Aaron J. Babyar serves as the Training Director of Support Raising Solutions and Exago, and is the lead national trainer of SRS Bootcamp. Aaron and his family have lived and ministered on support since 2003, but the road hasn’t been an easy one. Aaron willingly shares about his many mistakes that initially impeded his support raising progress. Aaron eventually sought a biblical perspective and helpful training, and God blessed him with a true support team that continues to pray for and financially support his ministry. Inspired and mentored by Steve Shadrach, founder of SRS, Aaron has now trained thousands in raising personal support. He has also helped coach hundreds of Ministry Partner Development Trainers and Coaches from Great Commission ministries across the world.

Encouragement on the road to building a support team
As an MPD (Ministry Partner Development) Coach, this podcasts helps me think about my own support raising as well as different ways to help my team. The conversations are encouraging, convicting, interesting, and practical. I definitely recommend it and all the resources that SRS / Support Raising Solutions offers.
Building a team from Referrals
This was an excellent podcast helping remind me not only the value of asking for referrals- the blocking and tackling of this process. Very helpful!
