Jason Jones grew up in the Asheville area and joined Maggie Valley’s staff in January 2019. He studied music at Mars Hill University and Arizona State University. He is an accomplished singer, organist, and piano player. He works full time at Mission Health in Asheville. His earliest memory of Maggie Valley was clogging at Ghost Town in the Sky as a child. We are fortunate to have him as our music minister leading the choir and congregation in worship.
Janice Rogers is our church organist. Playing since the age of 10, she has been a church musician her entire career. She plays the piano and organ and sings. Born in Haywood County, she returned in 2008 to live here permanently. Janice plays the organ every Sunday at the 11 o’clock service.
Rev. Shirley brings decades of church experience to MVUMC and will serve part-time as our new Assistant Pastor. Rev. Shirley will be responsible for working alongside Pastor Cole in general pastoral duties. He will serve in Sunday morning worship and help with the organization of the church as well. Mike will serve as the “pastor in charge” while Pastor Cole is out on Paternity Leave this summer. We are incredibly grateful for Mike and look forward to what God will do in and through he and Sue.
