LEAD PASTOR Rev. Aaron J. Suber, B.A., M.Div.
My name is Aaron Suber, and I am the pastor at Christ the Redeemer. My wife Lisa and I moved to the Kansas City area in 2016 from Mississippi where we both grew up. We have two boys, Ethan (4) and Jack (1). I received my undergraduate degree in Communications from Mississippi State University and my Masters of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. In 2017, I was ordained as a pastor in the PCA.
I have had the opportunity to serve as High School Bible teacher for Heritage Christian Academy from 2016-2020 as well as serve as a youth director and Assistant Pastor for Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Overland Park during the same years. At the beginning of 2018, I started regular preaching supply at what would become Christ the Redeemer church.
Outside of church activities, I enjoy strength training, riding bikes, target shooting, and the outdoors. I also have a deep love for sitting down and playing board games with friends or am just as content with a good book, a strong cup of coffee, and deep theological discussion.
Feel free to reach out to me:
Christ the Redeemer is governed by a board of elders (“Session”), consisting of lay (ruling) elders in Lee’s Summit, together with a supervising body of additional ruling elders and two pastors (teaching elders) from our planting church Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Overland Park.
The elders are voted into their office by the church members, according to the biblical qualifications described in Titus and 1 Timothy. Christ the Redeemer’s elders serve as the shepherds of the church and look after members’ general spiritual care. They also oversee the preaching and instruction of the Word of God, and the administration of the sacraments.
Along with elder, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) recognizes the biblically-identified church office of deacon. Our CTR deacons, as per Acts 6, superintend the physical needs of the church, oversee the care of the property, and also serve as ministers of mercy to those who have special material needs within the body.
