Known as one of the fastest growing churches in the metro-area, the church is led by Pastor Dr. Arthur T. Jones, Jr. and his beautiful wife, Lady Tonya. Pastor Jones stands proudly upon three cornerstones of manhood which he lives and leads by, Priest. Provider. And Protector. One of the most enterprising and spiritually intellectual leaders of his time, he is an innovator at heart in the body of Christ who has been given a “New Ministry for a New Day”.
A native of Jacksonville, FL, Pastor Dr. Arthur Jones was groomed under the leadership of his father, Bishop Arthur T. Jones, Sr., founding bishop of All People International Church in Jacksonville. With a rich heritage in ministry, Pastor Jones stands on fundamental biblical principles to lead a church where people will be inspired to live a “God First” life, through relevant teaching, preaching and application of God’s word.
It was four years ago when The Jones’, a young married couple just starting a family, made the courageous move from Jacksonville to build a church in the Atlanta area, Pastor Jones shares, “In the midst of what is now known as the great recession of 2009, God impressed upon my heart that it was the right time to launch Impact Worship Center, the place that is Committed to the Success of each parishioners journey.” He continues, “The challenge of the time placed a demand on my faith and with faith in God, all things are possible. The fascinating success of this ministry cannot be attributed to the intellectual prowess or the charismatic appeal of a man, but rather the hand of God that is upon this ministry because our passion is to build a people that He can be proud of.”
With the church located in the heart of Smyrna and conveniently situated off I-285, Impact Worship Center is a place that members come to experience an empowering and refreshing life changing move of God. IWC is a place where everyone is known as a “V.I.P” which stands for “Victorious, Influential & Powerful”, one of the many compelling declarations of its members.
