Meet the Pastor

Pastor Aaron Smith began his childhood in Southern California, but as a young man his family relocated to the coastal area of Washington State. In his early 20s he achieved a major personal goal of becoming a firefighter and had a successful 15 year career. However, an injury to his left shoulder became a significant turning point in his life. God used a challenging situation to lay the groundwork for transition from extinguishing fires as a firefighter, to igniting spiritual fires in people’s hearts as head pastor of The Rock Calvary Chapel in Punta Gorda, Florida. 
 
Pastor Aaron is married to Robbyn Smith who has been a leader in many of the churches ministries including worship, children’s ministry and women’s ministry. Their family is completed by their daughter Elliana.
