Jeff Birmingham

senior Pastor

Pastor Jeff and Jessica Birmingham have two great passions in life: First, they desire to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and secondly, they are passionate to love their neighbor as themselves. Pastor Jeff and Jessica follow the Biblical definition of neighbor as everyone who crosses their path. Radical obedience to God’s call has led the Birminghams from Colorado to Florida to Dubai, back to Florida and now to Georgia, each step of their journey strengthening their faith and deepening their resolve to honor and glorify God above anything else.
In 2007, Pastor Jeff graduated from Calvary Chapel Melbourne School of Ministry and received the call to plant a church in 2012. After much prayer and multiple visits to Georgia God revealed that they would be planting a Calvary Chapel in North Georgia. The church that was planted started in their home, moved to a park pavilion, then to a small school, and in 2022 the Lord opened the door at their current location in Dawsonville. Since the church was started there have been hundreds of “Just One More…” stories.

The Birminghams have 3 adorable children and are currently obeying God’s call to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in Dawsonville, GA.
