Beth Jones has helped shaped my life since I was 12-years-old and her Getting a Grip on the Basics has been a strong foundation for me since then. Her wisdom in leadership has been ground breaking as she's innovative, creative, strong and genuine.

There are many Pastors across the nation that use Beth Jone's "Getting A Grip on the Basics" book to teach their New Believer's Class . The book is loaded with excellent foundational info to help root and ground all Christians.

We've used Beth's Gotting-a-Grip series to help us reach and disciple thousands of Muslims. I've known Beth since the early '90's and she has always been an inspiration as a leader to my wife and I. We moved to Mancheter, UK to pioneer a church in '94 and used her Getting a Grip series as part of our discipleship program from day one. Then when we stared to see dozens of Muslims come to faith, with her generous permission, we traskated the series into Farsi and it has since helped us disciple thousands of former Muslims. We also used the Jone's church and ministry tools as examples and resources for developing our leadership team while padtoring in the UK. Great leader and great blessing to us and much of the ministry success we've had.

Beth's books are a blessing, especially her Breaking Through the Stained-Glass Ceiling. So refreshing to learn the Bible confirms a woman can be called to leadership in ministry while still being a helpmate in her home.

As an empowered and faithful woman of God, Pastor Beth spreads joy and encourages others to dig deep into a relationship with God that stems from simple, straight-forward and basic aspects of living a fully engaged life.

Pastor Beth Jones helped me put all the pieces of my faith together by going back to basics and building a firm foundation for my faith to built on. I am more confident as I stand on Gods word about, giving, health and healing, the Holy Spirit, and most importantly knowing who I am in Christ that gives me boldness as I deal with every day life struggles as a mom, wife, daughter, aunt, sister, friend and witness for Christ. I am so thankful for Pastor Beth and her perseverance to get whosoever is willing back-to-the-basics.

Pastor Beth has been a life changing role model for me over the past 15 years. She has challenged me as a lover of Jesus, a woman in ministry, a wife, a leader and a loving mother. She is dedicated and passionate about sharing the love of Jesus and her joy and zeal for life is contagious! She is anointed to teach and preach The Word of God at a level this world is not familiar with. I can't imagine where I would be without her (and Pastor Jeff's) leadership in my life.

Pastor Beth Jones is not only an anointed minister of the Gospel, but she is also a great speaker, a talented writer, and a brilliant author. Her unique teaching style is down to earth, easy to follow, and simple to understand. On top of that, she's an amazing leader that's fun to be around. I give her a five star rating because she helps people truly "Get it!"

I am incredibly thankful to have Pastor Beth Jones as one of my pastors. She is an incredible mother to our church and an amazing writer. She has a way of explaining concepts in a "basic" way that is very easy to understand. Her books and sermons have directly impacted my everyday life.

Pastor Beth is the real deal... a tremendous communicator, teacher, author and leader. Her influence goes beyond our community, she is a world changer. She empowers and equips through the basics of biblical truth in her books, devos and messages which make for an easy transition to our everyday lives.

While all leaders are influencers, not all can say that they have truly had an influence on a global level. Beth Jones is just that - a global influencer! Over the past decade, she's been a huge personal influence on our family in helping us to get the basics of a victorious Christian life. Likewise, we've seen the impact on thousands of people through the local church that she co-pastors with her husband, Jeff. Not only is she an amazing author, creative leader, and pastor, but she spins those plates along with being wife and mother with a terrific family. Beth Jones sets the bar as leaders go - full of vision, creativity, energy, excellence, wit, wisdom, humility and humor!

Pastor Beth is not only an amazing author and pastor but an all around awesome person! I am so grateful that both her and Pastor Jeff are always themselves and totally real in every setting. I wouldn't imagine have anyone else as my senior pastor and one of my role models.
