Hi I'm Aaron Hunt

I'm a director of corporate communications. I teach Bible study to 29 high school students weekdays at 6:20 a.m. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm fortunate to have a career that allows me to work with people from a wide range of backgrounds. My wife, Karla, and my four children are the lights of my life. I enjoy longboarding and fly fishing. I volunteer as a guest lecturer in college-level Public Relations classes. I was raised with one sister by a single mom. I love the Central Valley of California. I enjoy being a member of my local community. My wife and I are involved in our children's school. Our membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the driving force in our family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am one person in the worldwide human family. We are all brothers and sisters under the fatherhood of God. He loves us and wants us to help one another live lives of fulfillment and peace. I believe God revelealed himself to Joseph Smith in 1820 in Palmyra, New York. I have read the Book of Mormon and believe it contains the teachings of Jesus Christ. I felt strongly enough about this that I lived for two years in Ecuador as a representative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I spent my time talking with Ecuadoreans about what we believe and serving them through community-based projects like home building, community beautification and English classes. That experience informs my life today. My abilities as a father, husband, and community member are enhanced by my efforts to live the life of a committed follower of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I teach an early morning (6:20 a.m.) religious education course to a group of 29 high school freshmen and sophomores. It's fun and unpredictable. My wife and I attend church each Sunday with our four children six and younger. This means we are the family you have to be patient with while you are trying to listen to the music and sermons. Our children are learning that keeping the Sabbath Day holy is an important part of being a Christian.
