Aaron Shoppa


Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries

Aaron was born and raised in Muscatine, Iowa, and found his way into ministry as a twenty year old college student in campus ministry. In 2007, he graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Humanities, and from there began working in various denominational congregations with youth and family. Wanting to more deeply explore his calling to ministry, Aaron attended the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and earned a Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree with an emphasis in Pastoral Care in 2014. During his time at seminary, he met his wife, Megan, who is a Doctor of Physical Therapy working in outpatient pediatrics. They were married in 2016. Beyond working with children and youth, Aaron and Megan enjoy traveling, cooking together, and hiking during their free time.
