My name is Rick Jones. I have served as a full-time minister for 26 years with churches in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, & Mississippi. I graduated from Alabama Christian College in 1976. More recently, I became bi-vocational in 2002, now serving small churches that can’t afford a full-time minister. I am in my second ministry since 2002 having served the Pickwick Church of Christ in Pickwick, Tn. until the church was capable to hire a full time man. Presently, I am in my third year with the Burnsville Church of Christ, in Burnsville, Ms.
To support my family, I own a church furnishings company. We are dealers for 50 different manufacturers. We provide pews, steeples, pew chairs, pulpits, communion tables, baptistries, theater style seating, carpet, church lighting and stain glass. We also provide furnishings for offices, classrooms, nursery, fellowship hall, multi-purpose buildings and playgrounds. We serve as a “single-source supplier” for churches in a building program or remodeling project. We are able to “bundle” our pricing together to offer our churches greater savings than purchasing these items individually from many different sources. For exposure, I have a booth each year at Freed-Hardeman University Lectures, Polishing the Pulpit Conference and this year at the Lads to Leaders Convention in Nashville.
The purpose of my writing is twofold: first, to let churches know about our company when building or remodeling. We are available to do a presentation, show samples and provide proposals with no obligation to the church. Our primary aim is to save the church money and take the frustration out of the selection process. Secondly, there may be other ministers needing additional income for support. Therefore, I would like to offer this opportunity to other ministers to work on a part-time basis.
Through the years, we have provided furnishings for many of our sister congregations. Completed job references and personal references are available upon request.
