What’s Going On?
Ayana K. Young
Ayana is a Christian wife and mother of seven. While she has a love for the law, her first love is Christ. Because of her love for Christ, she feels compelled to help others as she is instructed to by God. She believes that knowledge and wisdom are powerful tools, so she is passionate about passing on that knowledge and wisdom to all whom she comes into contact with.
Ayana graduated from San Francisco State where she received her B.A. in Liberal Studies. While at San Francisco State, Ayana also studied to be a Broadcast Meteorologist but while working as an on-call weather producer at KPIX, she realized the hours were not conducive to a mother with small children. Two years later she decided to attend Law School at John F. Kennedy School of Law and has been practicing law since 2008.
Ayana feels that it is her responsibility by God to continue to encourage others to remember how good God is and to show others how sweet life can be when you put God first. "Life can be difficult for anyone, I am all too familiar with its difficulty. But with God and each other (children of God) we can have wonderful, joyful and peaceful lives. Love y'all."

Spirit of Truth Church Worldwide
Pastors Joel and AnnaLisa Jones
Husband and wife for over thirty years and parents to two wonderful children, Pastors Joel and AnnaLisa Jones are Psalmists for the Lord. They have an intimate, ongoing relationship with the Lord and He has called them to be His mouthpieces. They are anointed with the Holy Spirit of God, and are here to proclaim, through song and testimony, the word of the Lord. For God is coming and He wants none to perish.
We are all in a war…a spiritual war that is. Lives are being lost daily. Casualties are mounting because man continues to choose to live life his way, instead of God’s way. As a result, we play into Satan’s hand, the unseen enemy. We become ducks in a pond, ripe for our ravenous foe and his demons. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. We are helpless and doomed to die in our sin unless we turn to Jesus. Only by His grace can we be saved.

St. John Missionary Baptist Church
Dr. Kevin B. Hall
At the historic St. John Missionary Baptist Church of Richmond, our Church Mission
Statement epitomizes the purpose and vision of our church: “St. John exists
as ‘A Kingdom Building Church in the New Millennium’ to Evangelize the
Sinner and to Equip the Saints, who are Edifying and Enjoying one another, in order
to Exalt the Savior.”
Over the 66 years of her existence, St. John has stood the tests of time primarily
due to God’s favor, and secondly because we strive to fulfill God’s
purpose for His church. Only through worship, evangelism, ministry, discipleship
and fellowship can we seek to embrace the unbeliever and encourage the believer.
St. John of Richmond is not a membership-driven church, but a Word-driven, discipleship-driven
church that is focused on Kingdom Building. We invite you to come and become a part
of our fellowship during one of the 7:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. Worship Celebrations!
