When speaking about the value of marriage at Stand for Truth’s California Christian Apologetics Conference, Voddie Baucham said, “It is utterly unforgivable for a man who follows Christ to quit loving his wife.”
Voddie is not only a pastor but also an author, professor, conference speaker, church planter, and husband to the love of his life.
Mrs. Voddie Baucham and his family
Bridget Baucham, his 32-year-old wife, is one of Voddie’s most vocal supporters. They got married on June 30, 1989, and had just celebrated 32 years of marriage.
Jasmine Baucham, Trey Baucham, Voddie Baucham III, Elijah Baucham, Asher Baucham, Judah Baucham, Micah Baucham, Safya Baucham, Amos Baucham, and Simeon Baucham are the nine children that Voddie and Bridget have together.
Jasmine, now Jasmine Holmes, is their eldest child and a married mother. “Mother and Son,” her most recent book, was just released.
Voddie insisted on homeschooling each of his kids because he believed that doing so would expose them to indoctrination. Voddie opposed Christians sending their kids to public schools.
Baucham has come under fire from those who are aware of him for his extreme ideas on child-rearing. Baucham also agrees with the concept of a “stay-at-home daughter.”
Additionally, he and his family currently reside in Zambia after moving there in 2015 in response to being hired as a faculty member at African Christian University.
Voddie is one of the most prominent Christian speakers in the world today, and he currently lives a simple life and makes a comfortable living.

The early years, and parents of Voddie Baucham
Voddie was born to African-American parents on March 11, 1969. He was brought up in a non-religious single-parent home in Los Angeles, California. He did, however, become a Christian when he was 18 years old.
At New Mexico State University, Voddie was a tight end for the varsity football team. Later, he changed schools to Houston, Texas Rice University.
He gave up on his aspirations of playing professional football, though, and enrolled at Houston Baptist University after experiencing a religious awakening.
He majored in Sociology and Christianity, and from the prestigious Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, he later obtained his Master of Divinity.
He then earned his doctorate in ministry from the same university after completing a course there.
He is 52 years old as of 2021, and he has contributed his voice and starred in a few documentaries. He provided the narration for the 2010 biographical film George Washington Carver: An Uncommon Way.
Heart failure struck him in February 2021. For his medical costs, a GoFundMe campaign was started, and in just five days, approximately 1.3 million dollars were raised. The amount raised was more than the expected $1 million price tag for his care.
He currently works at African Christian University in Lusaka and is in good health.
