David Hailey has been pastor of Hayes Barton Baptist Church since 1996. A native Midwesterner (Chillicothe, IL), Dave traveled a circuitous route to Raleigh, North Carolina. Educated in Tennessee and Kentucky, he has served churches in Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina, long enough to cultivate a Southern drawl and a love for grits!
Married for more than three decades (37 years this August!), Dave and Susan are the proud parents of three adult children.
Bethany is married to Jerad, a major in the Army, and they are the parents of the world’s two most precious children, Betsy and Drew. They make their home in Columbia, Maryland.
David John is married to Claire, and they live in Chicago where Claire is doing her medical residency at Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago and David John serves as pastor of First Baptist Church of Oak Park, IL.
Susanna, our youngest, is married to Cameron and lives in Raleigh. Susanna works as a political associate for Nexus Strategies, while Cameron works in the financial services industry.
Though not natives of the Old North State, the Haileys have long since considered North Carolina as home. Vacations to both the mountains and the beach have created family memories for a lifetime.
When not at church, Dave likes to read and play golf (though he’s never been any good at it!). Susan, a recently retired high school English teacher, enjoys reading and travel, especially if they involve her beloved Scotland. Both Dave and Susan love showing their true-blue colors by cheering for Duke basketball and football. And yes, Dave will probably never stop celebrating the long-awaited 2016 World Series Championship of the Chicago Cubs!! Go Cubs Go! Make it a Dynasty.

Lisa Anthony came to Hayes Barton Baptist Church as our Church Administrator in August of 2012.

While discerning a call to ordained ministry, Lisa moved to church accounting and has served at Hayes Barton Methodist Church and Highland United Methodist Church.

Lisa’s greatest motivation is to provide financial information that is understandable and meaningful, to the end that the church is able to make ministry decisions, led by God and empowered by knowledge and faith to step outside of comfort zones and make a difference in the world for Christ.
