A Joyful Announcement!
It is my pleasure to welcome our new Assistant-to-the-Pastor, Bailey Smith! Bailey
comes to the position with a long track record of effective ministry and experience in
publicity and social media. She is a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ and a valued and
wonderful member of our fellowship!
Bailey will begin with what the Deacons have identified as a pressing need for OBC,
that of publicity, especially on social media. She will administer our Facebook Live Stream
and utilize our public Facebook page. She also will get us onto Instagram and begin a
publicity campaign on that platform and possibly on others in the future. Together with
the Deacons, Bailey and I will examine our website and look at how it might be tweaked for
Beginning in June, Bailey will also assist with Children’s ministry. This will begin
with helping with the Kids Drama Team and Vacation Bible School. She will also
collaborate with me and other church leaders on expansion of our children’s and youth
ministries. We already have some ideas that I think are very positive and exciting!
I will say, it still surprises me sometimes at how the Lord works, and how quickly He
can suddenly bring things together when the time is right. I look forward to working and
collaborating with Bailey as we move forward into God’s future as a church, just as I know
you will welcome her into this position with open arms, as you always welcome everyone
into our fellowship with such warmth and love. God is Good!
