Speaker: Michael Jones
Pastor Michael Jones was saved at the age of six during a revival service at Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Kentucky. Upon surrendering to the call to preach at the age of seventeen, he preached his first sermon in a local church two weeks later and has continued to preach since that time. In 2000, he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Theology and a Master of Arts Degree in Ministry from The Crown College in Powell, Tennessee.
Pastor Jones served as Assistant Pastor at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Lebanon, Missouri, and later as Assistant Pastor at Marion Avenue Baptist Church in Washington, Iowa. Under both roles he worked primarily with youth and teens.
After sensing God’s definite call to pastor, he was called to serve as Pastor of Victory Baptist Church in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina in 2005. Under his leadership, Victory Baptist Church experienced enormous church growth and saw souls saved and baptized on a weekly basis.
In 2013 Pastor Jones accepted the pastorate of First Baptist Church in Long Beach, CA where God used him for a short time to lead the church. Pastor Jones is currently serving as the Senior Pastor of Oakwood Baptist Church in Anderson, NC. Pastor Jones and his wife, Mindy, have five children: Molly, Matthew, Macy, Merry, and Mark.
