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 Elizabeth Patton and I am so excited to be serving as a Denver Chapter Intern for CBE! I am originally from Claremont, California and moved to Colorado after graduating from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I have a deep passion for the church and nonprofit sphere, and a God given desire to spread the love of God through service with Gospel intentionality. I am currently a graduate student at Denver Seminary pursuing an MDIV and working at a nonprofit missions’ agency called WorldVenture. I desire to connect and equip women and men within the Global Church through the pursuit of justice, mutuality, and the empowerment of “thy neighbor”. I am deeply honored and excited to join CBE as we engage in dignified dialogue and advocate for equality in our spheres of influence!
