As Pastor of Brook Ho ll.c» Baptist Cbrch and Foun:ler of Br cok Hollow Christian Schools, it is my privilege to tell you something about myself and the work of the Lord here. I 1 was saved npril 18, 1960 under the ministry of Dr. Bob ~eyes, and Soon after, the Lord called me to preach His Word. In 1966 the first service of the Brook Hollow Baptist Church was held in the DeSoto High School with 65 po op Ie in attendance. ' Since the incept',OO of the church, God has. blessed ~hunda~tly. In ten years, we have grown in atcendance from 65 to a record 2300 last vctober. Every year serves to take us to greater heights for the Lord.' ,This year c ou ld be the grea,test height of all because Jesus could come and take us all the way to Heaven. With the addition of tb~ "ph RTnde this fall, our school now offers 4 yAn~ Kindergarten through high school and a 3 year Bible Institute. We are looking forward to our first graduating class in 1978. Or. Lee Roberson will be the speaker for our first commencement exercises. 1 pr~ise the Lord for the hundreds of young people who have surrendered to full time service. Many are serving the Lord all over the world. It is a blessed honor to be able to serve the Lord by serving the people here at Brook Hollow. Our main goal in the church and in the school is to see souls saved and to glorify our ~avior.

Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my Shepherd.


This ).isone of the most fami Hsr statemeftts'in all the Bible. 1 often think of this quotp-tion in two parts. Yart one - The ~~~ !!: God has -always been God and He will fo~ever be the seme. There js no purpose f or a ny t h Lng if ~od does not live. The Bible says th,H it is a tool that says in His heart "there 1s no God". Part two - .k!x .§hepherd: God' not only is, but He ha~ a personal rE'J.,'-,i o"o.hil',d. h .!!.le_., n.. is my "hq,I,<.,'d. He loves me, i.a conc,"1'"cd about my life, protects DIe and is preparing a place in I""l\'enfor me. \~e do' not de serva to have this special place with God. but He is our shepherd because He wants it that way. 'Ihat a wonderful Savior" Sincerely Yours, Hr. Jones
