Debbie Bailey

Director of HIS Kids Preschool Program

New Hope called Debbie Bailey to be the Children’s Minister in 1988. From her earliest memories she wanted to have an active part in helping children discover and experience the love that God had shown her. Her love for children, as well as families learning of God’s love and how to make His word applicable to their lives, has been a driving force during her ministry. Debbie has transitioned over the years from Children’s Minister, to Preschool/Weekday Minister, to her current position which includes overseeing all preschool areas of the church, as well as administrative duties for the church body. She and her husband Tim raised their three children here at New Hope, and now enjoy watching their children serve the Lord, as well as, their 5 granddaughters and 2 grandsons being nurtured in Christian homes.

Tammy Johnson

Financial Assistant

Tammy and her husband Terry had their two children enrolled in the HIS Kids program many years ago and after the children entered public school, Tammy decided she wanted to work at HIS Kids so she could enjoy being a part time stay at home mom. Tammy came on as an assistant to the director and her responsibilities are taking care of all financial records as well as keeping up with all of the teacher’s training records that are required by childcare licensing.
