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 six 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 5 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.
My name is Marissa Barnier, and I am thrilled to be serving as an intern for CBE Denver. I was born right here in Littleton, Colorado, where I am pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics from Denver Seminary. As a budding apologist, I am passionate about defending the objective truth, rationality, and pertinence of Christianity. I believe an important facet of that truth is that God calls men and women to share authority equally in service and leadership. I am honored to take part in CBE’s mission to empower all people, regardless of gender, race, or social status, to use their gifts for the advancement of the gospel. Surely, the harvest is plentiful; may God send more workers into all his fields!
