Who Are You? Aaron Visser
Who is your employer? Fellowship Baptist Church.
What do you do there? I’m the Associate Pastor at the Fellowship Baptist Church.
What do you like most about your job? What I like most about the job is just building a good relationship with everyone. You know who they are and understanding their stories.
Where are you from? Chatham, Ontario. It’s down near Windsor.
How long have you lived here in Drumheller? Since September of 2016.
What brought you to the valley? Mainly the job but my wife’s family is all from this area as well. When we were in Ontario, we tried to move back to Alberta but we didn’t know if it would be Drumheller or not. The church ended up being open for the position so it all worked out.
What is your top travel destination? It would have to be to Rome to see the colosseum and the catacombs. I’m very big into old buildings and history.
If you could travel through time, when and where would you like to visit? I’m not only a history nerd but I’d like to visit Canada during the John A. MacDonald time. I think it’d be cool to. I had to pick one that would be where I would go.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you bring with you? I’d bring lint to start a fire. The christian thing I should say is bring my bible or at least some type of reading material. It’d get really boring – and a fishing lure so that I can fish.
Choose one thing to eat for the rest of your life? If I had to pick something I would have to pick my Oma’s dutch stew. It’s dutch pea soup and it’s delicious. It’s nutritious so you get everything.
Do you have any favourite books? My favourite book that I like is Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer. It’s the book that’s changed my life. It’s one of those ones that you can just read over and over again.
If you had a superpower what would you have? You know I’ve always been in constant conflict with that question in my brain. It’s either between flying and being invisible. I think i’d like to be invisible when it comes down to it – it’d be fun. Just to play practical jokes.
Lastly, do you have any wise words of wisdom for everyone? Honour your mother and father and never let anger go down. Respect each other basically.
