Leadership

Lubbock Impact is guided by a Board of Directors made up of men and women from throughout Lubbock. Considered a working board, they meet monthly to oversee the major activities of this ministry. Several of them also take a role in the weekly activities, serving in spots all over the building on any given Wednesday evening. All members of our board are well-versed and would be glad to meet with area businesses, churches, or individuals about potential partnerships with Lubbock Impact.

Board of Directors

Jason Pace

Chairman

Jason is a senior project manager for United Supermarkets. He also has certification in industrial maintenance, specializing in refrigeration. He was most recently seen on top of the Lubbock Impact building devising a plan for preservation of our bell tower and devising a hopeful plan for the relocation of our pigeons. Jason, his wife, and his son are active in their church.

Clyde Brazell

Board Member, United States Postal Service (Retired)

Clyde was a member of Trinity Baptist Church since 1948. He is our walking encyclopedia as far as our building. On any given Wednesday you can find Clyde acting as the ‘bouncer’ of our east side! He makes sure everyone gets to their proper bible studies and is the safety monitor of the stairs as children go to their classes. Clyde and his wife are some of the founders of Lubbock Impact.

Lynn Elms

Board Member

Lynn enjoys visiting with clients as she serves them in the food voucher area. She is a former educator and still takes an active role in support youth, especially in theater areas. She acts as a judge for UIL events throughout the area. A strong supporter of the Lubbock community, Lynn is a member of the Lions Club, BSF, and Lubbock Altrusa-Dawners. Lynn is a Goodwill member emeritus; she and her late husband are responsible for the Elms Technology Center at the Lubbock Goodwill.

Linda Gober

Board Member

Linda is a long-time Lubbockite and has a kindness that shows as she works with our clients in the Food Voucher area each week. Her knowledge of the education system and secondary education comes from serving as Dean of Students for South Plains College. Linda has roots that are deep in the philanthropic world of Lubbock, and she also enjoys many fun or educational groups including the ‘Mystery Book Club’.

Jerry Joplin

Board Member

Jerry is the head of the Lubbock Area Baptist Association. He came to Lubbock from Clyde, TX and served as pastor of Bacon Heights before he took his position at the helm of LABA. Caring for those that are caring for others is his forte, as he and his wife instruct local ministers in the area of compassion fatigue and renewal. Jerry and his wife, Karla, can be found each week at Lubbock Impact serving a meal to the clients that are going to be seen in the med clinic. Jerry has three children that are all married and live locally, and four grandchildren so far!

David Ray

Board Member

David has many stories to tell about being a youth in the building that houses Lubbock Impact, as it was formerly the Trinity Baptist Church building. Serving as teacher, coach, and counselor in LISD, he has a unique understanding of children, youth, and their families. As the owner of the local business, The Brick Doctor, David’s expertise in keeping old buildings alive is vital to our board. David and his wife have been active volunteers since the inception of Lubbock Impact. Each week David can be found helping clients in the Emergency Food Pantry.
