Hi I'm Aaron Bujnowski

I am a Healthcare Executive. I love to run. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three children. As a child, I lived in Savannah, Georgia. However, my family moved to Nashville, Tennessee just before high school. I went to college at Brigham Young University where I received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Chemical Engineering. After working for several years, I went back to school for an MBA at the University of Texas at Austin. I decided to change careers, and now I lead strategy development at a large, non-profit healthcare system. I am married and have two beautiful daughters.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Each of them chose to join the Church because of the testimony they gained through study and prayer. They both encouraged me to seek and to know for myself that I should be a member of the church and to not rely solely on their beliefs. As I have studied and prayed, I have come to know for myself, independent of any other person, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church. I believe that Jesus Christ stands at the head of this church. He guides and directs it affairs. Most importantly, I have a witness that Jesus Christ knows me personally. He understands my needs and wants to help me progress and return to live with Heavenly Father. This gives me the strength to overcome challenges that I face and provides me with the hope that I can find peace even in the darkest times. He is the light that I follow. I am His disciple.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the Bishop of my local congregation or ward. A Bishop is the ecclesiastical leader of the congregation in the same way a pastor or minister is the leader in other Christian denominations. Like all positions in our church, I serve in a lay capacity, which requires me to balance my time between family, work,and church. I have the great privilege of serving our members and of helping them to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I am called to spiritually strengthen individual members and their families. I meet with leaders of our congregation each week as we seek to uplift those who have spiritual or temporal needs. The men and women with whom I serve are faithful disciples who strive to do what the Savior would have them to do. I have learned through my experience as Bishop that the atonement of Jesus Christ can heal any sorrow, can cleanse any sin, and can resolve any problem or tragedy that we might experience. I have witnessed this healing come to many people who are seeking peace.
