I am a 29-year old Ewing/Trenton native who loves music and helping families become financially literate. People are often surprised to find out that I love to travel to many different places each year. I am excited about the Zoe Project because it gives me the opportunity to share personal values and learn new Christian values through other congregations’ ministries.
I am a vibrant and tenacious elementary teacher who is resilient through life’s journey as a black woman. People are often surprised to find out that I like to play video games. I’m excited to participate in the Zoe Project because I look forward to seeing everyone grow over the next few years.
Monique Jones is a mother, sister, daughter, teacher, minister, counselor, and advocate for black youth and families, seeking to incorporate the love of God into building self-empowered, self-loved, sustainable communities. One surprising thing about me is that I have skydived in the plains of Argentina.
I am excited about the Zoe Project because I believe the future of the church lies in the hands of our young adults and it is extremely important that this demographic not only feels attached to the church, but is able to recognize that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is still as relevant today for them as it was for their parents and those that came before them. I look forward to being part of a project that will challenge limits and work to help congregations expand their understanding of church to match the expansiveness of God.
