My name is Jody Jones and my wife Monica and I would like to welcome you to our church family.  In April 2013, the Lord called us to Malakoff to live and love the people of this community, and it has been such a blessing.  We would like to welcome you to be part of our family and our vision as we seek to be all things to all people through the love of Christ.  It is an exciting time to be a part of such an experienced church with a missional heart and a staff that is seeking to minister to all ages and people groups right here where God has planted us.  Come and see what God is doing, we would love to have the opportunity to meet you!
