Pastor Dennis Carl Jones is a native of Shreveport, Louisiana. He accepted Christ at an early age and united with Canaan Baptist Church of Gloster, Louisiana under the leadership of Reverend W. L. Davis. Pastor Jones accepted the call to the Gospel Ministry and preached his initial message at the Baptist Temple Church of Shreveport, Louisiana in August 1978. Currently he is a member of the Mount Canaan Baptist Church of Shreveport, Louisiana, under the pastoral leadership of Dr. Harry Blake. On April 11, 1998, Rev. Dennis Carl Jones was elected the 5th Pastor of the Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church.
Pastor Jones has a dual focus for the Church, to address the needs of the community both spiritually and physically. Ministering to these needs include: increasing attendance at Thursday Night Live Bible Study, increasing participation in evangelism through the S.W.A.T. (Soul Winning Action Team) Ministry; which is supported by the Door-to Door, Prayer, Homeless, Hospital, Nursing Home & Shut-In and Prison Ministries, ministering to those in need through the C.A.R.E. (Christian Assistance Relief Endeavor), H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Prosper Emotionally), Can-Cer-Vive (Cancer Support) and Prayer Ministries and encouraging the saints through the Couples In Christ (Marriage Ministry), Joshua Generation (Young Adult Ministry) and Singles Ministry. Pastor Jones’ unique foresight of oneness combined the men and women auxiliaries into one unified purpose of service, focusing on work and witnessing. The Master’s Men and the Women of Work, Worship and Witness (W.O.W.) ministries were organized.
