Jodi Bailey, wife of Direction Church pastor Brent, loves people with a warm heart and joy that is evident from first meeting her. She lives to inspire people to grow closer to God because he created us to have a relationship with Him. She is a gifted vocalist and loves to minister to people in song.
Jodi grew up in the ministry as her parents were on staff at the Legendary Melodyland Christian Center in Anaheim, CA. Jodi spent most of her childhood on stage singing to thousands at a time. This paid off one day as Oral Roberts himself heard her singing at Melodyland and offered Jodi the president’s scholarship to Oral Roberts University. This began an adventure of traveling with the Oral Roberts Television Singers having traveled with Oral & Richard Roberts, appearing nightly on “The Hour Of Healing” and special singing at the ICBM Conference held yearly on ORU’s campus. This opened the door for her to minister in song for some of the largest ministries in America including Bob Harrison’s Hawaii Increase Event, Benny Hinn’s Miracle Crusades, Kenneth W. Hagin at RHEMA Bible Church (where she met her husband Brent), & for Pastor Tommy Barnett at Phoenix First Assembly just to name a few.
She has also performed on stage with singing giants Alvin Slaughter, Larnelle Harris, Steve Brock, Lillie Knauls, and Grammy & Dove Award winner Jason Crabb.
In addition to assisting Brent when they were at RHEMA in the AXIS Youth Ministry & Synergy Single’s Ministry, she also serves the congregation of Direction Church. She has recorded her own project, “Soul Longing” and has a bachelor’s degree in Sacred Music from Oral Roberts University. She enjoys being the mother of two boys, Preston & Peyton and spending quality time with Brent.
