Our Pastor: Bishop Noel Jones

Noel Jones (born January 31, 1950) is a Jamaican-American minister and a Pentecostal bishop. He is the senior pastor of the City of Refuge Church in Gardena, California, which has about 17,000 members, and was formerly the Greater Bethany Community Church.

Jones received the call to ministry at the age of 19. He attended St. Jago High School and went on to attain a Bachelor of Science in Theology degree from Aenon Bible College. He would later receive an honorary doctoral degree from the International Circle of Faith College (Now, Life College and Seminary) [1]. At the age of 26, he accepted his first pastorate at Bethel Temple of Longview in Longview, Texas.
