Lauren Jones

Fourth/Fifth Grade


Mrs. Jones knows that without a doubt God has placed a desire for children deep within her heart. She lights up when they are around, enjoys laughing with them, and loves inspiring them!

After graduating from Trevecca Nazarene University, Mrs. Jones started teaching in a multicultural school in Nashville, TN. She loved teaching kids who struggled academically and needed some extra love in their lives.

Mrs. Jones and her husband, Tre, have loved serving God in youth ministry and currently serve as coordinators over the Welcome Area at Elevation Church. Mrs. Jones has a daughter, Kylie, a GCA student, as well as her newest addition, son Elisha. There’s never a dull moment in the Jones home, and they wouldn’t have it any other way!

Why GCA?

When Mrs. Jones moved to Charlotte in 2010, God opened the door for her to teach at Grace. She had no idea how much God would teach and inspire her by being here at GCA. Not just attending chapel with her class, but feeling the presence of God as she walks the halls and teaches in the classroom. When Mrs. Jones’ daughter started attending school here, her joy in her job became complete. Kylie knows that she comes to school to learn about God (her words at 6 years old).

Favorite Bible verse:
Psalm 37:4-5

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.”
