Death of John Bailey

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of GCI Pastor John Bailey. Here is an obituary from John’s daughter, Dawn Stephens.

Pastor John W. Bailey passed away peacefully at his home in Indian Land, SC, on December 19. He had been a deacon, elder and pastor serving congregations in Cedar Rapids and Davenport, IA, and in Charlotte, NC. He also coordinated GCI’s festival held in Davenport.

Pastor John is survived by his wife Karen Bailey; two children, Dawn (Bob) Stephens and Troy Bailey; two grandsons, Michael Stephens and Jeffrey Stephens; and one great-grandson, Daniel Stephens.

Pastor John was a dedicated servant of God and loved serving the people of his congregations.
