It is believed he came to California in 1965 or 1967 where he first resided in Ukiah, California. He later established a church on Geary Street in 1970, and then another church in 1971 at Hoover and Alvarado Streets in Los Angeles, California.

The only known arrest for Jones is by the Los Angeles Police Department on December 13, 1973, for indecent exposure. Jones attempted to have this record sealed and according to [deleted name] there is no record of this arrest at the current time with the Los Angeles Police Department as the records have apparently been expunged.
