Tara Greene Jones

Class of 2002
Major: Art
Missionary, International Mission Board

When Tara Greene Jones went on a University Missions trip to Japan as a student, she didn't expect to return home with a lifetime calling.

Following her graduation with a degree in art from UMobile, Jones returned to Japan for a two-year term, where she worked as a graphic designer and missionary. Today, Jones, husband Jared, and their two daughters are in Japan as career missionaries with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Not only did Jones discover her calling through her time at the university, but the education and discipleship she received prepared her spiritually for full-time mission work. Today, she uses the practical skills and spiritual depth she gained at UMobile to disciple new Japanese believers.

Because her life was changed at UMobile, Jones is changing lives today.
