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.
Damian has lived in Raleigh since he was 10 years old, with his parents and 2 younger sisters. In 2013, Damian graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science. After college, Damian moved back to Raleigh and lives with his cat (Beans) and his dog Odie, named after his favorite football player Odell Beckham Jr.
Damian has always had a passion for church ministry as he grew up attending church his whole life. Damian started volunteering at church in High school with the Youth Group Band playing guitar and bass guitar. Damian later moved on to playing guitar, bass, drums, keys, and singing with the adult band at his home church in Wake Forest. After graduating college, Damian decided to use the skills provided to him to give back to God and his people, working for various churches with their music, social media, video editing, tech support, graphic designing, and even running Zoom church services in the crazy year of 2020.
Damian is always interested in learning new things and always looking for an adventure. Aside from the church, Damian loves playing music with his best friends, playing soccer, riding mountain bikes, and watching sports games (Go Barcelona, Miami Heat, and New York Giants!). Damian is also working in obtaining different health certifications and licenses, in order to have careers in both of his passions, creative and health fields.
