Meet Our Leadership
Say hello to the leadership at Church on The Rock Homer.
Aaron Weisser - Pastor overseeing Leadership & Administration
Aaron Weisser: "Jenny and I are filled with gratitude these days after over 20 years of marriage, six beautiful kids, and 12 years of Church on the Rock ministry in Homer, Alaska. With every new day I am reminded of the reality we are invited to join with God in advancing His kingdom here on earth. Not because He couldn’t get it done but because He wanted us to experience the joy and fulfillment of a meaningful participation with Him and the reward of seeing the freedom of the gospel made available to others."

Annie Guess - Project Manager
Born and raised in Oregon for the first 34 years of my life, God called Mark, myself and our three daughters out of the life we knew so well, to Homer in August 2017. Previously, serving on staff at a local church as youth leaders among other ministries, it wasn't easy to leave loved ones. However, obeying the Lord and experiencing His presence all along the way has given us a sure confidence for our present and future.
With our hearts set on loving God and seeking His will for our family we knew finding a church family was of utmost importance. COTR Homer was where we found ourselves the first Sunday we were in Homer and ultimately where God asked us to plant ourselves. With hearts set on loving people and serving our community (and after a long needed rest), we have found joy investing in the ministries of First Look, 252 and worship team. For me personally, my new role at the church office has been a gift to my heart! One I didn't know I needed and I'm so thankful for the way the Lord orchestrates His people down to the smallest details!
My hope is to be a gracious help to our incredible staff as we journey together making disciples, all for His glory!
Esther McLinn - Bookkeeper
Esther McLinn has been happy to serve COTRH in various ways since its beginning in 2008. She likes to organize and finds excitement when numbers add up correctly; so she's really happy that she can serve Jesus Christ's body doing both of those things. She enjoys being a part of the staff community and appreciates the ability to work from home. She is married to her favourite human being and is the mother of her second-favourite human being and in 2020 added another human being to her family.
