Aaron & Jess Ninaber

Lead Pastors

For over 10 years,  Pastors Aaron and Jess Ninaber have served in full-time pastoral ministry at Catch The Fire, first as youth and worship pastors and now, as Lead Pastors. Their hearts have a passionate focus on the presence of God and seeing people encounter His transforming presence. Aaron trained at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in California before being called to serve in Raleigh, NC, where He discovered His calling to The Church and pastoring. Jess attended the Harvest School with Iris Global, where she was burdened for the mission field before attending the University of North Carolina. It was here that God called her into “the mission field of the West” and gave her a heart for the local church and the lost right here in our city.

With conviction to share the Gospel and the Kingdom of God, they have laid down their lives to pastoring and discipling a generation of people on fire for God. Aaron and Jess are happily married with four children, Jude, Zoe, Selah, and Valor.
