2023 will mark Aaron Faro's 15th season as the top assistant within the Messiah men's soccer program. A former standout on the soccer pitch for the Falcons, Faro is the Assistant Camp Director for the Messiah Boys Soccer Camps.  Faro provides leadership in the summertime as a Lead Coach on the staff for the Christian College ID Camp, Day Camp, and Resident Camps.  Faro also created two of the camps offered each summer--Team Camp and the Little Falcons Camp--and is the acting Director for those camps.

Prior to returning to his alma mater, Faro spent five years playing professional soccer while also working in sports ministry. Much of Faro’s experience stems from his work at Missionary Athletes International (MAI), one of the world leaders in sports ministry. Following graduation, Faro both played and worked for the United Soccer League’s Charlotte Eagles organization — a subsidiary of MAI. Faro’s playing career spanned five seasons with the Eagles, helping the club to the USL National Championship in 2005 while aiding to runner-up finishes in both 2004 and 2006.

Faro also spent four years of his playing career as the Charlotte Eagles camp director, overseeing all aspects of 20-plus camps each summer while managing over 60 staff members. Under Faro’s leadership, the Eagles’ sessions grew to include camps for high school and college teams as well as camps for underprivileged youth in the inner city and Hispanic communities of Charlotte.
