Jennifer Bailey joined the Epworth staff in 2019. She is an ordained elder in the West Ohio Conference who has been worshiping with the Epworth family since 2014. Her bachelors degree is from the University of Illinois (Go Illini!) and MDIV from United Theological Seminary. She has served on the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry and the Conference Relations Team.
Jennifer said her favorite thing about God is the way God consistently takes our broken, chaotic lives and transforms them into something beautiful.
She lives in Whitehouse, OH with her husband, Bob and two teenagers, Dominic and Teresa, and dog Buddy. Her passions include transformational God stories, The Holy Spirit, dark chocolate, and her family.
At Epworth, Jennifer serves as Pastor of Welcome Ministries, helping people find their “next faith step”. She also serves part-time as the office manager at Hope Lutheran Church (also in Ottawa Hills).
