Reverend Diane Jones confessed her hope in Christ at the tender age of 5, for 23 years she cultivated her relationship with Christ, in 1988 while singing at a musical” I can’t hold back this joy I share with thee” she received a revelation from Christ that she was to fully live her life for him. She confesses she has always been church but church wasn’t always in her, from that Holy Ghost encounter until this day she has become a GOD chaser. During prayer intercession in 2006 she heard to voice of Jesus to declare the Gospel, she again in the fall of 2006 was given another God revelation to tell them that “He is coming back”.
In September 2001 after many years of wanting to deepen her relationship with GOD and work in the vineyard led her to an SBC Bible Study class “Experiencing God”, being a non- member at the time, she felt so loved and at peace in this ministry she decided to move her membership from her Chicagoland church to join the SBC family.
