Derick L. Jones

Pastor Derick L. Jones is the founding Pastor of Free Life Temple Christian Center established in June 2005 in Pontiac, MI. He was ordained an Elder in the church with 100% test scores. Like David, he is a man after God's own heart. His desire and determination to see the lives of people changed and made better by the truth of God's Word is what drives him to preach in a powerful but simplistic way.

Under the leadership of Bishop J. Drew Sheard, Jurisdictional Prelate of Michigan North Central Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction and General Board Member of the Church of God in Christ, Pastor Jones was appointed Superintendant of the Kingdom Life District in March of 2013.

They are the proud parents of three son's, one daughter and one wonderful daughter in love, Derick Jr., Ricky Lawrence (Kamiel),Brandon and Amber. Two grandsons, Kamrick Lawrence Jones and Jakob Jovan Jones.

Pastor Jones is committed to bringing people to Jesus Christ developing them in Christ-like maturity; equipping them for their ministry in the church and lifes mission in order to magnify God's name.
