Early life[edit]

Joni was born as Joni Trammell on July 19, 1960. Her family lived in Greenville, South Carolina through her formative years. Her family were members of the Tremont Avenue Church of God, where Marcus Lamb came as a visiting preacher during a revival. The two met each other at her home church and were married two years later, in 1982. Marcus and Joni traveled for the next few years, visiting churches as evangelists. Then, in 1984, they settled in Montgomery, Alabama where they purchased a full power television station and began teaching the Bible on broadcast television. This continued until 1990, when the couple moved to Dallas and formed another station in the larger Texas market. By 1998, they had raised the funds necessary to start Daystar.[1][2]
