Laney Jones grew up in northwest Georgia and moved to Athens in 2012 to attend the University of Georgia. She graduated with a degree in Communications Studies and a minor in Spanish in 2014. During high school and college, she served in camp ministry at Camp Glisson, a job that allowed her to both enjoy the outdoors and encounter God with young people from around the region. Through the Wesley Foundation at UGA, Laney began serving with the students at our church as a college shepherd. Although she’d visited various churches around Athens, our church finally felt like home to her; she was thrilled to join the staff as our Assistant Director of Student Ministries in 2014. Laney loves working with Josh to disciple teenagers, a job that is “always fun, often challenging, and so rewarding.” Additionally, Laney enjoys being able to eat the leftover food from church events- a privilege cherished by more than a few church staff members.
