Jocelyn Hayden is delighted to be married to her amazing husband Aaron Hayden and is the
proud mother of her beautiful daughter Aria Hayden.
She is a proud alumnus of the James S. Rickard’s High School, where she realized her love for
people and the social life. In turn, that love for people developed into a passion for servant hood
and helping others, which led her to receive her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Social Work
from the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU). Mrs. Hayden is currently the
Advisor for the FAMU Department of Social Work where she also has been granted the
opportunity to teach. She also serves as the advisor for several FAMU campus student
organizations. She is a Lay Pastoral Care Facilitator with the African American Caregiving
Training and Support (ACTS2) Project where she also serves as a Board member.
Due to her heart for servant hood and love for people, she became heavily involved in the
community. So much so that Wakulla County awarded her the Unity Award and the Exceptional
Leadership Award for her community roles. She is also a member of Love In Motion, a
community service group that volunteers in the community through outreach and evangelism.
She is the founder of Generation NOW Ministries, a group of young adults who encouraged
spiritual growth, a healthy social life and community involvement.
Jocelyn loves; to dance, the diversity of food, hosting events, spending time with family and
friends, date nights and good clean fun! She equally loves teaching! God has slid life coaching
and speaking under her teaching umbrella. Teaching has provided her the opportunity to create
and teach workshops, to speak to college classes, to speak at retreats and conferences, to speak
at churches, and to share Gods message of truth and love through it all. Her life's mission is to "Love God, Love People, Love Life". Which she thrives to do every single day!
