedy with my own eyes, I've watched people die, I've seen horrible poverty, I've had to observe with my eyes the horrific things that people have done to children, and I've had to walk through more blood than I care to remember (including my own when an attempt on my life was made)...although my experiences would probably jade most people negatively, this perspective keeps me constantly reminded of how good that I really have it.
Here's a little info you may not know about me, I spent 8 years of my life as a law enforcement officer serving as a D.A.R.E Officer, School Resource Officer, Detective Sergeant (criminal investigations-working everything from vandalism to homicide), a S.W.A.T team member, and being awarded Officer of the Year in 2002...an attempt was made on my life in the line of duty Dec 06' that forced a medical retirement. I am also a published author of two books, The Spirit of Religion and Love Thy Neighbor
