Matt Bailey has been serving as a pastor in the central Texas conference since 2015 when he graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary and gratefully returned to the great state of Texas. Matt began a life in ministry when he joined his local church’s praise band at the age of 11 in Sugar Land, Texas. He met his wife, Jennifer, at Texas A&M. They married in 2000 and began serving as lay people at FUMC Midlothian, where Matt served as worship leader and youth pastor before feeling a call to ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church. Matt served as the pastor of Lorena UMC since entering ordained ministry in 2015. Jennifer has been a middle school math teacher since 1999, blessing many school districts along the way. Matt and Jennifer have been blessed with two wonderful children. Emma is 14 and loves to sing and perform musical theater and currently helps lead worship at Lorena UMC. James is about to be 10 and likes to ride his scooter and fish with his dad. Matt’s passion for ministry is to see people encounter the living Christ for themselves through worship, prayer, scripture study, service, and small group support. Outside of ministry, Matt likes to play various musical instruments and go kayak fishing.
