Pastor Ray Jones came to Ridgecrest Baptist Church in February 2001. Prior to his call to Ridgecrest, he headed the Personal Evangelism Division for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention. While there, Ray and his team were involved in the development of a national evangelism strategy entitled "THE NET" which is currently being used in more than 6,000 churches nationwide. Before leaving NAMB, he served as pastor of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, FL for three years. During that time attendance grew from 150 to a membership of more than 1100. He attended Samford University in Birmingham and is a graduate of Dallas Baptist University. He also did graduate work at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Ray is originally from Birmingham, AL. God is using him in incredible ways as he shepherds and leads the family here at Ridgecrest.
