Aaron was the son of William Wagner Orwig (an Evangelical Association bishop and hymn writer) and Susan Rishel, husband of Kate Hutchings, and brother of Susan Hoffman. The town of Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, is named after his family.
In 1869, Aaron moved to Cleveland, Ohio when his father went there to edit Der Christliche Botschafter. That same year, he began publishing The Living Epistle magazine.
The Ohio Conference of the Evangelical Association licensed Orwig to preach in 1871. He transferred to the California Conference in 1906.
