About Pastor Preston - I was born into a Pastor’s Home in Effingham, Illinios to Jim and Betty Jo Preston. I was born again on February 13th, 1983 at 8 years of age. My fifth grade year, my father answered the call to Pastor in Cortez, Colorado. While attending summer Camp at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp in Sedalia, Colorado, at age 11 I surrendered to preach. Immediately following my graduation from High School in Cortez, CO, I attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO, where I completed most of my undergraduate studies. While At BBC, I met my wife Lisa, and we were married in the Summer of 1995. I later received my diploma from Heartland Baptist Bible College in OKC, OK. Shortly after Bible College, I went on Staff at Liberty Baptist Church in Lewisville, TX where I served on staff for eight years. In December of 2006, I answered the call to Pastor in Windsor, CO. After serving there for 9 years, in September of 2015, the Lord called us to Bethany Baptist Church. God has blessed us with 4 children, Karisa, Kaylee, Keith and Gabe.
Aaron was raised in a wonderful Christian home where he received Christ at the age of fifteen after struggling with that decision for several years. Just a few months later God confirmed the calling He had on Aaron's life for full time service. As soon as he graduated from High School in San Angelo, TX, he attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO. Upon graduation in 1995, he stayed and worked in his local church for a year until his fiancé graduated the next year. They then interned at Eastland Baptist Church under Bro. Dave Hardy. In February 1997, the Lord moved them to Amarillo, TX where Aaron would serve as youth pastor under Bro. Dale Bigham for the next six years. Arden Road ordained them and sent them out to pastor the Highland Baptist Church in Hobbs, NM. After six and half years, the Lord moved Aaron and his family to Lubbock, TX to pastor the Bethany Baptist Church.
In 2015 when Pastor Dale Bigham retired from pastoring Arden Road for 34 years, the church called Aaron back to pastor the church. God has been good; He has been faithful, and graciously allowed him to work with some of the best people in the world.
Aaron married his best friend, Jerrie, in December of 1995. The Lord has blessed them with seven children: Abigail, Lauren, Emily, John, Josiah, David, and Amber. They are humbled at His goodness, grateful for His blessings, and anticipate His continued work in their lives.
