Pastors & Staff
Pastor Doug Hays
Rev. Doug Hays has served LPUMC since July, 2010.  He has been an ordained elder within the Baltimore Conference for almost 40 years serving churches in Prince George's, Frederick, Baltimore, and St. Mary’s Counties.  He spent the majority of his ministry founding Christ UMC of Ballenger Creek in Frederick.

Pastor Hays especially enjoys preaching and leading small groups.  His great desire is to see people come to know Christ as Savior and serve Him as Lord.  He takes great pleasure in helping church members work together as a team to glorify the Lord.

Pastor Doug is the son of an Air Force officer and grew up living everywhere from Guam to Germany.  This early life experience helped prepare him for the itinerate lifestyle of a Methodist preacher.  He has two grown children and enjoys relaxing by sailing and playing ice hockey.

Pastor Lori Hays
Rev. Lori Hoffman Hays has been our Associate Pastor since July, 2010.  She is an ordained elder, and has been a Pastor in the Baltimore-Washington Conference since 1999, having pastored churches in Frederick, Baltimore, and Howard Counties.   Prior to becoming a Pastor, she worked on several church staffs, developing children and youth ministries and Christian Education programs.  Here at LPUMC, she still spends time with some of our children during children’s sermons and occasional special children’s programs.  She provides staff support to the Sunday School program and Youth Ministry leaders.
Pastor Lori works in partnership with her husband, Rev. Doug Hays, in planning all three Sunday worship services, and typically assists in leading some of the services each week.  She has a special interest in helping church members discover their particular gifts for ministry, and enjoys helping individuals find their exciting place in the ministry of the church.
