    Mike Hayes

    Mike Hayes is the Director of Young Adult Ministry in the Diocese of Cleveland. Mike began a rich ministry career by founding BustedHalo.com. His first book, Googling God, focused on changing the conversation within the Catholic Church on ministering to the often-ignored 20- and 30-something crowd. He also authored Loving Work (Orbis, 2014) and served as the principle editor for the World Youth Day Retreat Guide for the USCCB (2016). He has worked as a campus minister, serving at both a state university and a Catholic college. A noted media expert, Mike worked at WFAN Radio and WOR Radio for 10 years before refocusing his energy on direct ministry. He covered major league baseball and served as a producer, technical director, or newsroom coordinator for many radio shows. Mike has been married to Marion since 2002, and they live with their dog, Haze, in Lakewood, Ohio.
