Pastor james & Crystal Jones

Pastor James and Crystal Jones grew up in the Frederick, MD area. They both attended and graduated Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, MD. They were in fact high school sweethearts who married and began to build their family together.

They served as Jr. High Youth Pastor's at the ICC Church (Maranatha Church of God) in Frederick, Md.​ Afterwards their journey took them to Westminster to be the Youth Pastor there for 2 years. They spent the next 11 years in Baltimore as the Senior Pastors at the Celebration Church of God.

Arriving back home to Frederick, MD in 2013, Pastor James and Crystal served along side of long time mentors and friends at the leading of the Holy Spirit.

In the summer of 2016, after much prayer, they knew God was leading them to plant a new church in the Frederick area. They spent the next several months in prayer every week with a few other believers. In 2017, The Divergent Church was birthed in prayer, and today we continue to grow by the grace of God, and for the glory of God.​
