Biography

Helen Baylor is a native Californian, now residing in the Atlanta, Georgia area. She is the wife of James Baylor and the mother of three sons and one daughter. Baylor and her family are members of Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral where Bishop Dale C. Bronner is the Pastor.

Helen became a born-again Christian in 1981 after a 12 year drug addiction that nearly claimed her life. She greatly credits the prayers of her grandmother, the late, Mother Minnie Hudson, for her return to the God of her childhood. After spending her early formative years attending church with her grandmother in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Helen began singing in nightclubs in the Los Angeles, California, at the age of 13.

Helen went on to record her first single at the age of 13 and became an opening act for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and others.

Helen spent most of her young adult years chasing her dream of becoming a star but was caught in a web of alcohol and drugs by her 18th birthday.

After returning to God in 1981, Helen began attending and soon became a member of Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles, California.

A faithful member, Helen became an employee of the church and later joined the choir.

In 1992, Helen became a member of the FICWFM (Fellowship of Inner-City Word of Faith Ministries), an organization founded by Dr. Frederick K.C. Price.

In 1993, Helen was ordained to the Gospel Ministry by Dr. Frederick K.C. Price and in February 1995 received an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Sacred Music from Friends International Christian University, in Merced, California.

God has gifted Helen Baylor to sing and teach the Word powerfully and under the anointing. She candidly shares her testimony with a heart to reach the lost and encourage the believer.
