Our Associate Pastor Scott Hayden was born only a few miles away from The Bridge in Norco California. During his High School years, he met his wife Nicole. Together they have two boys, Sullivan and Benny. Scott is a lifelong musician, Disney fanatic, and (sorry Raider fans) Kansas City Chiefs fan.
Call to Ministry
In his twenties, Scott was living a much different lifestyle. He was in a band signed to a major label (Glassnote Records) where he traveled and toured all over the world. His music was featured in all major publications and music outlets! Somewhere in the midst of touring America he realized he had seen the world and yet felt empty. The promises of the world seemed fleeting. He then opened a children’s Bible and surrendered to God and started his personal relationship with Christ.
After getting off the road, Scott decided to volunteer at a local church. He reached out to a friend and starting playing music at a small Lutheran church in Claremont California.
Soon, Scott realized music was only a small part of the calling he felt from God. He re-enrolled in school and received a Certificate in Apologetics and Biblical Studies from Biola University. Scott then enrolled into Nations University to continue his education where he plans to receive a Masters of Divinity.
Scott has been serving in ministry all over Southern California. His first position being the Music Director/Youth Director for Redeemer Lutheran Church and School in Ontario. He was then called to Loving Savior Church and School in Chino Hills as an Associate Pastor.
Over the past few years Scott started listening and watching Pastor Mark’s object lessons on YouTube. Finding out that Mark was located in Corona, only 20 minutes away, Scott knew he had to reach out! After getting to know Mark and his wife Debra, it was apparent he was going to work alongside him in ministry.
Scott feels truly blessed to see God’s goodness in action by bringing him and his family into The Bridge Church where they now call home.
