Reverend Dr. Lorenzo Augustus Lynch, Sr. was born in Oak City, North Carolina on April 21, 1932, to the late Augustus Claude and Carrie Burnette Lynch. He departed this world on January 22, 2023, after a brief illness.

Lorenzo Lynch was the fourth generation of Baptist ministers in his family and in 2023 celebrated 73 years in the ministry. He was licensed to preach in 1950 by the Lynch's Chapel Baptist Church of Oak City, North Carolina, under the pastorate of his father the late Reverend Augustus C. Lynch. That year he was also ordained to the Gospel Ministry by the Middle Ground Baptist Association. Prior to entering the ministry, he served as Church School Superintendent, Teacher, Youth Chairman, and Deacon in his home church.
