Pastor Aaron Hayworth
Rev. Aaron Hayworth and his wife, Maggie Ivancic, are from Morganton, NC, where they met in high school. Aaron came to pastoral ministry through a powerful experience in the United Methodist campus ministry during his undergraduate study. After discerning a passion for pastoral ministry and Christian discipleship, Aaron attended seminary where he studied Christian Education, led music in the seminary chapel, and participated in Covenant Discipleship groups. Aaron was called to the work of church planting through a conviction that holy friendship and evangelism are vital parts of the church’s future. Aaron enjoys reading, podcasting, cooking, and spending time with his wife and their two cats (Sam and Frankie) and their dog (Ladybird).
Tom Dwight has been involved in Music Ministry for over 20 years. While living in Hawai’i with his wife, Beth, he became the Director of Music for Holy Trinity Catholic Church in 1998. After deciding to move back to the mainland to be closer to family in 2003, he took the same position at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Raleigh. In 2010, he left St. Raphael to explore other career opportunities but continues to fill-in regularly and help out at other area churches. Tom is thrilled to be leading the Music Ministry at Church at Six Forks and working with this loving a faith-filled congregation! He lives in Raleigh with his wife and two teenage daughters.
