Hayden Hefner-finalPastor of Student Ministries

Since 2019

Who I am:

I have been married to my wife Britney since 2016. We currently live in Newcastle and have a one baby girl, Ellie, in heaven. My favorite pastimes are hiking, listening to podcasts, working out, and drinking coffee with good friends. And, even though I am an OU grad, I am an all-out Oklahoma State fan.

What I do:

I believe that Christ's command to make disciples (Matt. 28:19-20) applies to all peoples of all ages in all cultures. As believers, we each have a God-given role to play in this mission. In light of this, I consider it a great privilege to be given the task of discipling the next generation here at Bridgeway. While it is true that this generation presents its own unique discipleship challenges, it is also true that this generation possesses its own unique discipleship opportunities. My desire is to use the means of grace given by God to lead our students into a deeper and more joyful relationship with Jesus. 

What God did:

Before Christ, I was burdened by the weight of my hypocrisy and the shame of sin. Then, I heard the good news that God the Son lived the life I could not, died the death I deserved and was raised to life in victory over death. When this good news finally hit me, I placed faith in Christ. Now, I walk in the joy that only grace can bring about.
