Ministry Perspective from Pastors’ Wives

Dr. Mark Bailey, president of DTS, and Dr. Joe Allen, campus pastor at DTS, talk with their wives, Barby and Lindsey, about their experiences in ministry as pastors’ wives and partners in the local church.

Barby Bailey
Mrs. Barbara Bailey has a deep passion and long history of service to Christian ministry, including her present work as the wife of Dallas Theological Seminary President, Dr. Mark Bailey. For over 30 years, Barby has ministered to women through leading Bible studies and speaking at women’s retreats. As the wife of a pastor and theological professor, she has shared in her husband’s ministry to shepherd and teach. In her current role of President’s wife, she travels extensively with her husband and heads up the faculty wives’ functions, and mentors some student wives through DTS’s Seminary Wives in Ministry program.

The Allens have two married children and two grandchildren. Both of their children serve in vocational Christian ministry. Joe currently serves as our Campus Pastor at Dallas Theological Seminary.
