Dr. Bishop Barbara Farmer is a woman of many gifts and roles. She is a daughter, wife, mother, teacher, counselor, elder, composer and minister of music. Pastor Farmer is the second of six children born to Bishop Lillian Ward and Elder Edward Ward, Sr. She was born on September 5, 1950 in Philadelphia, PA.

She was baptized at the age of seven in the Delaware River and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost at the age of eleven under the Pastorate of the late Bishop L. Colene Williams of Holy Temple Church of the Living God in Pennsgrove, New Jersey. Pastor Farmer was raised in Philadelphia and graduated from the South Philadelphia High School. She attended West Chester University where she started the first gospel choir. This choir still performs today and is an active part of the college’s music. After graduating from college, Pastor Farmer began her teaching career at the Wagner Junior High School in Philadelphia.

Here, she started the Wagner Junior High School Gospel Choir. She sang, directed the choir, and composed music. Under her leadership, the choir sang throughout the Philadelphia area, UNAC in Washington, DC and many cities along the East coast. This pioneering effort later opened the door for many other junior high and high schools to have gospel music in their curriculum.

In 1977 Pastor Farmer and members of the Wagner Junior High School Gospel Choir who graduated formed the Wagner Alumni Gospel Choir, which has recorded many albums. Singing, choir directing and writing music is an extension of the calling of God on her life. Read more on Last.fm.
