Upon graduating from college, he headed off for his first full time ministry position at Turners Chapel Free Will Baptist Church (Butler, GA) as Associate Pastor with primary responsibilities for youth ministry. Pastor Aaron has been at Calvary since September 2007. Aaron is married to Leslie Walley Baldridge. Family hobbies include traveling, cooking, mystery novels, playing with the dog. The Baldridge’s make their home in North Columbus. They have a 3 year old Yorkshire Terrier named Joey that is spoiled rotten.
Calvary is blessed to be served by two deacons. Each family in the church is assigned a deacon who is available for assistance as needed.
