\nPastor Norris Alfonso Pressley Jones, a native of Fairmont Heights, MD was reared by his adored grandparents Ignatius and Cora Bryant with permission of his parents Walter and Margarite Jones. Pastor Jones founded the Philadelphia Community Baptist Church in 1989 where he served God's people until his retirement for 23 years with vigor and diligence, along with his family, that God's people would live a quality life with Jesus Christ as head of the family. He also pastored at the Bethel Baptist Church in King George, VA.\n\nPastor Jones served many pastors after his call into the ministry which foundationally he experienced as a young man under the leadership of the late Bishop George B. White, Apostolic Church of God. He served as a youth Pastor as well as the Christian Education Director/Minister under Bishop Harvey Lewis, Senior, Star of Bethlehem COGIC, the late Bishop Paul Gaskins, Angelic Church of Christ, Pastor Herbert Johnson and Bishop Asbury R. Sellers of the Central Avenue Church of God and Pastor T.L. Rogers at the St. Stephens Baptist Church and the Triumphant Baptist Church.\n\nPastor Jones completed a Master's degree in Education after completing a B.S. in Mathematics and serving in the Armed Forces. His passion was teaching, first the Word of God and then Math, Social Studies and Athletic disciplines.\n\nPastor Jones had retired from the responsibility of shepherding a church, but not from preaching, teaching, and winning souls for the Kingdom of God. He is saved, sanctified through the Truth, God's Word is Truth and baptized and filled with God's Holy Ghost. He is yet a Church Without Walls, a Pillar in the Kingdom, along with his wife Dr. Linda Jones, daughters, Lynnita, Norlyque and Lynura and sons in law; Paul Morton, Derrick Redd, and Paul Jackson. The highlight of his life are his grandchildren Haj, Teonna, Nariah, Skyla and Dracen. Pastor Jones and his family lives by the call, Be Faithful to God and God will be Faithful to you.
