Miata Jones was born in Liberia and raised in Northern Virginia. She is the middle child of 3 girls. She attended Spelman College and obtained her degree in International Studies with a concentration in Third World Politics.
After graduation, Miata worked for Alion Science and Technology and as a contractor for The World Bank Group for six and a half years before coming on staff with Grace Covenant Church. Coming on staff was a sort of homecoming in that she has attended Grace for over 10 + years and served for the last 6 years. She loves God, loves to worship, and is passionate about creating unobstructed environments where people [young and older] can meet and be changed by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
