Functioning Families Ministries10:30 – 11:00am
Spirit of Truth Church Worldwide
Pastors Joel and AnnaLisa Jones

Husband and wife for over thirty years and parents to two wonderful children, Pastors Joel and AnnaLisa Jones are Psalmists for the Lord. They have an intimate, ongoing relationship with the Lord and He has called them to be His mouthpieces. They are anointed with the Holy Spirit of God, and are here to proclaim, through song and testimony, the word of the Lord. For God is coming and He wants none to perish.

We are all in a war…a spiritual war that is. Lives are being lost daily. Casualties are mounting because man continues to choose to live life his way, instead of God’s way. As a result, we play into Satan’s hand, the unseen enemy. We become ducks in a pond, ripe for our ravenous foe and his demons. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. We are helpless and doomed to die in our sin unless we turn to Jesus. Only by His grace can we be saved.

Dr. Kevin B. Hall3:00 – 4:00pm
St. John Missionary Baptist Church
Dr. Kevin B. Hall

Pastor Kevin B. Hall is God’s visionary for the historical St. John Missionary Baptist Church. Known as, "A Kingdom Building Church In Two Communities” (St. Matthew 28:18-20). St. John is one of the largest churches in Richmond, California. Serving as the Spiritual Leader since 1994, Pastor Hall heeded the guidance of the Holy Spirit to take St. John to higher heights by leading the church in their spiritual walk with Christ Jesus. Although the congregation has grown tremendously over the past 22 years, Pastor Hall’s focus is not "membership driven,” but "discipleship driven.” His passion for the lost souls of this world compelled him to preach every Sunday for three consecutive years 2006–2008. Week after week, his uncompromisingly bold preaching and teaching of God’s Word transformed and converted the hearts of many to choose Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.

Educationally, Pastor Hall earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Philosophy as his major and Sociology as his minor) from San Francisco State University in 1983. He also earned a Bachelor of Theology Degree from Conroe Bible College that same year. In 1987, Pastor Hall earned a Master of Divinity Degree and a Master of Religious Education from the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. On May 25, 1996, Pastor Hall received his Doctor of Ministry Degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, California.

Pastor Hall has achieved many triumphs during his 37 years of dedicated service to the Master. He is an honored member of the National Directory of WHO’S WHO in Executives and Professionals. He has received many Awards and Certificates of Recognition for outstanding church and community leadership from officials in the City of San Francisco, City of Richmond and the State of California.

Pastor Hall is the devoted son of Reverend John L. Hall and the late Mrs. Ola Mae Hall. He is the proud husband of Chrischele, father of two children, Kevin (Shana) and Kavina and grandfather of Kalayah and Kaelyn. Pastor Hall can always be found reciting these words of encouragement, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
