Bonnie Baker was born in Vredenburgh, Alabama. She is the seventh child born to the late Jack and late Clara Richardson. She was Homecoming Queen of her high school in 1969. She always had big plans for her life.
Bonnie moved to Detroit, Michigan in 1973. The Lord saved her in 1982 and filled her with the Holy Spirit on January 13, 1983. In 1985, she was called into the ministry. As she totally sold out to God, He blessed her with the gifts of intercession, discernment of spirits, prophecy and interpretation, the laying on of hands and the ministry of helps. The Lord also blessed her with the gift of helping people with their Christian walk and giving them a now word from the Lord.
She has been a member of International Gospel Center (IGC) for over thirty-five years. For the first fifteen years, she was under the leadership of the late Apostle Charles O. Miles and under the leadership of current Pastor Marvin N. Miles the last twenty years. She was a Supervisor of the Prayer Line Ministry, Junior Pastor, and Member of the Prison Department, Evangelist Department, and Nurse.
She has been married for over 34 years and counting to Minister Dean Baker, the love of her life. They have four daughters and three grandchildren. During her Christian walk, Bonnie has received many visions and revelations from the Lord. She lives by the scriptures that say God will bless you coming in and going out and He will make you the head and not the tail.
The Lord has favored Bonnie with much success. She now owns her own mortgage company, Flash Mortgage Corporation in Canton, Michigan. In addition, Minister Baker is a Notary public and owns four other companies.
In 2015, the Library of Congress selected Bonnie’s bestselling life story, Then and Now, to be included in their permanent collection. She has also authored three other books, Then and Now - Part 2, Surviving Your Worst Fear, and Birthing Pains.
Bonnie has tasted everything the devil could serve up – yet her life has taken a 180-degree turn. She travels, internationally, preaching the Word of God, declaring that Jesus saves and will save and free you if given the opportunity. Nothing is impossible with God if you allow Him into your heart.
