Cameron Jones (2021)
Worship Team Chair

My wife and I showed up at Decatur First hoping to find a place to grow and serve together. Ten years later, we couldn't imagine what life would be like without the deep friendships we've made and the ways we've grown and the impact we've been blessed to be a part of. Having helped lead worship services of various types – traditional, contemporary, children's, youth, campus and camp – for nearly two decades, I'm convinced of their impact and importance for faith formation. I'm also convinced we far too often put worship in a box – the four walls of a church and an hour time slot. Jesus says to love God and love others with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love others as we love ourselves. When we do this, it's worship; we give of ourselves and God is glorified. Worship gatherings can and should spark or rekindle a life of worship – of loving God and loving others in our everyday lives. At Decatur First, there are hundreds of chances to live out our faith in ways that help make our corner of earth more like it is in heaven. Britt and I are in a small group called Kehillah with some other knuckleheads trying to figure out faith. Britt is a dietitian at Emory Decatur Hospital and serves on the church's Engage Team. I work for the North Georgia Conference's camp and retreat ministries focusing on expansion strategy and communications and chair the church's Worship Team. Our two children, Callie (1) and Eli (4), are adorable and think Decatur First needs more french fries. I can be reached at camerondavidjones@gmail.com
