Leading Those You Live With

The majority of us do not live alone. We live with our parents, our spouses, our children, our roommates etc. Due to this fact, we are given an enormous opportunity to invest spiritually in those around us. Most of us don’t. And if we do, it’s very minimal and for the most part not very […]


This past Monday (October 8th), my second son Aaden Sage Proffitt would have turned 4. I cannot even believe that it has been 4 years since I held that little guy. Since then we’ve seen two more children birthed, as well as a church here in Tampa. That is a lot of births in 4 […]

Wind Back in My Sails

After a nine month hiatus, I am going to attempt to revive this blog. I know, I know. You are probably saying, “Haven’t you said this before, Aaron?” The answer to that is “yes”. There is a (in my estimation) pretty darn legitimate reason for this. The past nine months of my life have been […]

Special Music at Church – “I’ve Given Up the Beer”

Because I have literally been in ministry now for 33 years (my entire life in case you are wondering), I have been able to see the best and the worst of the “special music” time at church, traditionally known as the offertory, although not exclusive to just the offertory. I have many stories that all […]

200th post

    As I was preparing to write my blog today, I noticed that this is my 200th post. I started this blog in June of 2007 and even though I have taken long seasons off  from writing anything, my hope is that I have used it as a means to communicate what’s going on […]

Mini-Me Mondays (#1 – Asher Shakes His Golden Locks)

My Monday posts from here on out will consist of a funny story/picture/video from my 2 sons that I capture the previous week. This week’s video happens to come from a few weeks back. Kids go through stages and these stages are often comical. Asher right now is going through a stage where he shakes […]

Weekly Friday Funny #1(Big News in the Proffitt Home)

So my blog has officially been resurrected from the dead this week. My goal is to write 3 posts (minimum) a week.  The content will revolve around (but not be limited to) the following: Monday’s post will be a video and/or story of my crazy kids (Drew – 4; Asher – almost 20 months old); […]

Whetting Your Appetite

Alright, I’m back to blogging. Why haven’t I been blogging for the past 5 months you may ask? Because I’ve been up to a whole lot of following Jesus, husbandry, child rearing, church planting, traveling, getting pregnant again (well, not me but my wife…you know what I mean), preaching, evangelizing, equipping young men, training future […]

Will Power

“Nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” These words are the toughest for me to accept at times when it comes to doing what I do. I am a church planter. I am a hard working church planter at that. I have big dreams for my church plant. I have high expectations because I […]

Insights on Real ManHood

This past Sunday, since it was Father’s Day, I taught on Real ManHood. It was actually pretty enjoyable because there is nothing more fun for me than to poke fun at the male population (which definitely includes myself). I think our people enjoyed it and what was so great about it all was that I […]
