Robert Reynolds “Bob” Jones was born 10/30/1883 at Shipperville, AL.  He was converted at 11, appointed Sunday school superintendent at 12 and ordained at 15 by the Methodists.  Bob, a fundamentalist Methodist, was a good speaker, fast thinker, and became a good debater. 

His ministry took him to every state in the Union and to thirty other countries.  In 1926 he founded Bob Jones College (now BJU) originally in Florida, but after two moves it settled in Greenville, South Carolina.  He died in 1968.

Jones Quotes:

The acid test of our love for God is obedience to His Word.

Trust God as if it all depends upon Him, and work as if it all depends upon you.
