Isaac Jones joined the staff of Forest Hills UMC mid-January. He's an East Tennessean through and through, but moved to Nashville in 2011 to attend Vanderbilt University. After getting a degree in Religious and Spiritual Community Development from there, he pursued my Masters in Divinity at Lipscomb University. His ministry experience includes working in a variety of roles at Ethos Church, working with youth at Rocketown, and founding the organization United Nashville.
He's known as a coffee nerd because of his love for craft coffee. He is always available for a nice cup of coffee at The Well and a conversation about superheroes. Likewise, when he's not at a coffee shop, he's with his lovely wife, Chalice. Together, they love to travel, cook, eat, and go on adventures.
The verse that has impacted Isaac's life the most is Isaiah 26:8: "In the path of your judgments, O Lord, we wait for you; your name and your renown are the soul’s desire." He memorized it when he was 18 after attending a Passion Conference in Atlanta, GA, and it has been a verse that has carried him through many trials.
We are very excited to welcome Isaac and look forward to the exciting future of our youth group and the ministries of Forest Hills UMC!
