In 1961, Supt. Jones founded the Macedonia Church of God in Christ in an apartment.
From the apartment, he purchased a little house at 3015 Louisa Street in the lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. From the beginning,
"Louisa Street" was a blessed spot of ground. As Supt. Jones went out preaching on the
street corners and witnessing in the neighborhood, the church known as the Little House overfilled and a larger church was built in 1965,
and an even larger one in 1980.

Macedonia Church of God in Christ was totally demolished in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After realizing that God was not finished
with him yet, and through the encouragement of his sons and daughters in the gospel, the 76-year-old Supt. Jones took courage and moved in
faith to recover his members that remained and moved forward. Until his house was repaired in
2007, he traveled from Houston, Texas twice a month to meet with Macedonia Members at the rented church on the Westbank.
Macedonia is now in the process of "rebuilding" and even under a tent, it is still a "blessed spot" with highly anointed services as the
little man with the big hands, continues to allow God to use him and takes no credit, for it is not about him-but the Christ that lives within
