David Hayes, Director of Music Ministries.

David began attending Wilderness in 2001, and joined the music team shortly thereafter. He joined the staff in the spring of 2004. David has a B.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern Mississippi, and he holds a full-time position as a scientist at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, VA.

David grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where his parents still live. His love for music began at an early age. His father is a retired Minister of Music in Mississippi who has had a huge impact on David’s passion for music.   This love of music, coupled with David’s desire to see people drawn into a closer relationship with God, inspired David to join the music team, and ultimately, to take on the position of Director of Music Ministries. David is committed to helping others experience authentic worship of God through music.

David has been involved with a variety of musical groups, including large choirs, gospel quartets, contemporary praise ensembles, Christian contemporary/Praise & Worship bands, and orchestras (trombone), to name a few. David has also participated in a variety of church drama productions.

David has been a resident of Spotsylvania County since 1986. He and his wife, Cindy, were married in 2008. Together, David and Cindy have 4 daughters and a son-in-law, along with two cats name Charlie and Stormy.
