Timothy D. Bailey

Leadership Team

Timothy D. Bailey, the youngest son of the late Levert Bailey Jr. and Joanne Bailey, was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. From the womb, he was in church.  In fact, his mother went into labor during a Sunday night church service. 

At the age of 13, while playing “church” after choir rehearsal, God spoke to him and said, “preach my gospel.”  However, it was two years later, at age 15, when he began preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He spent almost 30 years under the leadership of his spiritual parents, the late Bishop Lewis Q. Fitzpatrick and Mother Dr. Mary L. Fitzpatrick, at Calvary Apostolic Assembly.  He was taught in the ways of Holiness and was baptized in Jesus’ name in 1986.  In 1988, during the Harvest Crusade at Pentecostal Church of Christ, Timothy received the gift of the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

In his home church at Calvary Apostolic, he learned the value of taking care of God’s house. He served by cleaning the church, taking care of the lawn, playing the drums, directing the choir and being the armor bearer for Bishop Fitzpatrick.  Typically, where you saw Bishop, Timothy was present, as well, with his spiritual father. 

As Timothy grew in ministry, he served under the leadership of Bishop C. Wayne Brantley of Zion Pentecostal Church of Christ. It was there that he received his Ministerial Fellowship Papers and became a Licensed Elder, in 2008, through the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW).  His ministry was cultivated as Bishop Brantley built platforms for him to operate in his gifts.  He was Youth Liaison and more, while performing duties as an armor bearer for Bishop Brantley.

In 2010, Timothy went to serve in ministry at the First Apostolic Faith Church in Akron, Ohio, under the leadership of Bishop Samuel L. Hampton II. Under Bishop Hampton’s leadership, he served on the pastoral team, youth pastor and armor bearer.

In 2014, Timothy was consecrated as Pastor by Apostle Rochell Nooner of Los Angeles, California. Soon afterwards, he and his wife launched “Shaking A Generation Ministries.” S.A.G. Ministries was blessed to see souls saved, healed and delivered. After 8 years, God transitioned S.A.G. from a traditional 4-wall ministry to an outreach and evangelistic ministry. He has served in many capacities from a local level to a national level and is a willing vessel that God has used for the healing and deliverance to many souls.

His pastorate was affirmed in 2016 with the laying on of hands by Bishop C. Wayne Brantley of Cleveland, Ohio. Then, in November 2020, “Pastor Timothy” was consecrated as a Bishop by Apostle Frederick V. Cullins, Jr. of the Apostolic Impact Empowerment Network. 

“Bishop Timothy Bailey” is currently serving at The Faith Place in Akron, Ohio on the Pastoral Leadership Team. God is using him to preach the gospel throughout the city, and abroad, through healing and deliverance to the generation he’s called to serve. 

He is married to the lovely Evangelist Melanie L. Bailey. They are blessed to serve together in

ministry. Together, they have 7 beautiful children and 5 grandchildren. His favorite saying is, “No matter what you’ve done in life, remember, God still has a plan for you. Repent and get back up. Your future is bright.”

There Is Nothing Like Church at The Faith Place!
