Haley Hatai

Kids' Director

As Kids’ Director, Haley is eager to pass on a heart for discipleship and an excitement to learn about our awesome God to Garden City’s kids and leaders.

Haley was born and raised in good ol’ Fresno, California and is the oldest of three siblings. She was raised in a Christian home and learned at an early age to trust fully in God’s goodness. When difficult times hit, Haley experienced the truth of the Gospel and grew to understand that she can trust Him in any circumstance. Haley recently graduated from California State University, Fresno with a degree in Health Science. In August 2016, Haley and her husband Kevin moved to San Jose after he accepted a job offer. Haley loves to help teach others to know and to love God, and also has a passion for adults and kids with special needs. She has worked with kids affected by special needs in high school, elementary school, in church, and in several community ministries. Haley has also worked beside and with her mom, who has been leading Children’s Ministries for 12 years.

Haley enjoys dates with her husband, almost any outdoor activity, especially hiking or kayaking, hanging with her Life Group, playing board games, traveling, eating good food, and exploring the Bay Area.
