Pastor Bailey is a retired Master Sergeant from the Marine Corps having served 21 years on active duty. He was called to preach at the age of 16 and through God’s divine providence was sent on military orders to Oceanside, CA in 2004. He has served in various roles in ministry such as a jail and prison chaplain, nursing home/elderly care, youth pastor, satellite church pastor, interim battalion chaplain and evangelist. He is the author of the Christian fiction novel The Lesser Man of Shiloh published in 2014. He believes that God’s people should be active and be “doers of the Word and not hearers only” and so he enthusiastically serves as the Religious Affairs Chair for the North County NAACP and various community outreach programs. He has championed efforts to serve our Marine/Sailors on Camp Pendleton, homeless ministries, food distribution and much more. He has a heart for evangelism and a God given talent for teaching God’s Word. His favorite verse is: Ephesians 2:10 - For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

She is a licensed evangelist with the First Jurisdiction, Southern California COGIC and has spoken at various levels to include the State Women’s Convocation. Her desire is to help the women of God to become whole: Mind, Body and Spirit. Together, she and Pastor Bailey have been foster parents of (7) children and have adopted (3) children. In all, they have (5) children (George, Elijah, David, Hannah and Elizabeth). Her favorite verse is: Isaiah 40:30-31 - Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
