Hi, my name is Stephen Jones, and I’m a sinner saved by grace. God has blessed me with a wonderful Savior, a precious wife, and three incredible children. You can read more of my salvation testimony here.
I have the privilege of being called “Pastor” every week by the people of First Southern Baptist Church in Yucca Valley, California. I also teach a couple Supervised Church Ministry courses at California Baptist University.
As a pastor, my main duty is to shepherd God’s flock and preach God’s Word, equipping the saints for the work of the ministry and encourage them toward greater Christlikeness (Eph. 4:11-13). I love to teach and have a heart for leadership development and church revitalization.
In my free time, you’ll probably find me hiking, gardening, reading, admiring God’s handiwork in the night sky, or hanging out with my wife and kids.
