Meet the Author

David Jones is the pastor of Orlando Presbyterian Church in Orlando, Florida and author of eight books and collections.

David grew up in the shadow of a textile mill in South Carolina where his father worked as the plant manager. In the mill village he learned about hard work, league softball, church picnics, neighborhood hospitality, and front porch story tellers. At age nineteen, David got his first job running a church youth program and took his father's work ethic and sense of the southern parish into the pastorate. Along the way, he met Carrie Richards from Ada, Michigan and convinced her to give up cold winters for hot summers and join him on the coast of South Carolina. Today, they live outside in Orlando Florida where David is the pastor of Orlando Presbyterian Church (orlandopres.org).

Here is how one reader described David, "Very few storytellers are the storyteller that David Jones is. He spins a tale to make a point and, in doing so, reveals truth through laughter. The tale becomes the memory tool so that the "ah-ha" moments become imprinted on your mind and can be retrieved for future inspiration."
