Christopher Jones is the Harlem Program Manager at Services & Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders (SAGE). Located in the historic Theresa Hotel, SAGE Harlem was established in 2004 to strengthen SAGE’s responsiveness to communities of color by ensuring that GLBT elders in Harlem, East Harlem and the Bronx can benefit from culturally and linguistically appropriate services.

Before joining SAGE, Christopher has divided years between chaplaincy, journalism, and higher education. He has written for several noted media outlets including The Associated Press, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Newsday (Long Island), The Tennessean, Gospel Today Magazine, the Feminist Wire, and the Body.com.

In 2011, Christopher founded Griot Works Pastoral Services, which offers spiritual direction and pastoral care to marginalized communities and niched populations. Since then, he has facilitated groups and conducted workshops for various organizations including Gay Men of African Descent (GMAD) in New York, Public Education Foundation in Tennessee, Sadie Nash Leadership Project in New Jersey, and Union Theological Seminary in New York. He also is a member of the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy and the Society of Pastoral Theology.

Christopher has a strong passion for education and public service. In light of his commitments, he has obtained degrees from Middle Tennessee State University (B.S. – Journalism), The Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta (M.Div. – Psychology of Religion and Pastoral Care) and Union Theological Seminary (M.A. – Psychiatry and Religion).
