Meet the Pastor
The Hays family has served in ministry together for 20 years. Matt and Jennifer studied at Texas Bible College, Jennifer also studied at Indiana Bible College, and Matt is currently pursuing his family counseling degree. They have ministered across the country and overseas to spiritually hungry people and have experienced the power of God’s presence changing lives.
Pastors Matt and Jennifer have been married for 20 years and have three daughters Macy, Mya, and Mabry. The Hays family felt the calling of God lead them and moved to the Zachary area in October of 2009 to begin working to rebuild Lighthouse Church. They are excited about the opportunity to be apart of building the Kingdom God in Zachary and, together with an anointed team, they are working to grow the Lighthouse Church in Zachary into a community of Christ-centered, Spirit-filled believers.
Pastor Matt and Jen's individual talents, passions, and callings enrich not only our local church, but also our section and district. Pastor Matt currently serves as our Section Youth Director and preaches to both local and district congregations. Jen's talent and passion as a singer and musician drive our worship team to excellence.
