Planter Profile: Aaron Snow
Name: Aaron and Morgan Snow
Organization: Intentional Gatherings
Tell us a little about your family: I am 26, and my beautiful wife Morgan is 24. She’s an incredible mother slash part time hair stylist on E. 6th St. Our daughter, Eliza, is 14 months old, and cracks us up. We’re expecting baby number two sometime in May, which is fun. We’re a simple bunch, love the outdoors, and being with friends and family. It is our goal to model for others a simple lifestyle of discipleship and birthing new spiritual families as a natural outflow of life.
What geographical area are you focusing on? Personally, we’re focused on wherever we live, and we just bought a house in St. John’s where we’ll be moving shortly. Intentional Gatherings is focused on equipping students and other lay people to make disciples and plant new churches in their own context.
What were you doing before Austin? We started our first church/network in Ft. Worth, Tx., and also spent two years in Las Vegas.
What has drawn you to the Austin area? One reason is to be closer to our families in DFW. We also want to walk with some people who have gone through our training and started new churches here in Austin. They have become “spiritual family”. We are also here to make disciples and start a new “spiritual family” in our context.
What do you hope to see in the next 12 months? We recently sent everyone out in pairs to plant the seeds of a new “spiritual family” (church) in their contexts. We’d love to see up to 5 new churches birth as we see lives transformed by the Gospel. We’d also love to see a new community of believers birthed in our new neighborhood.
How can others be praying for your work? Pray that we will have the ability to hear God’s voice and obey in the midst of opposition, for grace in communicating what God is doing in fresh new ways, for fresh vision from Holy Spirit and disciples who make disciples.
