January 21- Blake Jones was installed at Orangevale Church. Blake joined our territory from the Florida Conference. He explains, “I wasn’t looking to move to California until my friend talked me into it. From there, I felt this is where God wanted me to go.”
That friend was Kevin Robert, church growth and evangelism director. Robert said, “I got him into this. Blake clearly sees the pastoral ministry and how it is a calling to be an equipper of the saints, but not one that hovers over the members. He will do a great job!”
Jones describes, “I’m very passionate about equipping people to be fruitful disciples of Jesus.”
Blake has been married to Cris, his wife of 16 years. They have two children, Lucas-12, and Sofia-8.
