Minister


Rev. Alan Bailey

Reverend Alan Bailey comes to us with over twenty-five years of pastoral experience having served Disciple of Christ churches in Tipton, Montgomery City, Auxvasse, and California, Missouri. He completed an interim transitional ministry with Raymore Christian Church in April 2024, and was a commissioned bi-vocational minister during the bulk of these ministries. Alan had never planned to go into pastoral ministry, but it seemed that God had other goals for his life. The Call came to him while he was in his mid-forties and after much resistance realized that God had truly claimed his life for this vocation. Alan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, a Master of Public Administration from the University of Missouri, and a Master of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, Missouri. He was officially ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in August 2022.

Alan and his wife Linda have been married for 49 years and have one son who lives in California. Alan is an avid follower of the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, loves to fish and go to the gym, is passionate about reading, and relishes the time he gets to spend with his wife and their beagle fur baby Lucy. “I am blessed to be in service with the folks at Community Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and give thanks to God for this opportunity. I encourage anyone looking for a church home to come and check out Community Christian Church. There are exciting opportunities here to do the work of the Gospel.”

Jennifer is full of energy, which is good since she teaches music to small children in elementary school for her day job. She is a very positive person with two small children of her own. Jennifer is always open to hearing new ideas for the choir. That turns into some really humorous choral performances on occasion.

Beliefs

Why we exist

We are here to be and make disciples. Disciples are those who have decided that the most important thing in their spiritual lives is to follow the teaching of Jesus.

We work to help people discover their gifts and calling, for the purpose of glorifying God in the world and to bring what we each know about God’s love to everyone.

We are a place where people grow spiritually, love their neighbors and the world, and offer Christ to everyone.

Our commitment

Community Christian Church is committed to wholeness, liberty, and love in Jesus Christ.

We seek wholeness.

We are a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us. All means all.

We value liberty.

Each person is capable of reading scripture and drawing their own conclusions about what is written, following their own spiritual journey.

We pursue love in all things.

The greatest commandment is to love your God; and like it, love your neighbor as yourself.

"Sharing God's Love"

What makes us Disciples of Christ

  • We practice unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table for the sake of mission and for the sake of the world as the one family of God. We do this by celebrating communion every Sunday.
  • We practice believer baptism – that a person makes the choice to follow God’s call rather than the choice being made for them as an infant. Baptism is the basis of membership in the Church and also a mark that every person is called to serve God.
  • We honor our heritage as a movement for Christian unity by cooperating and partnering with other faith communities to work for bringing about wholeness – healing and justice – in the world.
  • We are called to study and read scripture for ourselves. Rather than having tests of faith and creedal statements, we critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background – the context – in which it was written.
  • We also honor the heritage of Christian unity by staying together in covenant as a witness to the world that even when we disagree we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us.
  • We move to answer God’s call for justice particularly in the areas of care for the earth, the challenges for women and children, poverty and hunger and immigration. We seek to do this work in cooperation with other people of faith.
