Michael Hayes

Michael Hayes

Michael Hayes was born and raised in northern California. After graduating from Sonoma State University and Fuller Theological Seminary, he and his family spent the next ten years working with university and high school students with Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship in Hawaii. After an interim pastorship in Alaska he went on to pastor Covenant churches in Fargo, North Dakota and Minnesota. When asked "Who Am I?" He answered, "That question cannot be answered without the affirmation that my wife and children (and grandchildren!) and my close friends are a substantial part of my being. I am who I am because they are who they are. We are one in Christ. And for all that I am grateful. Hmm, not a bad epitaph: Mike's not here; he has moved on. But he said to tell you, Thank you." Mike went to be with the Lord Saturday, February 24th, 2018 after a life of loving family, others, music, books, the outdoors, and writing. A celebration of his life will be held Saturday March 3, 11:30am at First Covenant Church in Red Wing, MN.
