Minister of Youth

Hayden Young

My name is Hayden Young. I graduated from East Central University in 2004 with a degree in Human Service Counseling. I surrendered to youth ministry in 2002 while I was the youth intern at the church I was attending. It wasn't until August of 2014 God called me to be the youth minister here at Southmoore Baptist Church. It's hard to believe I have been on staff for over 4 years already. I am thankful for God's Grace in my life that allows me to do what God has called me to do. It is so fun connecting with students and connecting them to Christ. I am thankful I get to be the youth minister at Southmoore Baptist Church. It has been a blast to have a front row seat to watch God move in students lives. I look forward to all God still has in store !
I am a PE teacher at Plaza Towers Elementary by day. I was teacher of the year in 2014. I am currently working on my master's in Education Administration. I love college football especially watching the OU Sooners. Also, I am a huge OKC Thunder fan. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, staying fit, listening to music, watching movies (if I ever have time.) Most of all I love making people smile and making them laugh.
My life verse is Joshua 1:9. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord  your God will be with you wherever you go.” Every day the Lord asks us to follow him and asks us to have courage to do his will. This verse helps me in so many areas of my life to live out my life in faith to him and knowing he is with me everywhere I go. This helps me to have confidence in whatever I face and helps give me rest when I need it.
