Who are our leaders?

Riverbend leadership

DR. DAVID HANEY
SENIOR PASTOR

Dave’s passion for leading a church for people who don’t like church has shaped his ministry. Dave and his wife Diane have three grown daughters; Cayah, Leah and Kaitlyn, all of whom have wound up in Austin, not simply to be near their family, but just because Austin is that awesome.


PETER SLEEPER
EXECUTIVE PASTOR 

Peter has a heart for teaching and a burden to figure out what the Church needs to become to help post-Christian people experience the caring love of Christ. Peter loves to spend time with his family, travel, play golf, surf, learn new things and have stimulating conversations with people.


NORMAN SCHOENFELD
CHURCH INVOLVEMENT PASTOR

Norm works with the numerous volunteers at Riverbend, looking for ways to get them “involved”—serving others through Riverbend. Norm is part of the Church Council, Stewardship & Mission committees, and Men’s ministry. He oversees the operational areas of Riverbend Church.


KEVIN HEDGES
CREATIVE ARTS PASTOR

Kevin, his wife Mindy, and daughter Grace, are transplants from the San Francisco Bay Area by way of the foothills of Denver. Experiencing and embracing Austin with the love of Jesus, they hope to live out the blessing that everyday we are all waking up to what God is already doing.
