Jeff Bailey
Worship Leader

Music has always played an important role in my life.  Several genres of music have influenced me from the songs of Frank Sinatra to Classic Country to Soul to Gospel.  I fell in love with hymns of the faith at an early age.  It was through my love of Gospel music that I started singing in church.  I gave my heart to Jesus in 1976.  Today, I want to share my love of music and worship with others.  My wife, Nicki, and I have 3 adult kids and one grandson.  I attended the South Plains College Commercial Music program.  I have served as interim Worship Leader at several area churches .  God is the object of our worship and He alone is worthy of worship.  So let’s worship Him together.

Gail Roberts
Children’s  Ministry Coordinator

Gail was raised in a strong Christian family and accepted Christ as Savior as a young mother.  The Lord gave her a supportive and godly husband, four children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Gail has served in churches in several states and has directed nurseries, taught in a Christian school and has worked in the children’s ministry here at LRBC.  Her hearts desire is to see children accept Christ as their Savior and then to follow Him wherever he leads.  Through Sunday School, choirs and Bible drills the children’s ministry seeks to instill Godly character in the lives of children so they will be equipped to stand against worldly influences.  Gail and her husband, Bill, have been at LakeRidge Baptist for 27 years.
