Vision and Mission

The Call Church was planted under Calvary Chapel in Amador County California in 1984. The mission from the beginning has been to reach out to all people, from all generations, with the message of the Gospel, and to teach the word of God.
The church vision is to grow spiritually and to reach out to the_noemailmunity and beyond making disciples as_noemailmanded by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20.

About The Call Church

The Call church has a warm and friendly congregation, with weekly Sunday attendance between 100-150 people. The worship services are contemporary. Expository Bible teaching is valued from the pulpit. There is a popular mid week service that brings in a family atmosphere with dinner, followed by a time of fellowship, worship, and Bible study. There are multiple Men's and Woman's Bible Study groups that meet during the week. Youth and children's ministries are in development that are supported by both paid and volunteer staff.
The Call Church has a governing body of seven men and a senior pastor. The senior pastor is the chairman of the board. There are currently four employed staff members. A full time Worship Pastor and three other part-time staff members support a variety of church ministries. In 2015 the church started a thrift store located in Jackson CA, with a goal of using the proceeds to reach out to the youth in our_noemailmunity. The church campus is located in the town of Pine Grove, in close proximity to other historic cities, Jackson and Sutter Creek. It is a small, but growing rural_noemailmunity. Pine Grove is fairly close to the larger metropolitan area of Sacramento (about 1 hour drive). Pine Grove is located in heart of the Gold Country, a popular tourist destination. Amador County has a population of approximately 35,000. The candidate should be someone that also enjoys the outdoors, living in the mountains, with an appreciation of the beauty and recreation this area has to offer.
