Asheville Church Welcomes New Pastor
New Life Community Church of Asheville is extremely excited to announce the arrival of their new Lead Pastor, Martin Jones, who will begin preaching duties May 31st.
In 2006, sensing the call to leave his law practice and enter the ministry, Martin and his family moved to Dallas where he completed a Masters of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and earned the Chuck Swindoll Expository Preaching Award. His personal mission is “to make and mature followers of Jesus.” Martin’s passionate and engaging delivery and his penchant for relevant sermon content provide a compelling experience for those who are followers of Christ as well as for those seeking to know more about Christianity and the claims of Christ.
Martin’s wife, Fiona, has Scottish ancestry. She was born in England and spent most of her life living there until moving to the states in 2007. She holds a Master’s Degree in English from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and is a certified High School English teacher. The Jones have two teenage children, Nathan and Olivia.
Passionate about engaging culture, Martin believes the role of every Christian is to take the timeless truth of the gospel and make it known in a way that people today can understand and apply it. You'll often hear him quote 1 Corinthians 9:22, "I have become all things to all people so that by all means possible some might be saved."
Please come as you are and join us to welcome the Jones family to Asheville as New Life begins a new season of ministry, continuing its presence in the City with acts of service, expressions of grace and enriching ministry which is faithful to the word of God. Our address is 1417 Riverside Drive and at www.newlifeofasheville.com
