Reflections of Life

You saw my glory, but you haven’t heard my story

 “My Faith Walk With God”

Love is being born into a family of love.

Apostle Dr. Robert Lee Jones, the son of the late Henry and Mary Jones, was born in Alabama. His mother taught him the ways of the Lord at an early age. She spoke positive words over her family situations. When the meal barrel was low, Dr. Jones shared with us that she would say, “Everything is gonna be alright.”  

Love is finding a soul mate that has qualities when combined with yours provides unconditional support, growth and precious development.

Dr. Jones met and married Mary Lee Austin in 1964 and was married 40 years. To this union was born three beautiful children, Toris, Tawanna and Israel. This union was also blessed with seven grandchildren and one great-grand.

After the death of Dr. Mary Austin Jones (Founder of We’re For Jesus House of Prayer), Dr. Robert Jones married “Ms. C.” (Cornelia Bryant ) in 2006. Ms. C. has a daughter and two grandchildren.

Love is preparing and knowing that you are destined for greatness.

After leaving Alabama and serving in the United States Army, Dr. Jones furthered his education at Florida Junior College of Jacksonville and graduated with an Associate in Arts degree in 1975. After completing the police officers academy at FJC, he was employed by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office as a police officer (“Treetop Jones”) and served as a Bailiff three years in court room #7, of the Duval County Courthouse. He retired after many years of dedicated service.  

Love is knowing that “Only what you do for Christ will last.”

In 1952, Dr. Jones accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of his life and became a born-again, Holy Ghost-filled believer. He joined New Palmer Grove Baptist Church where he served as a deacon. He also attended Paxon Revival Center, under the leadership of the late Rev. Jimmie Dobbs.

In January 1977, Dr. Mary A. Jones began a prayer service in their home on Chivalry Drive in Jacksonville, FL. In 1980, they established the “We’re For Jesus House of Prayer.

God revealed Himself through a dream mandating the call of God upon his life. In the dream he heard—“Pour water on the dry bone”. He surrendered to the Lord and was ordained an Elder at We’re for Jesus House of Prayer in 1980. His first sermon and last sermon on May 6, 2012 referenced Ezekiel 37:1-10.

Ezekiel 37

New King James Version (NKJV)  


37 The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. 2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. 3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”

4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”’”

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.

9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

He was affectionately known as “Hurricane Jones.” The name “Hurricane Jones” was coined by his powerful anointing and preaching style that destroyed yokes in the lives of God’s people.


In 1988, Dr. Robert Jones received and Honorary Doctorate of Sacred Scriptures from United Christian College, Inc. New York, New York.


In 2005, Dr. Robert L. Jones took on the helm of leadership of We’re For Jesus Ministry (Senior Pastor) and Pastor of the Westside Church ( Lenox Avenue).

God encapsulated Dr. Jones with His love, Wisdom, Knowledge and understanding.


In 2006, Dr. Jones was ordained an Apostle by Dr. David Rosier, the Pastor of Fellowship Church of Praise, Panama City, Florida.



Love is the reassurance that someone who understands you will be there at the end of the day.

The end of the day came for Apostle Dr. Robert L. Jones on May 18, 2012, and Jesus who promised to be with him to the end was waiting to carry him to his final resting place. 



Life is but a stopping place,

a pause in what's to be,

A resting place along the road,

to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys, 

different paths along the way,

We all were meant to learn some things,

but never meant to stay...

Our destination is a place,

far greater than we know.

For some the journey's quicker,

for some the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends,

we'll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace,

together with the Lord.
