Al Jones: Senior Pastor
A little something about us;
God is so gracious!
He has truly blessed us. The Lord placed us here in the fall of 2004. My family and I are grateful for the opportunity to minister for the Lord in this community. My wife Delphine and I are excited about the move the Lord has in store for this church, and the lives that will be affected by it.
We have two daughters: Brittany and her husband Lance reside in Hawarden, Iowa. They have two children – Hazel and Bennett.
Kayla and her husband Jarrid reside in Litchfield, Minnesota. They have two sons – Jax and Aycen.
Delphine is a Missions major from North Central University. She has been used by God in drama, and has also been miraculously healed by the Lord. Once in a wheel chair, she now walks for the glory of God.
I am a Berean-trained minister who has seen how God can keep one secure in Him no matter what life brings. After the death of my first wife, God placed a special urgency upon me to complete my training, and received an ordination with the Assemblies of God. I am ministering in the very church I spent my whole life in, and God continues to bless my wife and me with a church family that truly cares for us and the ministry here in Cokato.
Isn’t God good?
Bruce Compton: Outreach Pastor
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I want to take a few minutes of your time to let you know something about myself. Some who know me may refer to me as a crazy old biker, but in reality I’m a husband to my beautiful wife Kim, a father of 4 – Sarah, Joshua, Isaac and Savannah. I am also a grandfather of 4 – Lavinia, Addison, Jerusalem, and Raphael. My Lord set me free from drugs and alcohol in 1977 when He sent a man 6000 miles to preach His gospel to me. Since that time my Lord has had me on a journey that ministers to men that are dealing with mny areas of addiction.
My hobbies focus around motorcycles and shooting sports and gun smithing.
At this time I’m bi vocational, which I believe is where God has asked me to be since most men that I minister to will have a job and walk out Christ. My occupation that pays the bills is in the print industry as a R&D Print Development Director and my full time ministry is functioning as the Outreach Pastor for New Life Assembly of God Cokato.
I have worked for the past 6 years within the Teen Challenge program as a mentor and doing chapel on a monthly basis. Also, I’m working with men in the process of aftercare once they have completed a program like Teen Challenge.
