Traders Point Christian Church,
“Masterful” was the only word in the e-mail I sent to Aaron on a Monday morning to comment on his sermon of the day before. It was the best word I could think of to express appreciation and to convey encouragement. Actually, there are many Monday mornings that this procedure could be repeated without becoming trite or overused.
Aaron’s teaching is relevant while firmly grounded in Jesus and his story . . . lengthy but highly engaging . . . delivered without notes yet extremely well-prepared. He is straightforward but disarming . . . bold but kind. The mature are fed, newborn believers are nurtured along, and searchers are enticed by the content and delivery.
Aaron is a disciple maker who is himself a disciple. He is a teacher and yet a student—a leader and still a follower. He recognizes his strengths but relies on the support of a strong team of staff and elders. Aaron studies thoroughly, knows his audience well, and connects easily. He relates to churched and unchurched people by remaining current and culturally relevant and by possessing a good and proper use of humor. While Traders Point’s statistics continue to swing upward, Aaron’s measurement of growth is changed lives.
In my opinion, Aaron Brockett is one of the finest communicators of God’s Word in the nation today.
