High Profile Convert and Popular Speaker Deacon Alex C. Jones Has Died

From April 1975 to December 2000 He was the senior minister of two churches in the city of Detroit: Zion Congregational Church of God in Christ (1975-1982), the second oldest Pentecostal church in Michigan, and Maranatha Christian Church (1982-2000), an Evangelical/Charismatic church.  In his own words, “in March of 1998, while reading the apostolic fathers and subsequent church history in preparation for a Wednesday evening bible study, I discovered the Church to be charismatic/liturgical, hierarchical, and Eucharistic-centered.  In light of that discovery, Donna and I began a two-year journey into the Catholic Church that culminated in fifty-four members of my previous congregation, including fourteen members of my family, entering the Catholic Church.

A popular speaker, he was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Archdiocese of Detroit on October 1, 2005.  He is the author of No Price too High! – a book chronicling his journey into the Church.
