Bishop Palmer has invited Nona Jones, a globally acclaimed thought leader on leveraging technology for ministry to lead his first Leadership Clinic on March 4 from 10 a.m. to noon. Leadership Clinics are live, online opportunities to give you access to leadership insights from local, national, and global leaders.
Jones has been leading a movement and sounding the alarm for years to make digital discipleship a central part of every church’s ministry approach. Author of From Social Media to Social Ministry, she will share her digital discipleship principles and provides practical instruction for how to do it no matter how big or small a local church may be.
After graduating from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s in communications and Master of Business Administration, Nona experienced meteoric success in her career. She was appointed to her first executive role at only 23-years-old with a Fortune 100 company, giving her exposure at an early age to business strategy. She was then offered an executive role in the public sector, leading the public affairs and regulatory strategy of a multi-service, municipal utility with revenues in excess of $500 million. In this role she was awarded the American Public Power Association’s Robert F. Roundtree Rising Star Award as national peer recognition of her leadership while under the age of 35.
She has provided leadership on Federal and State legislative advocacy, resource development, brand strategy and program expansion. Currently, Nona joined Facebook and uses her business acumen and ministry leadership to build its global faith-based partnerships strategy.
