Associate Executive Director, [email protected]

Aaron Stokes graduated from Appalachian State University in 2001 with a major in Information Systems. After working for seven years as an Information Technology manager, (where he also served as a volunteer with Youth For Christ), he went back to school at Columbia International University, where he graduated in 2011 with a Master’s degree in Biblical Exposition.  Aaron is married to Anna, and they have two daughters, Katherine and Caroline.

Aaron came on staff with YFC in January of 2012 as a Campus Life Area Coordinator. In the summer of 2015 he transitioned into his new role as Executive Director. His interests include anything having to do with sports (playing or watching), reading (especially history), and spending time with his family!


  • In Aaron’s own words: “God’s call to ministry came to me through one verse, Isaiah 26:8, ‘…your name and your renown are the desire of our souls.’ God used this verse to plant a desire in my heart to share with youth both who he is and what he has done for us. I am excited about the opportunities I will have through YFC to share the good news of the gospel, for his renown.”
