Jones grew up in a small community in Southern Louisiana. As a child, challenge was the norm. He experienced prejudice from the white culture and ostracism from the black culture because he was unusually articulate. He excelled in his studies and graduated summa cum laude from Fisk University and earned a master’s degree from Vanderbilt University on full scholarship.

In spite of his academic success, he struggled in many areas until he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This is when he began to abound in his faith and become aware of his call to the ministry. Today, Jones is a powerhouse preacher, teacher and mentor who shares life-changing messages. The Lord confirms his ministry in many ways. He has seen cancer healed, sight restored, children healed from cognitive challenges, marriages restored, financial miracles, and many delivered from demonic possession.

What is the word he is hearing for men in this season?

“Now, more than any other time it’s important for men to develop the ability to see clearly in the spirit realm,” Jones said. “Like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, God wants to lead us personally through each challenge to the place of promise He has given us. Our responsibility is to get ourselves in the position to hear God.”

After a divine shift, God has returned Jones to the educational arena as director of recruitment and admission at Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn. – a role he sees clearly as a mandate to bring the Kingdom of God to the world of academia. Last year Jones launched the Jubilee Nation Church near the Fisk University campus.

The FGBMFI is an arm of the church dedicated to bringing transformation to men through the power of the Holy Spirit. Chapter members and speakers come from all vocations and Christian affiliations. Ladies are welcome.
