Before coming to Oak Lawn as our Senior Pastor, Rachel served for 10 years at University Park UMC. She is passionate about discipleship, social justice, and hospitality for those on the margins. A graduate of Texas Wesleyan University and Drew Theological Seminary, Rachel edited the CEB Women’s Study Bible and has contributed to a long list of curricula for Sparkhouse Press (including the resources we use at OLUMC!). Rachel is a certified Birkman coach who loves strengthening church staffs and lay leadership to improve their mutual understanding and ability to work well with each other. Her husband, Rev. Mike Baughman, is also a United Methodist minister. They live in the Dallas area with their four children, Griffin 16, Bekah 14, Sylvia 10, and Thomas 8.
Rev. Smith came to OLUMC after years of living, in his words, “the self-created catastrophe of my so-called life.” On his first visit to the campus, he encountered his “spiritual grandma,” longtime volunteer June Worsham, who made a disciple for Jesus Christ…simply by welcoming the stranger. Pastor Gregg oversees our outreach ministries and directs the OLUMC Community Outreach Center. He is best friends with our official church dog, LanceBingo.
