Born January 16, 1959 in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from high school, Bynum started preaching in nearby churches and at revivals. Of the word-faith movement.
"....But never in this hour-plus tirade was there a call to repentance. The call was to give money. No repentance. No study of the Word. No call to obedience. ....."

".... Grady's editorial called Juanita Bynum on her bad behaviour leading up to the incident:
"I'm all for rousing sermons, but what Bynum often offers her audiences is downright mean. Eleven days before the Atlanta incident, Bynum told women at a large conference that they needed to learn to become harsh. Shocking clips of her comments were then posted on YouTube. Bynum told of how she corrected an unnamed assistant for being too nice when carrying out her orders. 'I'm trying to teach you to be a bulldog!' she declared with gritted teeth and a hateful expression."
"When women did not shout loud enough after her comments, Bynum threatened them too.'If somebody don't start praising God right here, I'm gonna have to hit somebody with this microphone,' she said. She also implied that women who treat others with polite restraint are 'too suburb' and need to learn the street-wise tactics of the ghetto."
"Is this the new face of domestic violence? An angry woman preacher who threatens to hit people? A 'bulldog' who barks orders and treats subordinates rudely? Please."
