JSCC POINT PLEASANT BEACH
In December 2006, Jersey Shore Calvary Chapel began as a group of eight people crowded into Pastor John and his wife Christina’s living room in a small cape cod in Point Pleasant Beach. Within a month and a half, they outgrew the space and had to move to a small dance school on Arnold Avenue. Just a few months later, with 50 people attending service each week, the church had to find a new home again. Point Pleasant's Memorial Middle School served as a temporary space for a time, as did Antrim Elementary.
But God had bigger plans for the expanding church. In 2013, a series of conversations led Pastor John to the First Baptist Church on McLean Avenue. First Baptist had a beautiful building but a declining congregation. JSCC had an abundance of people but little space. By June, First Baptist had graciously agreed that this historic 125-year old church should be Jersey Shore Calvary Chapel's new home.
JSCC BERKELEY TOWNSHIP
In 2019, Pastor John was asked to provide executive support for the CC Berkeley church family. Pastor Tom Jencsik from Point Pleasant Beach had already been praying about planting a church in the area. When the opportunity arose to support the Berkeley location Pastor Tom transitioned into the role and is now the Pastor of the JSCC Berkeley Township.
