Superintendent Gerald W. Jones, Sr. was born to the late Paul Jones and Mother Mary L. Jones in Taylor, Texas. Pastor Jones served as Sunday School Superintendent, Sunday School Teacher, YPWW Teacher, District YPWW President, Choir President, Usher and Deacon at his home churches. Pastor Jones’ home churches were Massey Memorial COGIC, of Bartlett, Texas (Elder Richard Massey) and Zion Temple COGIC of Harker Heights, Texas (Superintendent E. R. Billie). He accepted his call to the ministry in 1984, and was licensed a minister in 1985. He was ordained as an Elder in 1987. Prior to establishing Refreshing Springs Church of God in Christ, Pastor Jones worked as a Medical Administrative Officer for the Department of Veterans Affairs. This career allowed him to live in five different states. Each move advanced his career, as well as expanded his vision of ministry in so many different worship experiences. Pastor Jones was destined to relocate to Dallas, Texas in May 1994. It was here that God gave him directions to establish Refreshing Springs Church of God in  Christ, August 1, 1996. Pastor was led to move the church under the leadership of Texas Northeast Third Jurisdiction (the late Bishop F. W. Smith). He later served under Bishop T. W. Johnson and, served as 2nd Administrative Assistant under the leadership of Bishop Nelson Gatlin. The church has grown tremendously since its inception and Pastor Jones determined that it was time to devote all of his time to ministry. He therefore retired from the Department of veterans Affairs after 33 years of federal service. Pastor Jones was appointed to the position of District Superintendent in October 2011. There he serves as Superintendent of the Refreshing Springs District. In early 2016, Superintendent Jones was led to move the church into the newly formed Texas North Central Jurisdiction, under the leadership of Bishop Robert L. Sample. There he serves as 1st Administrative Assistant to the Bishop. Academically, Pastor Jones received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, from American Technological University in Killeen, Texas. He has earned a Masters of Theology and Doctor of Divinity degrees from American International Bible Institute & Seminary of Waco, Texas. Pastor Jones is married to Missionary Ruby L. Jones and they share lives with their children, Gerald II, Anthony, Lamond, Stephanie, Jeremiah (grandson) and Aliyah (granddaughter). My personal Testimony: I consider it an honor and a privilege to serve as Founder and Pastor of this great church. What an awesome God we serve, that He thinks so much of us to stand before His people and expound upon His truths, that souls may be saved. The Gospel we preach, the lessons we teach and the souls we reach, is not about us. It’s all about HIM. We extend to each of you a special invitation to come and experience the Refreshing of the Lord at the SPRINGS. Let God manifest Himself in your life. You simply need to write the vision and make it plain, though it tarry, wait for it; because if will surely come.
