Sister Barbara J. Jones
Trustee Jones is a native of New Bern, North Carolina; she has lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania over 47 years.
Reverend James H. Milteer was her Pastor and his wife, Sister Gwendolyn Milteer was her Sunday School Teacher in New Bern; he also served as her Pastor at Berean Baptist Church, when she moved here.

But, her greatest accomplishment was accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord & Savior at a very young age.

As quoted by Trustee Jones, “I have made many mistakes in life, had many heartaches and setbacks. But, because of God’s grace and mercy, I am here to tell others that Jesus Saves. I will continue to serve Jesus Christ & Him only.”
