Calvon Jones’ time at Yale Divinity School, he was honored as a distinguished William Sloane Coffin scholar in recognition for his commitment to social-justice.

He graduated with the highest award, the Henry Hallam Tweedy Prize for Exceptional Promise in Pastoral Leadership. He is a graduate of Morehouse College, Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.
Rev. Jones believes that religion is the spiritual compass that informs our daily lives and should be the force that compels us to fight for those whose voices are not heard. He shares that “Trinity is my home and I have fallen in love with my Trinity-family. I am honored to serve on the team as an Associate Pastor and I do not take this call lightly. I support the vision of our senior pastor and I look forward to seeing what God will do on this side of the Jordan. For it doth not yet appear what we shall be…”
