FOR ME, HIS BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IS HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE DR BOBBY JONES GOSPEL SHOW. IT TAKES WISDOM, TO MAKE DIFFICULT CHOICES - AND THAT IS WHAT HE IS…. A MAN OF WISDOM. After fulfilling God’s commission, Dr. Jones HAS stepped away from the BET Sunday Morning Gospel platform.
NOT ONLY DID HE RETIRE, HE PLANNED HIS EXIT. HIS FINAL TAPED SHOWS INCLUDE SPECIAL GUEST LIKE KIRK FRANKLIN, VICKIE WINANS, LEANDRIA JOHNSON, AND A LONG LIST OF GOSPEL SUPERSTARS. WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT DR JONES IS THAT HE NEVER FORGOT ABOUT THE PROCESS. THE PROCESS THAT MUST BE ENDURED BEFORE SUCCESS. HE CONSISTENTLY ELEVATES NEW, UN HEARD OF TALENT BY SHOWCASING THE BEST.
I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT THIS TRAILBLAZER. WHAT AN HONOR THIS IS.
