Serving as the dedicated founder and senior pastor of Greater Deliverance Church, located in St. Louis, MO, Pastor Terrence Jones is happily married to First Lady Cassandra Jones and is the proud father of their two children.
Born and reared in St. Louis, Missouri to Mother Ann Jones, Pastor Jones knew that there was something different about his life. Early on in his childhood, it was prophesied that one day he would preach the gospel. As a child, he was used by God through his many gifts of the spirit, including the gift of prophesy.
After receiving an academically rich public school education in St. Louis, Pastor Jones attended Saint Louis Community College at Forest Park where he majored in criminal justice and went on to earn a Bachelor’s of Arts in Biblical Studies. In addition, he had the privilege of working in the field of Corporate Security Leadership. His expertise afforded him opportunities within management at Sears Holdings Corporation. Here he met his lovely wife, Cassandra. Currently serving in Law Enforcement Leadership as a Watch Commander, he also serves as a Spiritual Advisor for 2 police chiefs and their department. Pastor Jones continues to collaborate with neighbors and stakeholders as a pillar and pastor in his community.
Reaching such an academic plateau and several years of preaching and teaching the gospel as a minister and evangelist, Pastor Jones felt the leading of the Lord to plant the Greater Deliverance Church. As the founder, Pastor Jones has led his church and parishioners while delving deeply into the community giving back to families. To reach more people, Pastor Jones hosts a prayer call called The Morning Prophetic Encounter Monday-Friday 6am central time.
Through Greater Deliverance Church’s vision, Pastor Jones believes in inclusion. His church’s mission is to provide all races, creeds and cultures with a Christ-centered worship, ministry, and educational campus. Through a multiplicity of dynamic support ministries, we will meet the needs of Christians and non-Christians throughout the world.
He has collaborated to secure a connection with the community by spearheading events such as food/diaper giveaways, annual Community Day and the Community Health Fair, Back to School events, Family Skate Nights and Free-Lunch Friday with the local radio station, which he plans to continue. He lives through and teaches Greater Deliverance Church’s mission: To passionately pursue the work of the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and to serve, through the Gospel, as a vessel for effecting positive change within the people and communities we touch. To this day Pastor Jones continues to teach the Apostles’ doctrine and is proud of the name of Jesus.
