Thanksgiving week is one I always love. I enjoy having a holiday that reminds me to slow down and remember the many blessings I have been given. Gratitude is so easily lost in the busy-ness of life. Will you pause with me this week and reflect? I’d love to hear some of the things you are grateful for this week. Here are a few of mine…

  • For family and friends, both near and far.
  • For all the years I had with my mom, who passed away in August.
  • That God has provided so faithfully for Where Grace Abounds over these 33 years!
  • For community, specifically the one I have found at WGA.
  • That God loves each of us, no matter what we’ve done or where we are coming from.

As you prepare for your holiday, would you remember a few prayer requests for WGA and those in our midst?

  • That faith communities would rise up and become family for those who need one.
  • For those struggling with loneliness and despair, that God would meet them there and give them the awareness of His presence in the lives.
  • That those dealing with temptation towards addiction will find true connection, rather than the false.

How can we pray for you? What are you thankful for?

Roger Jones

Executive Director

In the spring of 1995, the conflict Roger felt between his faith and his sexuality, as well as an addiction to pornography, led him to WGA. His personal journey has provided him unique insights into sexuality and the pain of adversity, which he shares through his testimony, facilitation of small groups, writing and public speaking. Roger began working with WGA in October of 1996 as the Assistant office Manager. Since that time, he has worn many hats and served in several different positions, including Assistant Program Director and Operations Director. In April of 2007, Roger assumed the position of Executive Director. Roger attended West Texas A&M University, where he studied Music Business. Much of his training has been “on the job,” where he was mentored by the ministry’s Founder, Mary Heathman, and the Program Director, Scott Kingry. He holds a BA from West Texas A&M University. Roger, his wife Jill, and their daughter Julia and son William, attend Celebration Community Church where Jill serves as Associate Pastor.
