KELLY
HAYES

FAMILY PASTOR

Kelly and his wife, Jess, have been a part of the Church at Sandhurst since 2015. Over the years, he has invested his time and energy in a variety of areas -- life groups, college ministry, the nursery, musical worship, Sandhurst U, B.O.B. groups, and more -- and he loves it. As an experienced teacher and partner to parents, he is passionate about serving and supporting families as we follow Jesus together at Sandhurst. He loves to encourage and help them succeed in the important mission to which God has called them. And he loves kids! They can be fun and silly, and Kelly loves being those things too. But he also knows that each child is uniquely created in the image of God and for the glory of God. The Good News is good for kids too.


Kelly has earned degrees from Liberty University (BS, MA, ThM, MRE) and Southern Seminary (DEdMin). Because he treasures the God's Word and God's people, his studies largely focused on teaching Scripture and equipping others to live it out. A few of his interests include music, reading, ultimate frisbee, chess, and meaningful conversation. Kelly and Jess are parents of toddler-age triplets and they love spending time together as a family.
