Elder / College Missionary
Loftstofan / Ex Deus College Ministry
Elliot A. Jones is married to Hildur Snjólaug Bruun Garðarsdóttir Jones (Icelander). He was born in Portland, Oregon (USA) and grew up in Africa, returning to the States for his teenage years. He came to faith at the age of 14 and immediately began to feel a pull to serve in ministry overseas. He attended the University of Oregon and received a BA in History in 2017. He also served in his church in Eugene as a bible study leader within the college ministry as well as running the set-up and tear-down ministry.
In August of 2018 Elliot moved to Iceland to attend the University studying Medieval History, and has served at Loftstofan Baptistakirkja in a variety of capacities, namely, on the worship team, heading up the college ministry (Ex Deus), a deacon, and finally, in April 2020, he was voted in as an Elder to serve alongside Gunnar Ingi Gunnarsson.
Elliot’s wife, Hildur, came to faith at the age of 23, in the summer of 2018. Today she works as Gunnar´s assistant, serves in the college ministry Ex-Deus and is currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumor.

Ex Deus College Ministry
We exist to know God, to Worship God, and to make disciples.
To that end, Ex Deus holds a weekly Tuesday night fellowship and game night, called Club, and holds various social outreach gatherings throughout the week.
The intent is to create a compelling Christian community on campus that allows for the members of Ex Deus and students on campus to have deep, on-going relationships.
