About Greg Jones:
Born in Moncton, Greg spent most of his school years in Riverview, NB, and it was at Riverview United Baptist Church that he accepted Christ and began to be challenged with what it meant to be His follower. Following graduation from Riverview High School in 1977, Greg studied at Mount Allison University, Atlantic Baptist College, and then Mount Allison again where in 1982 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Sociology. Because of a desire for a year of theological study for the purpose of integration, Greg went to Regent College in Vancouver for what he thought would be one year. It was during that year, however, that he began to discern a call to the pastoral ministry and so, after being married in NB in the summer of 1983, he and his wife Wendy returned to Vancouver for another two years to complete a MDiv.
In April 2002, Greg was called to a dual portfolio with the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches, serving as Director of Development as well as Regional Minister for Region 6 (Southwest NB).
Currently Greg serves as an Associate Executive Minister as Director of the Centre for Congregational Renewal. He also is the interim director of the Atlantic Baptist Mission Board and oversees pastoral placement and assisting churches seeking pastors.
