Not Just Loved, but Lived for a Greater Calling than Himself.
  • Born on October 13, 1960 in Houston, Texas, United States.
  • Passed away on November 19, 1990 in Houston, Texas, United States.

Reverend Paul Jones was the Founder and Pastor of Greater New Grove Missionary Baptist Church located at 7311 E. Mount Houston Rd. in the Northeast area of Houston, Texas.

He is the son of the proud parents, Mr. Jesse James and Mrs. Pauline Jones, Sr.  He was born October 13, 1960. He is a graduate of Sam Houston High School and a student of the historical Bishop College of Dallas, Texas.  Paul is the brother of Ruthie, Jesse, Tyrone, Don and Janet. He has several nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and fans all over the world.

As a child, he would sing with his brothers and youngest sister Janet, leading songs inspiring everyone wherever he traveled.  Pastor Jones was called to the ministry on April 15, 1976, and with faith in his Creator, founded and organized a wonderful church on November 23, 1981 with 9 members and the journey began at several other locations before landing on E. Mount Houston Rd, until God called him home. 

While pastoring at Greater New Grove Baptist Church, he would broadcast services every Sunday on Radio KWWJ, 1360 AM spreading the gospel throughout the city of Houston. Those who knew him always observed him helping people, teaching them the message of Christ, letting them know that they must be saved.  He also encouraged people to get it right with God, that “this thing is REAL”, and that the “Word of God can save you, and keep you if you want to be kept”. While at the e. Mount Houston location, membership grew to over 2,000 people in less than nine years. 

His unique gifts, talents, and abilities earned him the name “God’s Man with a Vision”.  Being such an anointed and powerful preacher and teacher, with a voice and songs to uplift and renew, he was blessed to record his first Live Album with standing room only crowd at Brentwood Baptist Church in Houston, Texas.   The album from the Live Recording made the best seller charts at local radio stations and record stores with the title cut, “I Won’t Complain”.   To this day, “I Won’t Complain”, is yet loved and sung by many all over the world.  He has also recorded songs with other Gospel Artists, and is well known in churches and the music industry abroad.  He is featured on two songs on the Gospel Fellowship Workshop album.  Paul also recorded with the Dallas Fort-Worth Mass Choir accompanied by Rev. Milton Bigham, and with the GMWA 1990 along with V. Michael McKay and Kathy Taylor, both natives of Houston.  He also appeared on the Bobby Jones Television Show in Nashville, Tennessee, and he has recorded with the James Cleveland Gospel Workshop of America in Washington D.C.

He stunned the nation with his single,  “I Won’t Complain” which caused his music ministry to soar to the top with such awards as: “Outstanding Male Vocalist of the Year” in Houston Texas polled by the listening audience presented through KWWJ-Gospel 1360 AM where the Rev. Darrell Martin was General Manager.

Pastor Jones was humble, yet distinguished.  He made a profound impact on his community through his wisdom, character and heartfelt passion for humanity.  His music continues to impact millions and his sermons have opened hearts to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Thank you Pastor Jones for giving your life to ministry and the love of Jesus Christ!


NOTE:

The song, Forever With Me, was written and sung by gospel artist great Yolanda Adams for her close friend, Pastor Paul Jones

Tracy Mattax 2 years ago (edited) He definitely was a man who helped so many and surely he didn't deserve to be killed....He helped everyone regardless of who you were or what you did..... He would often visit my home church ... he always called my mother his "Birthday Buddy" because they shared the same October 13th birthday. He was an awesome man of God and it broke my heart to hear that he was killed. I had just seen him that Saturday and he was gone that Monday.

Shaw Darby 1 year ago MITCHELL ALVAREZ my family members are the Washington/Roys and we knew Paul before he began pastoring. The Washingtons , Roys, Johnsons, and Mitchells were the founding members that helped him in his ministry so I'm family thru Church lol... I remember the last time I saw Him/Paul. He was soooo worried. He seemed as if he sensed that his rest was near. in service one time, he stated that God showed him that he was going to die early. I'm blessed to have had the experience of saying that He was really something special...
