Aaron SabioAaron Sabio grew up with his four brothers and parents in Hawaiian Gardens, CA. In 2008, Aaron began his first semester at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, CA where he dedicated his life to serve God and got involved with at his local church in Temecula (now called, Reliance). After graduating Bible College in the Spring of 2010, Aaron completed a year-long internship at Calvary Chapel Bible Institute- New Zealand where he co-taught Bible College classes, led foreign missions, and helped launch the Bible College into a fully functional extension campus. In 2011, Aaron flew back to Murrieta, CA to complete another year-long internship under the guidance of Rod Thompson. During this internship, Aaron continued to help oversee his local youth group, lead worship, start two Christian Clubs at two local Middle Schools, and started to work with the On The Edge Youth Discipleship Program. Upon completing this internship in 2013, Aaron was ordained and asked to direct and oversee the On The Edge program, which has grown into a five-week summer program, weekend winter retreat, high school academy, and an adult discipleship program. Aaron currently teaches two Bible College classes at CCBC, is an international columnist for Christian Today in Australia, oversees two middle school Christian clubs, youth pastor, and worship leader. His life & ministry verse is 2 Timothy 2:2 which says, “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” Aaron is currently handing off the ministry responsibilities in Murrieta and is now the Youth Pastor at Calvary Chapel Vista.
