Just a week away from boarding our flight to Amsterdam on the way to connect with the final leg of our journey to Kigali, our team continues to pull together our variety of assigned details and personal dreams. As we’ve presented our individual motivations and hopes for the trip, we have also listened and learned from our team members. From Aaron, we all catch a glimpse of his quiet confidence born of experience and embellished with intense capacity to achieve his vision.
Aaron Horn is an executive for an oilfield services company and also founded a training and consulting company. Aaron has held a critical role in the startup phase of three separate companies over the past six years.
Aaron is qualified as a mediator and dispute resolution professional in the state of Texas. He has authored several professional papers on operations and leadership and is an experienced public speaker and trainer. Aaron is a combat veteran, a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal, and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. In our team meetings, Aaron is the go-to person as our resource for leadership and business issues.
When asked why he joined the team, Aaron’s response revolved around his respect for others and his heartfelt desire to serve others and to share a common experience.
“African Leadership And Reconciliation Ministries and Made in the Streets Ministry each serve noble purposes, educating and assisting people in unfortunate circumstances. In doing so, they shine the light of God’s grace. I’m humbled and heartened to play a small role in shining that light,” Aaron began.
“Emerson said, ‘In my walks, every man I meet is my superior in some way, and in that I learn from him.’ I believe that the people we’ll meet in Rwanda and Kenya will have salient lessons to teach each of us, as long as we approach each encounter with the willingness to be changed by those we meet. I’m excited about the lessons I’ll learn.
Aaron’s excitement is shared by each one of us. We look forward to the journey and the places and the people.
Aaron brings great talent and capacity for accomplishment to our team. But, than that, Aaron models his concern for others through his love for his family, for each one of us, and for those new friends we will soon meet.
