EVANGELIST MICHELE BAILEY
Michele was fearfully and wonderfully made at the very time that God decided to put her on this earth. She didn’t know His plan for her life, but she is finding out slowly but surely as she tries her best to live her life in His will. She loves the scripture Proverbs 16:3, Commit thy works unto the Lord and thy thoughts shall be established.
Evangelist Michele thanks her Almighty Father God for allowing her to be raised by God-fearing parents who instilled in her Christians values from the beginning of her life because it allowed her to be grounded in the word of God. She tried a few things outside the will of God, but she thanks Him for always providing her with His precious love, grace and mercy which was sufficient. He allows her to see that His word is true and effective by His loving kindness towards her.
Evangelist Michele has been blessed with a wonderful and supportive husband, Mr. Preston Bailey I, for the past 19 years. From this union they have been ultimately blessed with 7 children who from the world’s perspective she was not to have, but God and His infinite wisdom and gracious gifting said it would be so, so it was! Two beautiful daughters Sametta Noel and Christian Suzanne, four little men of God, Preston Andrew II, Juston Colbert, Auston Albert-Gary and Langston Bryant and blessed to help raise Joniece Shaw and Lil Jahlil (god-grandson) all of whom are active members in God’s house . Along with this lovely packaged family came some of the best in-laws (extended family) that a woman could ask for. Her mother-in law, Annie Bailey prays with her and for her and encourages her in the Lord and a special god-mother Ada Waldrum.
Evangelist Michele currently attends Washington Bible College and she is an active leader in her church serving as the president of the Missionary Ministry, Trustee Board, Youth Bible Study teacher, Planning Committee and our Food Services Café.
Evangelist Michele blesses God for His calling on her life and she is mindful of the scripture Colossians 2:6-7 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Evangelist Michele was licensed in the office of Evangelism on April 10, 2011.
