Sunday - 11AM Worship Service

Reverend Wanda N. Golden

Our Lady Golden, Our Queen!

Wanda Allender Golden is the daughter of the late Leonard & Nannie Allender. Forever a “daddy's girl”, she nonetheless, bears a strong resemblance to her mom. A gifted multi-tasker, she serves as the First Lady and Co-leader of the New Unity Baptist Church Ministries under the leadership of her husband–pastor, the Reverend Johnny N. Golden, Sr. A prayer vessel and singer–psalmist, Lady Golden is imbued with a genuine quality of grace and humility. “All that I am is because of Christ in my life,” has been her lifelong motto.

The mother of two, Keenya and “Boomer” (Johnny Jr.); and grandmother of 9 (Nia Imani Christian, Jaden Syniah, Kennedy Johnelle, Delray Talib Nathaniel, Zion Loretta, Trinity Rosa, Taylor, Payton Miracle, and Langston she is affectionately known by her little jewels as “Bebe”.

Reverend Golden is a lifelong resident of Maryland and is a graduate of Notre Dame University of Maryland where she received her Bachelors Degree, and also received her Associate's Degree from Villa Julie College-Stevensons University of Maryland. Rev. Wanda is currently pursuing her Masters Degree at St. Mary's Ecumenical Institute of Theology. 

In May 2003, along with her husband-pastor, Reverend Golden was blessed to lead the New Unity Church Ministries family to a magnificent new cathedral of worship in downtown Baltimore, situated right in the heart of the city.

Blessed with the twin assets of intuition and intellect, many ministries have been birthed by her. The Greenhouse Youth Ministry, The Sarah′s Daughters Women′s Ministry, and The Daughters of Zelophahed Young Adult Ministry, are but a few. Presently, she is the lead teacher and guiding force behind the outstanding Steward’s Ministry. 

New Unity′s vision is to ‘Build a City’ and Reverend Golden helps lead the charge as she Equips, Empowers, Enriches, and Enlightens the People of Faith for Kingdom service.

To God Be the Glory!
