Praise Assembly Church Ministries (PACM) celebrated its 26th church anniversary with gospel recording artist Dominique Jones of Forever Jones gospel group during worship service on Sunday, Nov. 12.

Jones’ blend of contemporary, gospel and hymns kept the nearly standing-room only audience engaged and on their feet for most of the celebration.

“We were truly blessed to have Dominique lead us in worship for our 26th anniversary celebration,” said Dr. Johnny L. York, senior pastor and founder of Praise Assembly Church Ministries. “She’s a talented artist with a heart for worshiping God. We certainly felt His presence through the sincerity of her songs.”

Jones, who goes by Doe Jones, is a music artist from Shreveport, Louisiana. She serves the worship department at Shreveport Community Church, and is a member of the Grammy nominated group Forever Jones, which is comprised of herself along with her parents and four brothers and sisters.

The music and dance ministries of Praise Assembly kicked off the event with selections by artists like Anthony Brown and Tasha Cobb Leonard to an audience of over 500 people. Several first-time guests also attended the anniversary celebration that was culminated with cupcakes for the attendees.

“We are very excited that so many people came out to celebrate and worship with us today,” said Danyelle Woodard, PACM’s marketing and communications ministry leader. “Praise Assembly is a dynamic, growing church centered around God. Today everyone was able to celebrate where we have been and see where we are headed.”

Praise Assembly Christian Ministries was founded by Dr. York on Nov. 5, 1991. The ministries’ mission is to save the lost, provide a church for those without a church home, and present the Gospel in a practical way so that all will come to know Jesus.

Praise Assembly, 3254 Kernersville Road in Winston-Salem, holds worship services at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays with Bible study at noon and 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. For more information about Praise Assembly, visit
