Pastor Rev. Joseph Jones, Sr.

Reverend Jones answered the call to the ministry in 1992 and was licensed to preach. He has ministered as Director of Visitation, Pastoral Care Giver and Assistant to the Pastor. In April 1994, he was ordained by the North Jersey Council. In December 1995, when Monumental was without a pastor, he served as Acting Pastor and in 1996 as Interim Pastor. In April 1997, Reverend Jones was called to serve as Pastor Elect and shortly thereafter as Pastor of Monumental Baptist Church.
