Youth And Young Adults Pastor
David Hayes has been a pastor at Wellspring since May of 2018, but has been a son of the house since birth…no literally. He was born one of the first weeks that Wellspring entered into formal gatherings. David was a part of the youth ministry that Michael led prior to becoming Associate and now Lead Pastor.
David went to Liberty University where he earned degrees in Business Marketing, Business Management, and Speech Communication.
Upon graduating, he entered into the corporate sector venturing into the marketing world for several years prior to jumping into small business.
In 2014, David started several business and ministry ventures, of which two are still ongoing today – Coffee : Experience & Encounter Nights of Worship.
David is a lover of many things, including business and ministry, as well as sports, outdoor activities, writing, and adventuring with friends and family.

What is your favorite family tradition?
When we were kids, we used to line up on the stairs in our pj’s Christmas morning waiting to get our chance to run to the living room and start opening presents. I was always SO EXCITED. The moment of anticipation was nearly as good as opening presents itself!
Who is your least favorite superhero? Why?
I am going to say the Green Lantern simply to instigate someone in Hollywood to remake his story. Please.
He is a great superhero and the movies have treated him so poorly…therefore he is my least…until someone can make a good movie with him.
What is your favorite scripture/life verse?
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
If you were trapped in a zombie apocalypse and you were only allowed one weapon to defend yourself, what weapon would that be?
Well…a couple of thoughts…I am assuming that the world will still be intact to some degree.
…insert the voice of Vizzinni from the Princess Bride…
Thus, I believe that I could find some sort of blunt force weapon……Therefore, I could not choose a sword.
I believe that with some effort I could find some handguns. This is America people…therefore I could not logically choose a gun.
While I could most definitely find transportation, I am not sure that I could find transportation that would protect me from zombies. Those guys seem to have a knack for breaking into windows…therefore I must choose a weapon that can transport me safely…while still being able to fill-up at the local gas station on normal gas…the only option I am left with is an armored vehicle with a machine gun.
