Pastor Garry P. Jones has been serving at Rosedale Baptist since January 2003. Before coming to Rosedale, he pastored churches in Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, and Arizona. He and his wife, Sandy, reside in Vineland, N.J. with their adult daughter, Lora. Pastor Garry and Sandy have three grown children as well as five grandchildren.
Pastor Jones first attended the former Practical Bible Training School in Johnson City, New York. He did his post-graduate work through Patriot University in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He has an earned Doctorate in Biblical Philosophy. In addition to having been a Pastor for over 37 years, Pastor Jones has taught, administered, and helped organize five different Christian Day Schools and also founded two local church Bible Institutes. Being a student of the Word and desiring to share his love for rightly dividing the Scriptures, he authored several works including, “The Significance Of The Sign Of Jonah”, “The Blood Of The Bible”, “The Preserved Word Of God”, and most recently, “The Greatest Week In History…The Truth And Traditions Of Easter”.
His wife, Sandy, is the Director of the church's HOPE Tutoring Ministry and is actively involved in the various ministries of the church. Her service includes teaching in the children's ministry, choir, visitation, and playing in the church orchestra. Their daughter, Lora, has been commissioned by the church as a Home Missionary and directs the Backyard Bible Club Ministry.
Since coming to Rosedale, Pastor Jones has continued to share his passion for training people of all ages to grow in their love for the Lord and in their knowledge of the Bible. As a result, the church under his direction has begun several new ministries. Some of which include, Children's Bible Club, Backyard Bible Club, HOPE (Helping our Parents Educate) Home School/Tutoring Ministry and the tuition-free Rosedale Baptist Bible Institute. These new ministries in addition to the existing ministries make Rosedale Baptist Church a place where every member can call home.
In November of 2009 a call was unanimously extended by the church’s membership to Bro. Bob Emery to be our Assistant Pastor. The Emery family has been faithfully and actively involved in the ministry at the church for over 20 years.
Bro. Bob was saved and became a member at Rosedale Baptist in 1986. He and his wife, Dawn, met and were married at the church in 1987. They have two sons, Zack and Alex. Bro. Bob has been continuing his education for the ministry through Rosedale’s Bible Institute Program and is finishing his Master Degrees in Pastoral Ministry and Christian Education through Baptist College of America.
Both Bro. Bob and his wife, Dawn, have been lifelong residents of Hammonton and presently reside on Moss Mill Road. As Assistant Pastor, Bro. Bob’s primary responsibilities include visitation, preaching, teaching and directing the ministry .
