Facebook exec Nona Jones: God gave me the job of a lifetime

February 14, 2020

When God told Nona Jones to quit her job, she was shocked. But minutes after she handed in her notice, Facebook called. They were offering her the chance to become the company’s head of global faith partnerships. In this in-depth interview with Premier Christianity’s Sam Hailes, Nona explains what the role involves and how she’s helping churches get the most out of social media. She also opens up about the trauma and abuse she suffered as a child, how she was able to forgive and move on, and why perfectionism and untamed ambition can be so dangerous. Nona, who is on first names terms with Mark Zuckerberg, also gives her views on parents allowing children to have their own smartphone at a young age, and responds to accusations that Facebook has been limiting freedom of speech on its platform.
