PLANTING PASTOR | firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Hunter Bailey grew up in Little Rock, where he met and fell in love with his high school sweetheart, Abbie. They both graduated from the University of Arkansas, where Hunter earned a bachelor’s degree in communication and Abbie completed a M.A. in teaching. The newly-married couple then headed south to Jackson, Mississippi, where Hunter attended Reformed Theological Seminary. He graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2002.
The Baileys’ next stop was across the pond in Scotland. While in the land of kilts and haggis, Hunter served as a missionary with Mission to the World and completed a Ph.D. in systematic theology and church history. His doctoral research focused on Christ’s atonement and assurance of faith in the life of the believer. In 2006, Hunter was called by Reformed University Fellowship to serve as the campus pastor at Emory University. For the next seven years, the Baileys called Atlanta, Georgia, home as they ministered to college students.
In 2013, the Baileys and their three children moved to Arkansas to begin the work of church planting in Fayetteville. Hunter loves all things Razorback, duck hunting, playing sports, hiking with his family, perfecting his backyard smoked BBQ, and playing strategy board games.
