Dr. Mike Hayes is a reconciler. His life and ministry are characterized by connecting people in life-giving relationship with God and each other. He is a uniter—catalyzing racial reconciliation and healing for more than 40 years.
As the Founding Pastor of Covenant Church in Carrollton, Texas, he pioneered a ministry that exemplifies covenant relationships. Flourishing in diversity, with more than 100 nations represented, Covenant Church has become a leading voice for unity and a model for transcultural, multigenerational and multiethnic ministry.
He is the author of several books, including Influence: Becoming the Leader that Changes the World and the bestseller God’s Law of First Things. Dr. Mike Hayes currently serves as President of Churches in Covenant, a global network of churches and ministries united to bless the nations.
In January of 2017, he launched a new initiative focused on bringing hope and restoration to our nation. The Center for National Renewal in Washington D.C. is a Christian, interdenominational, non-partisan organization that seeks to unite ideas and influencers to effect change and promote reconciliation. As a hub of intercession, reconciliation, education and influence, the Center for National Renewal serves to collaborate with local and national leaders to heal the deep divides in our land.
Dr. Mike Hayes and his wife, Kathy, have embarked on a new journey. Together, they are called to leverage decades of ministry and a wealth of influence—to see an unprecedented time of refreshing and renewal sweep across our nation and the world.
