  • History | Jones Chapel Baptist

    History The Jones Chapel Baptist Church was organized in 1896 under the leadership of Reverend S. J. Murph and Reverend Marsh Thompson. The first wooden structure was built shortly after the organization of the church. The original cornerstone was placed in the wooden structure in October 1943. Records indicate that Brother Marshall Jones for whom the church was named donated this property. The records also indicate that the Reverend Marsh Thompson presided over the first called meeting of Jones Chapel. According to records, Reverend Marsh Thompson served as pastor until Reverend Bendy Logan became the first full-time pastor. In addition to the aforementioned pastors, the following ministers also served. They were: Reverend S. Benjamin, Reverend J. Box, Reverend June Mitchell, Reverend H. N. Arell, Reverend Sam Daniels, Reverend W. N. Stevenson, Reverend C. D. Salley, Reverend L. R. Rush, Reverend Ed Smith, Reverend M. C. Curry, Reverend J. D. Brown, Reverend Jack D. Dash, Reverend C. L. Ulmer (1961 - 1965) and Reverend James Jeffcoat, Sr. Reverend J. D. Brown was elected in 1936 and served until 1958. At the onset of Reverend Brown's leadership, our church organizations were limited to ‘one choir’ - the Senior Choir, the Willing Workers' Club, the Missionary Society Club and an Ushers' Board. During his tenure, Reverend Brown was instrumental in the construction of the present building. A cornerstone was placed in the brick structure that was completed in 1952. In the early 1950's during Reverend Brown leadership, the church acquired an additional choir. This was the Junior Choir, which was originally organized by Sister Willie Mae Jones Smalls. The group was reorganized in 1958 and served for many years as of the Jones Chapel Gospel Choir. In the mid to late 1950's, Sister Smalls with the help of Sister Annette Jones Wright, as the musician, organized the first Children's Choir. The group was short-lived but did allow the tots-to-teens to be involved in the worship services. Reverend J. D. Dash was elected in 1959 and served until 1961. He was instrumental in organizing the first youth department at Jones Chapel. While Reverend Dash worked with the young men, his wife, Sister Esther Dash worked with the young women. Together the male and female groups were known as the "Starlight Club." The following deacons and trustees have served during or since the establishment of the church. The deacons were Deacon Ben Griddle, Deacon Mazalon Parker, Deacon Dink Thomas, Deacon Spencer Pauling, Sr., Deacon Matthew Pough, Deacon Shedrick Davis, Deacon Jeff Pauling, Deacon Henry Dykes, Deacon Marion Murph, (Chairman), Deacon Coleman Jones, Sr., Deacon David Murph, and Deacon George D. Jones, Jr. The trustees were Brother Shedrick Thomas, Brother William Jennings, (Chairman) and Brother W. T. Colter. Reverend James Jeffcoat, Sr., was elected in February 1966. His service extended through October 2000. Under the leadership of Reverend James Jeffcoat, the church underwent several remodeling and expansion projects. The following officers were added to our leadership roster: Deacon Robert E. Jones, Brother John C. Glover, Brother Harold K. Hailey, Brother Arthur L. Jones, Brother Harry L. Lewis, Brother Clarence Livingston, Brother T. J. Ross, Brother Charlie Jones, Brother Samuel Jones, Brother Lawson Day, Brother Hurley Johnson, Brother Alvern Murph, Brother Franklin Rice, Brother Nicholas L. Jones, Deacon Elmore Bryant, Deacon Carl G. Johnson, Brother Edward Lewis, and Brother John McNeil. In 1974, the sanctuary was renovated along with the erection of the Education Hall. Serving as deacons during the 1974 renovations were: Deacon George D. Jones, Jr., (Chairman); Deacon Coleman Jones, Sr., Deacon Joseph W. Rice, Jr., Deacon Lealather Mayers, II, Deacon Isaiah Sistrunk, Jr. Serving as trustees during the 1974 renovations were: Brother Willie Jennings, (Chairman); Brother Lealather Mayers, Sr., Brother Charlie Jones, Brother Alvern Riley, Brother Jeremiah Glover, Brother Franklin Jones, Brother Kenneth Hailey, Brother David Jones and Brother Paul Lewis. In 1970, Sister Frances Thomas Sistrunk organized a young adult choir who took on the name of the Junior Choir. The name was later changed from the Junior Choir to the Inspirational Choir. In January 1993, the Inspirational Choir merged with the Senior Choir and functioned as the Senior - Inspirational Choir. Sister Sistrunk was also instrumental in organizing the Sunbeam Choir in the early 1980s. The choir, although no longer functioning, later changed its name to the J & J Choral Ensemble. In 1988, 1995, 1996 and 2000, additional enhancements were made to the church. These enhancements included the expansion of the choir-stand and the Educational Hall. The Educational Hall was enlarged to the present Fellowship Hall, which is now suited to multi-purpose activities. The baptismal pool and the kitchen area were modernized and moved to their present locations, along with the addition of clerical staff offices, meeting and conference rooms. Over the years, Jones Chapel gained the following groups that have functioned and/or are still functioning. They are the Ladies Auxiliary, the Missionary Society, and Pulpit Aide now functioning as The Pastor’s Aide Committee with Sister Pearl McNeil as President. The Gospel Choir, the Senior - Inspirational Choir, the Children's Choir now functioning as the Angelic Choir, the Mass Choir, the Spiritual Voices of Praise Choir and the Male Chorus, which began with Deacon Harry L. Lewis, Sr. President. Brother Curtis Lewis serves as the Male Chorus current President. There is the Deaconess Board with its first president of record as Sister Flossie Murph. Sister Mildred H. Rice is the current Deaconess Board President. The Youth Department; the Brotherhood now functioning as the Progressive Men’s Ministry and of course our Sunday School from the onset of the Jones Chapel Baptist Church. Although many have led the Sunday School Department, Sister Patricia Young is the current Sunday School Superintendent. The New Inspiration Choir formed late 2011 and served only a couple years, is no longer functioning but is still prayerful that the young adult group will rise again. Jones Chapel has grown from worship services twice a month to having worship services every Sunday. On Wednesday before each fifth Sunday, there is a mid-week fellowship with the Mt. Pisgah Union, which is one of our affiliates. We are also affiliated with the Mt. Olive Sunday School Congress of Christian Education, the Mt. Olive Baptist Association and Mt. Olive Corporation.

  • Our Pastor | Jones Chapel Baptist

    Reverend Bryce D. Jamison is a native of Walterboro, South Carolina and the son of Reverend Norman Jamison and the Late Sister Theola Jamison. Now residing in Orangeburg, he and his wife, Renee are the proud parents of two daughters (Marquitis and Patrice) one son-in-law (Joe), two granddaughters (Nadiyah and Marley) and two grandsons (Kori and Liam). ​ Within 60 days of coming to Jones Chapel, Minister Bryce D. Jamison was off, and running, literally. On Saturday, September 15, 2001, he was elected as the pastor of Jones Chapel Baptist Church. Sunday, November 18, 2001, was his Installation Service, which followed his ordination services at the Mt. Olive Baptist Church of Walterboro, South Carolina just a few weeks prior. Since his acceptance of the leadership role, Pastor Jamison has been instrumental in the formation of several new organizations here at Jones Chapel - The Seniors Ministry; the Singles Ministry; the Male Chorus; the revamping of the Ladies Auxiliary, the Missionary Society , the Outreach Ministry and the Young Adult Choir. He transformed the Youth Department and Youth Advisory Board into a formal Youth Ministry, given the fact that he served as the Director of the Youth Ministry of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church. Reverend Jamison has physically involved himself in all church activities and organizations. Every Sunday he reads from Malachi 3, and does more than his fair share to help with fundraisers; however, he never misses an opportunity to teach tithing. ​ ​ Recognizing that the Bible Bowl had a great impact on the youth in Colleton County; which Reverend Jamison was the co-founder of the Colleton #1 Union Bible Bowl, he introduced the concept to the Orangeburg area. His Bible Bowl concept (a Scripture Study program geared and designed to stimulate the interest of the youth in studying the Bible) was a regular part of the Mt. Pisgah Union program outline. Reverend Jamison served as the Moderator of the Mt. Pisgah Union, one of our affiliated organizations. Reverend Jamison was elected in October 2007 to serve as the Vice Moderator and then elected in October 2011 to serve as of the Moderator of Mt. Olive Baptist Association, another of our affiliated organizations. Pastor Jamison enjoys ‘good clean Christian Fun’ but does not squander his calling for winning and bringing souls to and for Christ – from the youngest to the oldest. He has the gift to ‘gab’, a talent he possesses and apparently mastered when he was the Station Manager, Radio Announcer and Sales Manager for WVGB Radio in Beaufort, South Carolina. While not being pushy or making a nuisance of himself, he never misses the opportunity to share ‘The Word”. Pastor Jamison is an advocate of all the ministries here at Jones Chapel but because we are losing our youth in great numbers to the streets, Pastor Jamison puts many hours and great efforts into working with and for our youth. In recent years, the formation of a Health Ministry has been an added benefit to the church and community. Under his prayerful guidance, the Health Ministry was able to obtain a grant that afforded the church the opportunity to build a walking trail. This has been a brief overview of history in the making by Reverend Bryce D. Jamison and his visions. Not as traditional as most histories, but a quick yet brief peek through the window at the reasons we are here celebrating with our pastor. We, also, want to show our gratitude for his years of hard work and for the endless service, he gives. For, it is written that, we are all here for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Whichever role or impact Reverend Jamison has made in your life, rest assured that it was or it is the path that God laid for you and Pastor Jamison. It is his prayer that all of his efforts are within the will of God while always being led by the Holy Spirit.
