The Dawson Family History
In the summer of 2001, God laid a burden upon the heart of Dr. Aaron Dawson to begin an equipping ministry to meet the “greatest need” of the church. It was from that point on that Aaron began to search for what that need is. A period of nearly six years passed before Aaron realized that one of his own shortcomings was the answer–personal evangelism. In 2006, during a conversation with his brother-in-law Jeremy Cox, Aaron realized that God was bringing them together to work as a team. As time has passed the talents and abilities of each have been challenged, stretched and enhanced in pursuit of God’s will for 29:11 Ministries.
Aaron Dawson is the son of Steve and Sandy Dawson. He was raised in the ministry as his parents served in their church and Christian school. He graduated from Queenstown Christian Academy in 1998. Aaron was then off to the Ministry Training Institute to complete two years of his bachelor’s degree. He finished it through Andersonville Theological Seminary. He served as pastor at Ebenezer Free Will Baptist Church in Falkville, Alabama. Aaron fulfills the roles of lead speaker, apologetics coordinator, and writer.
Aaron Dawson currently serves as the Pastor of Souls Harbor Church in Vinemont, Alabama. He began his career with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office in 2012 as a night shift Line Officer. Since that time he has served as a Line Officer, Dispatcher, Corporal, Sergeant and since April of 2017-2023, as the Warden. Since 2014, Aaron has been a founding member of the Alabama Jail Training Academy. Prior to beginning his career in Corrections, Aaron served in the educational field as a Teacher, Coach and Principal. He also has been pastoring since 2008. Aaron has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Master’s Degree in Counseling, and a Ph.D in Communication and Leadership. He is married to his wife of 19 years and together they have four sons. Aaron enjoys firearms, woodworking, farming, writing, music and book collecting.
