Pastor Dave Jones is a San Diego native. He graduated from Helix High School in 1971, and as a high school standout in football was offered a full scholarship to play for UCLA in 1972. Before accepting the scholarship, Dave came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. Accordingly, his passion for football was overcome by his new passion to reach people for Jesus Christ. He enrolled at Christian Heritage College, earning a BA in Biblical Studies in 1977, and has been preaching the Gospel ever since.
