Meet Our Pastor
Pastor John C. Jones II and Wife Mindy Jones
I was a visitor the first time I attended Southwood Baptist. A friend of mine was helping with pulpit supply while the church was looking for a pastor. While I came to hear and support my brother in Christ as he brought the message, I was astonished at how friendly and welcoming the church was to my wife and me. This church embodied their slogan, “The End of Your Search for a Friendly Church.
I did not realize at the time that I would be their pastor; however, I remember saying to my wife in the car, “If felt like we were home” to which she readily agreed. Before I even took the position of Senior Pastor of the Church, I was made to feel a part of the family of God. In Philippians 2:3-5 we read, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.” This is the how the Spirit of God is shown through this congregation.
