Shanan Bailey’s path to the ministry is anything but typical. After practicing law for 24 years, Shanan felt God’s call in the Spring of 2016 to serve as full-time Music Minister and Worship Leader for his home church at First Baptist Church in Sherman, TX, where he and his family have been members since 1991. Prior to that, Shanan was a member of the sanctuary choir and praise team for 18 years. He also wrote two drama scripts for his church’s annual Christmas pageants. Shanan’s current ministry focus includes developing multi-generational worship services which encourage all age groups to freely and sincerely worship our Heavenly Father as a unified body of Christ. He is also seeking new ways that the music ministry can move beyond the walls of the church to reach those who need to hear the gospel. Shanan and his wife Carrie have two children, Sarah Beth and Ben, two spoiled dogs and one very spoiled cat! Shanan is a self-described golf fanatic who also enjoys snow skiing and hanging out at the beach.
