Hayden has a passion for kids ministry and rejoined the GBCC staff in April 2021. He had spent more than four years working with students at GBCC before departing in 2020 for a one-year stint at Camera Corner.
Now that he has returned in a new role, Hayden is bringing his passion to younger kids in Children's Ministry.
Hayden was born in Sheboygan and grew up in Eagle River, where he graduated from Northland Pines High School in 2009. Prior to studying at UW - Green Bay Hayden attended one year of bible college at James River Leadership College in Springfield, Mo.
Hayden grew up in the church and decided to follow Christ in high school. "It was the end of my junior year and something happened to me that made me really think about all of the bad decisions I was making,” Hayden said. “I made the decision to start actually living my life for Him."
Hayden likes spending time with people and is into movies, video games, comic books, running and basically playing any sport. "I’m really game to do almost anything,” he said. Two items on his bucket list are to visit Scotland and go skydiving.
Just days after graduating from UW-Green Bay in May 2015 with a degree in history, humanistic studies and German, Hayden married Lydia. The couple welcomed a daughter, Aletheia, in 2021.
When asked to share a life lesson, Hayden replied: "That you should not do things based on human perception but based on what God wants you to do."
