Aaron Goodro and FamilyAaron Goodro, Pastor

Pastor Aaron Goodro began his ministry with First Baptist Church of Plaistow in June of 2013 and has worked with churches in Southern New Hampshire for over fifteen years. His view of “church” is not associated with a building or an isolated group of people.  Instead, it is a gathering of people who seek to grow in their faith in Jesus while caring for one another and those they interact with in their daily lives.  Aaron works actively towards this end, seeking to help FBC Plaistow be a welcoming congregation to people in all types of life situations.  He values sharing life’s moments, times of joy and times of sorrow, with people in need.  He is always interested in how our life stories coincide with God’s story of grace and mercy.

A native of New England, Aaron is married and has two children.  He is also an avid drummer and percussionist, playing frequently in churches, clubs and theaters in the area.  He can be easily contacted through e-mail (fbcpaaron@gmail.com) or by contacting the church office.
