Our Story

How it all started...

Jamul Bible Chapel and New Joy Chapel

Jamul Community Church is formed.
A small group of believers contacted the American Missionary Fellowship asking if they would send an AMF missionary to lead a weekly bible study. Jesse Johnson was sent and began meeting with them. The fellowship grew into JCC and Jesse Johnson became the first pastor. He served until 1990.
Second staff member added.
Gary Musser was called to serve as our associate pastor with an emphasis on youth ministry. In 1991 he accepted the call to become the senior pastor.
Danny Long was called to serve as our youth pastor.
A home of our own is sought.
Negotiations began to purchase land on Jamul Drive. Subsequent construction was provided primarily by members of JCC as we built “our home.”
Addition to the “home” before we move in.
As the move-in date to our new building approached, it was apparent that JCC had already grown too large for the site. God’s solution was to provide a second property. New Joy Chapel was closing its doors and wanted to give the property to JCC. It now serves as our offices and student center.
Finally, no more Sunday morning set-up!
The Spring of 2002 was a wonderful time of celebration as JCC moved in to its new facility on Jamul Drive.
2002 – today
While we gather each Sunday to worship our Lord and Savior at the Jamul Drive, our two campuses host dozens of ministries (like Common Threads and Multiply) and groups (for men, women, young adults, students, and kids) throughout the week. We hope you’ll join us in the next chapter of God’s story for the people in and around Jamul!
