About the Team

We have been transformed by Christ and given the shared vision of bringing REAL LIFE in CHRIST to Ascension Parish and beyond.

Together, we serve the church by equipping every member to take up their place in the body of Christ and use their unique gifts for His glory.

Lead Pastor

Kirk Jones

Kirk was raised in Ruston, LA. He married Wendy in 1998 and they have 3 wonderful children: Daniel, Melanie & Kara. He graduated from Louisiana College & later earned his Master’s Degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

In 2001, he moved to Prairieville to start a church in Ascension Parish that would bring real life and hope through Christ Jesus. His vision was to start a church that would meet practical needs of the people and to let them know that Jesus is the world’s greatest hope.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, hunting & sports.
