Lady Tonetta Bynes


Tonetta Bynes serves as First Lady of Word of Life Empowerment Center. She graciously serves alongside her husband to assist him in fulfilling the vision God has given to him.

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12)

Lady Bynes holds an associate’s degree in Biblical Studies from Truth Bible College in Jacksonville, Florida and she is certified

as a gap stander (intercessor) from Truth Bible College. (Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15)


Lady Bynes is the youngest daughter of Pastor, District Elder Tony, and Lady Elect Yvonne Lane. She has served as Sunday school Teacher, musician, praise and worship leader, usher, altar call worker, cleanup committee, and much more. Her willingness to work in the House of God has allowed her to hold local, state, and international positions with the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. (Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak; for your work shall be rewarded. 2 Chronicles 15:7)


Lady Bynes career experiences include Human Resources with Florida Blue both in the city of Jacksonville and Miami. She also worked for UF Health (Shands Jacksonville). The Lord has since opened the door for her to be a stay at home mom, where she now does consulting work through the personal HR business she co owns with her husband. She is one of the co-authors of the book entitled “50 Shades of Change” authored by Dr. Carolyn Boston Love.


Lady Bynes can look back over her life, and see how God was preparing her for such a time as this. The experiences she’s gained, lessons learned, exemplary parents as role models as well as, many other seasoned, strong women and men in the body of Christ has allowed her to be well equipped to serve Gods people in this capacity. She is excited to be a servant in the Body of Christ! (Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee…. Jeremiah 1:5a)
