    A Tribute to 21st Century Christian Laymen

    David's Mighty Men

    It was the fall of 1961 and I was entering my senior year at Northwest University. I was in need of some practical experience as a pastor for upon graduation I would be answering the call of an Assemblies of God congregation to become pastor.

    My best friend at Northwest was Gene Kinney. Gene was serving an internship at Brighton Assembly of God in Seattle with Pastor C. David Jones. Pastor Jones approached Gene, inquiring of him if he knew anyone at Northwest who would make a good intern. A neighboring Assemblies of God pastor was seeking an intern. Gene recommended me. I accepted the offer extended to me by Pastor Harold Actipis and the congregation of Beacon Assembly of God. As you see, my first position in ministry was due to Dr. Jones. and his assistant, Eugene Kinney. It is a joy to me to have the privilege of writing a review o f this unique and extraordinary book. While it is, as the subtitle states, "a tribute to 21st Century Christian Laymen," it is also an extremely interesting, readable, and enjoyable autobiography of the ministerial life of Dr. Jones.

    The chapters I enjoyed the most were chapter 4 in which Dr. Jones relates several stories: 1) the story of his service as pastor of the Brighton church at which time he was also, 2) a student at Northwest University pursuing a graduate degree in theology, 3) and the story of his conversion from "landlubber" to "yachtsman" with the purchase of the 21' Marilynne I.

    As well, the story in chapter 5, when unbeknown to me at the time, we passed as ships in the night, when Dr. Jones was called to the Kennydale United Methodist Church in Renton, Washington, our family lived about 6 blocks from that church.

    The rest of the chapters in "David's Mighty Men." are equally of interest for their story value alone, besides the valuable lessons taught by this seasoned man of the cloth. While the book will be of value as an entertaining read to people of all walks of life, it will be especially valuable as a gift to pastors young or seasoned, or in between, and lay-persons in leadership roles. I highly recommend "David's Mighty Men."

    Dr. Jones wrote in the forward of his book:

    "Over the half-century of my active years in Christian ministry, both as a pastor and as a professor in academia, like my namesake David I have had the good fortune to have been surrounded by a host of men-and women-who have been to me what King David's Mighty Men were to him. Without the loyalty and support of these devout Christian warriors, I would have been vulnerable and defeated. . . ."

    Professor of Church Growth and Renewal
