First of all, my name is Keith Jones and I am a child of the One true King. My life is a story of how God can and will call anyone to do His work. I get too passionate at times, work too much, and often speak on shear emotion; but, I love fiercly, honesty is my favorite virtue, and God’s word is what drives my thougths. I say this to let you know that I don’t have all the answers, but I do know this- Romans 6:23 tells us “For the wages of sin is death.” I am a sinner who yet lives, so in the words of Dave Ramsey, “I am better than I deserve.”
I am a husband. My wife Jan and I have been happily married for 11 years and I can not imagine life without my bestfriend and partner in life. She has been my anchor and I am blessed to call her my love.
I am a father. As a man who is a bit of a workaholic, this is my favortie job. God has blessed me with two legitimate miracles- my two boys Michael and Aaron. I will spare the details, but believe me when I say that the only way we have our sons is by divine intervention.
I am a writer. I love to write. This is why I have this blog. I am currently working on my first book on bi-vocational ministry. I don’t have life altering knowledge, nor do I have the captivating writing skills of a novelist- I merely have God’s Word and what He places on my heart to communicate. I have one outlet currently as I am a bible study writer for Youth Leaders Only magazine as a part of the Interlinc program.
I am a teacher & former high school baseball coach. I am a bi-vocational teacher and Pastor. I teach history at Jefferson County High School. I believe that my bi-vocation is for a purpose as I get to minister at the school through FCA. I coached baseball for 10 years after a lifetime career of playing baseball all the way through college baseball at King College.
Lastly, I am the Student Pastor of City View Baptist Church. I have the opportunity to minister to the greatest group of teenagers on the planet. God has blessed my life through this ministry and it has forever changed my life. I seek to serve these young people and my church with my constant prayer that God get me out of the way and use me to help build His Kingdom
I am affectionately known as Rev. Brother Coach.
