Jan Jones

Student Ministry Assistant

Family: I am married to Jeff Jones (campus minister at U of M). We have 4 teenagers: Emily (29), Caleb (18), Ellie (16), Ensley (13) that keep us running and take all our money.

Life: When school is in session, you will find me subbing at Appling MIddle School and attending Bartlett High School football games, soccer games, and choir concerts as well as Appling MIddle School volleyball games, football games, basketball games and choir concerts. I am grateful that subbing in schools and attending school events has given me the opportunity to meet students and their familes with the purpose of sharing life and my Jesus with them.

Education: I graduated from Union University (96) with a BS in Elementary Education (K-8)

Favorites: Spending time with Jeff and the kiddos, exploring Memphis, trying new restaurants, taking pics, hosting college kids and students in our home, volunteering at Appling Middle and Bartlett High Schools, traveling

Reading: I typically read about 1 or 2 books a year...when on vacation. But I often pick up my kids' books lying around the house and read a bit of them before having to return them to the library!
