Sister Vondra Haith Jones is the spouse of the late Pastor Terry B. Jones, her high school sweetheart, to whom she was happily married for 48 years. From this blessed union, they have two daughters, Dana Jones-Newland and Deidre Jones Laughinghouse, and two (2) precious grandsons, Evan Newland and Emory Laughinghouse.
Sister Jones never meets a stranger, and never passes up the opportunity to encourage others as they strive to make it through this complex journey called life. She is known to many as “Mama” because of her constant attention to the little things that matter to most people ~ feeling valued and needed ~ and being recognized for their contributions to the cause of Christ, regardless of the size of the effort.
You will always see a smile on her face, even when burdened with the cares of this world; when grieving the loss of her husband; or when facing adversity. She attributes her tremendous strength to her deep, unwavering faith in and her personal relationship with Christ. She also attributes her strength to the strong support of her husband and friend, the late Pastor Jones.
The Jones family currently ministers at the Bethsada Baptist Church in Mebane, where Pastor Jones served as Senior Minister for six (6) years, until his untimely passing in July 2015. Losing her soulmate and forever love has been a difficult and heartbreaking journey for Lady Jones; however, she is determined to continue on and fulfill the destiny that God has for her. One of her favorite Scriptures aptly describes her confident and positive attitude toward life, and comes from Philippians.
