Meet our Denver chapter leaders
Rev. Dr. Sue Bailey is a graduate of the University of Michigan, and Denver Seminary where she received both a Master of Divinity in 2010, and a Doctorate of Divinity in 2021. After being ordained as a Teacher Elder/Pastor with the EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church) she served the local church. Later, she felt called to use her gifts of exhortation through creative enterprises under the initiative of Sue Bailey Ministries, LLC. Her passion for Christ and her desire to encourage and promote all believers to use their God-given gifts toward kingdom-building is further realized in her affiliation with CBE.
For the last five years Sue has had the privilege of working with CBE International as the Director of the CBE Denver Chapter. Sue uses her voice to promote mutuality/gender equality across racial, ethnic, and gender lines by raising awareness about mutuality and inviting those with divergent views to gather, talk about their differences, and reason together through "dignified dialogue." Sue and her supportive husband, Dr. Brent Bailey, live in Littleton, Colorado where they remain committed to and involved in ministries both here and abroad.
My name is Lauren and I’ve been working with CBE Denver for about 4 years. I’m originally from Sioux Falls, but I currently live in the Denver area and graduated with an MDIV degree from Denver Seminary. I am the Future Leader Minister of American Baptist Churches of the Rocky Mountains. I’m super passionate about mutuality between men and women in the worldwide church and God’s desire for the church to be a place of encouragement, love, and comfort. Besides being involved in upcoming podcasts, I am also the primary point person for our FB presence and Instagram updates.
Taylor was born and raised in Texas, but moved to the Denver area five years ago. As a recent MDIV Chaplaincy graduate from Denver Seminary, she is passionate about caring for the spiritual and emotional well-being for all people, regardless of their faith, gender, race, or ethnicity. Apart for her work with CBE, she additionally serves as the Director of Care at a local Evangelical Covenant Church.
Taylor did not grow up in a denomination that emulated biblical mutuality. However, through the call to care placed on her life, her seminary education, spiritual gifts affirmed, and past ministry experiences, Taylor has developed a heart for both gender reconciliation and empathy work through dignified dialogue within the church towards biblical mutuality. When they are not working, Taylor and her husband Matt, love adventuring via hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, kayaking, rafting, camping, climbing, lifting, and running. Taylor cannot wait to get to know you better and hear your story!
