Minister Ray Bady
Ray Bady began his career as a drummer and eventually recorded solo work for Gospo Centric after years of industry work. But before his solo recordings, Bady either drummed or did production for such successful artists as Kirk Franklin, BeBe Winans, Yolanda Adams, R. Kelly, and still remains the music director for gospel music industry great, Marvin Sapp. In addition to being a drummer, Bady is an accomplished singer, song-writer, producer and minister of the gospel, ordained directly by his father, Pastor O.D. Bady Sr.
In the year 2000, he signed a deal with Gospo Centric and put his talents to work and recorded his solo debut album, Mission K.O.B. (Keep on Believing). He co- wrote and co-produced the album with his brother, gospel legend Percy Bady.
While Bady was diligently at work ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ through song, God had even more in store for him. God called him to another level in ministry through preaching and teaching the Word of God. In 2005 he was offered the position of youth pastor at the largest United Methodist Church in the country, Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, TX, where Kirbyjon Caldwell is senior pastor. It was in this same year that his 14 year old son was diagnosed with cancer. Knowing God to be a healer and a miracle worker, Bady accepted the assignment and moved forward. On his faith walk with the Lord, his son is now 100% healed of cancer, and the youth church grew from a humble average of 25-35 students and now averages well over 500 plus students every Sunday. To God be the glory for the things that HE has done. God is Awesome, and truly in Charge!!!
Ray Bady is a devoted husband of over 25 years to Chilond Bady and father of two (Charte’se and Jaimond). He takes pride in his accomplishments with his family and as a man of integrity who truly loves God and puts Jesus Christ first in his life.
