Rev. Chris Bailey is the Presbyterian Campus Minister for Marshall UKIRK.
He started in this position on April 1, 2017.
Born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, Chris graduated with a degree in Religion and Philosophy from Wofford College. Heavily influenced by his experiences as a Bonner Scholar and Co-Moderator of UKIRK (then, known as the Presbyterian Student Association), he went to Princeton Theological Seminary. It was there that he met his wife, Rev. Noha Khoury-Bailey.
Chris serves as Campus Minister for Marshall UKIRK and recently served on the planning team for the UKIRK National Gathering.
When Chris isn't working, he enjoys staying active and having adventures with Noha and their son, Michael.
Marshall UKIRK meets weekly on Tuesdays during the academic year for dinner, worship, and Bible study in the Campus Christian Center at Marshall University.
Spinning off a Lenten study around the book ‘Queering Lent,’ Marshall UKIRK partners with Marshall University’s LGBTQ+ Office to offer A-SLAY-ing Grace, an open and affirming support group for LGBTQ+ students to talk about issues of faith, share experiences, and offer support to one another.
Marshall UKIRK is a ministry of the Westminster Foundation. More information about Marshall UKIRK can be found at marshallukirk.org and on social media @marshallukirk.
