||Pastor Bayless Conley
Bayless Conley is a church leader and speaker, known for both his clear presentation of the Bible message and the way he applies it to everyday life.
Bayless grew up in Southern California where, during his teenage years, he became involved in a lifestyle of drug and alcohol abuse. After years of searching for truth, and a number of near-death experiences, he found answers and freedom in Jesus when a 12-year-old boy shared God’s message of hope with him in a park one day.
Bayless’ unique background and remarkable story have enabled him to reach a diverse audience globally. His television program, Answers with Bayless Conley, reaches into over 100 nations of the world.
Bayless and his wife, Janet, are the parents of three grown children, and enthusiastic grandparents to grandsons, Asher and Sawyer. Together they lead Cottonwood Church in Orange County, California, and passionately pursue life, God, and family. In 1979, God clearly spoke to Bayless about preaching on television.
“The possibility of this happening seemed as far away as the moon,” says Bayless. “Yet I wrote it down on a 3 x 5 note card, which I still have.” It was just a few years later that the ministry aired its first broadcast.
Since then, God has opened the television airwaves to our Answers program across the United States and around the world. Currently we are privileged to air the broadcast each week in a number of different languages, in more than 100 nations all over the globe.
Answers with Bayless Conley brings practical teaching from the Bible in a non-religious way. The program appeals to an audience comprised of all backgrounds, ages, and cultures; the underlying message is: ”God has answers for you in His Word, the Bible.”
We have been privileged to pioneer Christian broadcasts on a number of channels around the world, including Zee TV in India and CNBC in Europe.
“For years I struggled with drugs and alcohol while searching for answers,” says Bayless. “It wasn’t until I was more than 20 years of age that a 12-year-old boy showed me the powerful reality of a relationship with Christ. Jesus was The Answer I was looking for, yet nobody had made His message real and understandable to me. I never forget where I came from, nor how broken and hurting I once was before a simple and clear Gospel message changed my life. Because of this, I strive to make the message of Christ understandable and relevant to the everyday lives of people.
“Even as a young Christian, I was still so filled with questions. I saw a guy in the park one day, and he had a sticker on his guitar case. It said ‘Answers—they are in the Bible.’ I was so struck by that, that I went out and got one, myself, and put it on my guitar case. That is where the name for our broadcast came from, because the answers to life will only be found in the Bible.”
