The Alberta NWT District Mission of “Calling forth PAOC Leaders…” will be accomplished in part through acknowledging and encouraging the various ministry gifts God has placed within the family of Credential Holders in our District. The gift of writing is one of those gifts and a tremendous blessing within the Body of Christ. From time to time we will introduce you to some authors and their books from the PAOC Alberta NWT District family.
In this E-Newsletter, we want to introduce you to Rev. Bob Jones and his book Ornament.
Bob Jones has served as a pastor for 37 years, and currently is the Sr. Pastor at North Pointe Community Church in Edmonton, Alberta where he has been on staff for the last 26 years.He and his wife, Jocelyn, have 2 sons and 4 grandchildren.
Bob has a passion for writing for inspiring people to be real, growing an authentic faith in Jesus, enjoying healthy relationships and discovering their life purpose.
Ornament is about the life of a truly amazing story of a loving, exceptional woman of faith, Kristen Fersovitch. Kristen was 28 and a wife and mother to three sons under the age of five when she was diagnosed with cancer and given less than 24 months to live. From the stage of the Jubilee Auditorium with the Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree singing a duet with an American Idol to the intimacy of one-on-one conversations, Kristen’s faith, hope and joy were like a beautiful ornament – on display for all to see.
Bob Jones shares Kristen’s story from a pastor’s heart. Each of the eleven chapters tells the story of an ornament from the Fersovitch Christmas tree. The story of each ornament illustrates the depths of God’s grace that helped Kristen be her best when life was at its worst. Full-colour pictures of Kristen and family provide a backdrop for her love of Christmas. The final chapter is insight from Kristen’s husband Mike on how the Lord helped him deal with the loss of his wife. Each chapter concludes with devotional questions to help people grow a faith like Kristen’s.
