HE WALKS THE TALK – Minister David Jones visits residents at the Schrader Acres Assisted Living Center, a ministry of the Schrader Lane Church of Christ in Nashville, Tenn.

NASHVILLE, TENN. – When the Schrader Lane Church of Christ moved to its current location in 1968, members occasionally had to chase cows and hogs off the property, minister David Jones recalls.

Forty-four years later, the 15-acre campus is home to a licensed child-care center, a 21-apartment senior center and an assisted-living facility.

Jones preaches to nearly a thousand people every Sunday. The church tutors children, sponsors leadership training and academic enrichment programs and supports missions in Africa.

Jones recently celebrated five decades of ministry for the church, which met on Jefferson Street before moving to Schrader Lane, north of downtown Nashville.
