In 1980 Todd was called to become a full-time member of our pastoral staff, was ordained a Minister of the Word and Sacrament in our sanctuary, and from 1980 to 1984 Todd served as an Associate Pastor for Youth and Education. Todd’s ministry is remembered with with gratitude and love!

The congregation has 4,300 members, with mission giving in 2017 that makes it the most generous supporter of Presbyterian mission in the denomination.

Todd is married to Connie King Jones, and they have four children and six grandchildren. Josh Jones, age 40, recently elected an Elder in First Presbyterian Church in Spartanburg, completed kindergarten at Oak Street School in Basking Ridge. Sarah, 37, was born in the summer of 1981, to the great celebration of the entire Basking Ridge congregation!
