Background:
As an ordained minister, Chris Jones, Democratic nominee for governor of Arkansas, understands how important faith communities throughout the state are to unlocking his Promise of Arkansas. Leaders from a variety of faiths will come together to discuss lifting up Arkansas together.

“I abide by the second most important commandment in the Bible that I follow: Love your neighbor as yourself,” said Jones. “I believe that you should stand on your faith and live out your faith. I also believe that you can stand in your faith and live out your faith without turning the state into a church.”

Chris Jones is here to prove that politics and governance do not have to be divisive and destructive, and that we solve our problems by bringing people together. The Promise of Arkansas is rooted in the Arkansan values of Faith, Hope & Hard Work – the Faith that together we can address our challenge, the Hope that unified we make space for all Arkansans to live out our unique potential, and the Hard Work of change in our souls and in our lives. The promise begins by spreading “PB&J” across the state—expanding quality education to all families starting Preschool, safe and reliable infrastructure starting with affordable Broadband, and economic development focused on creating high wage Jobs.

About Chris Jones

Dr. Chris Jones, the 2022 Democratic nominee for Governor of Arkansas, is a physicist, minister, educator, non-profit executive leader, father and husband. Chris, a Pine Bluff, Arkansas native, is a son of two preachers and was raised with a strong sense of faith. He attended Morehouse College on a NASA Scholarship for physics and math, then went on to study at MIT becoming a nuclear engineer and earning a Ph.D. in urban planning. After becoming ordained as a minister, Chris returned home to Arkansas and led the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub. Through this work, he has seen firsthand how disparities within Arkansas have gotten worse, not better. He believes there is much room for growth, including improving public education opportunities in every community, strengthening infrastructure from roads to broadband access, protecting and securing our right to vote, and bridging the rural and urban divide. Chris has faith in Arkansas’s potential, and he is running for governor to ensure every person in Arkansas has an opportunity to succeed. Chris is the proud husband to Dr. Jerrilyn Jones, an emergency medicine physician and U.S. Air Force combat veteran who served in Afghanistan. Together, they are proud parents to three daughters.
