Christian Music Leader

Christian Music Leader

My name is Dylan Bailey and I am studying at Christian Leaders Institute to be a Christian music leader. I am 26 years old, and when I was 10, my family and I came to know Christ. While we spent years seeking Him, I started to drift away when I was 16. I fell into a life of sin, where my only focus was to please myself. Years passed, and I struggled with depression, loneliness, and just a general lack of fulfillment.

Around the age of 22, I had a serious problem occur with my wrist, where I couldn’t even hold a remote. The doctors told me I would have to stay on arthritis medicine, and I’d have to be extremely careful with my wrist. I was pursuing music at that time, so not being able to play guitar threw me into a deep depression.

It was around this time that God made himself clear to me. My family and I were attending one Sunday at a nearby church and the pastor preached on Mark three about the man with the crippled hand. I felt God speaking to me. So like the man from Mark three did, I just reached my hand out and I believed I was healed. While my healing didn’t come immediately, God did perform a miracle. I do not need medicine anymore.

I play guitar and sing every week at my church now. Not only that, but God has shown me my calling as a worship leader and a Christian musician. Being able to minister through music has brought me an immense amount of joy. I am so thankful I can do this! I am also thankful that I can study to be a Christian music leader at CLI!
