The Honorable Bishop C. M. Bailey, Leader

Bishop C. M. ("Sweet Daddy") Bailey comes to his position as only the fourth person to serve as Bishop of the United House of Prayer in its celebrated 82nd (2008) historical year as a religious institution, known in America and throughout the world. As Bishop, Daddy Bailey is now at the culmination of a lifelong service of dedication to his church, community and Nation. He knew the meaning of dedication so well that, when Daddy McCollough made the call in 1967 for young men to come to be ordained as Elders of the United House of Prayer, he testified that he evaded the call, or so he thought. It was on the Sunday evening of Convocation after the call for Elders had closed that he felt compelled to present himself to Daddy McCollough and ask if it was not too late to still respond to the call; to which Daddy McCollough responded to one of the Elders, "get his name quick, before he changes his mind!" So began 24 years of faithful service by Daddy Bailey as a minister under Daddy McCollough, to be followed by 17 more years of dedicated service in the ministry under Daddy Madison. Daddy Bailey's sum total of 41 years of loyal and devoted service in the ministry under his predecessors, Daddy McCollough and Daddy Madison is hard to match. He has travelled this Nation many times over in giving his untiring support to his predecessors. It was always their cause he advanced - their welfare he sought to protect - and not his own!

 

More often than not, it was Daddy Bailey's voice that was heard as Master of Ceremony at Dedications of new Houses of Prayer built by Daddy Madison in communities across the Nation over these past 17 years; or at the opening of affordable housing developments or senior housing or other community reinvestment efforts directed by Daddy Madison in areas surrounding the various Houses of Prayer. In all of these initiatives, the United House of Prayer, the communities and the Nation have benefited. In the Year 2000, when Daddy Madison saw the need to strengthen the General Council, he appointed Daddy Bailey as a Judge of the General Council in September in Augusta, GA, with instructions that he would preside over the General Council in Charlotte, NC, for the closing out of the Convocation and of the works. In a further move to strengthen the institution of the General Council, Daddy Madison appointed Daddy Bailey in the year 2004 as Head Judge of the General Council. Finally, to preserve the stability of the organization, Daddy Madison saw fit to appoint Daddy Bailey as Senior Minister of the United House of Prayer (to act with all powers of the Bishop in event of a vacancy in the Office), while in the General Assembly Session of 2006. Daddy Madison went on to appoint Daddy Bailey as Moderator of the 2006 General Assembly Session and, again, for the 2007 General Assembly Session. On May 23, 2008, upon the passing of Daddy Madison, Daddy Bailey was elected as Bishop by an unprecedented 91 percent of the votes.
