Rev. Timothy A. Jones

Rev. Jones is a 2004 graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary.  He was ordained and installed as pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Churches of Bennett and Stanwood, Iowa and was later called to serve at Trinity Lutheran Church of Jefferson, Iowa.  In April 2017 he was installed as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church – LCMS and has been privileged to serve here ever since. 

In June of 2018 Pastor Jones was diagnosed with stage 3C cancer, which was successfully treated.  In January of 2021, routine tests showed that the cancer had return, and was now stage 4.  Since February of 2021, Pastor Jones has been on medical leave, which has become permanent disability.  As a result, Pastor Jones' service at Zion will be extremely limited, primarily as a mentor to Pastor Thomas.

Pastor Jones joyfully entered into the estate of Holy Matrimony when he was married to Christine in June 1993.  Together they have been blessed with four children – Karl, Joanna, Elijah, and Benjamin (died March 2012).
