Profile image of Joni Lynch


Church Hostess


Joni’s Second B roots run deep.  She came to Second Baptist as a newlywed when the church was in its first year and soon began her journey serving as coordinator for the junior high, senior high and college departments while also singing in the choir – and having babies!  Her two sons, Bobby and John are now third generation 2B members who were dedicated, baptized, and married by 2B ministers. Now, there are two grandchildren who hear stories of growing up in 2B from their father. 

Joni has always found joy in creating menus and planning events, at one time going to Saudi Arabia to plan events for the Ladies International Women’s Group.  Joni has coordinated many memorable events for Second B including a Luau, a Bar-B-Q and dance, a Premier event where everyone dressed in period dress, walked the red carpet to the dining room decorated with posters of movie star greats and large sized Emmys, and a USO themed event honoring all veterans and a prime rib dinner.  Joni never dreamed that her love for entertaining would change her life’s direction from foreign missionary dreams to the ministry of food service and remaining in Lubbock.
