The Rev. Jason Hay, 39, has begun his ministry at Lynn Haven Baptist Church, which serves the Vinton and Southeast Roanoke areas. He has come from an 11-year stay at Mecklenburg Baptist Church in Boydton. Hay grew up as a Baptist in Richmond and obtained both his undergraduate and theological education at Liberty University in Lynchburg. There he met his wife, the former Tiffany Henry of Mill Creek, Pa. The Hay family includes Landen, 10, and Lauren, 4, now enrolled at the church’s pre-school.
