Bishop Noel Jones: "I Gave Up My Corvette to Work with My Dad"
Introducing Noel Jones, a Los Angeles Bishop who hails from a very prominent family both in and out of the church. His sister is legendary performer Grace Jones, and his father, Robert Jones, was a very celebrated Bishop. By the time Noel was young, he felt very comfortable at the pulpit and decided to attend Seminary. The decision, however, seemed to conflict with his lifestyle. "Some of my friends said I couldn't go to seminary and open a business -- I had a manhole digging business...I was rich when I was 21...they said 'you can't do that.'" In this video, Bishop Jones talks about giving up his Corvette to go work with his dad, and how he eventually became the preeminent religious figure he is today.
