Women's Ministry & CCE Secretary

(208) 891-2635 or

Like Mike, I was saved during the “Jesus Movement.”  I have been a pastor’s wife for over 37 years.  At Calvary Chapel Downey I worked with Women’s Ministry for 20 years; teaching, helping with the women’s study, leading small groups, planning retreats, writing and performing in plays and so much more. I have worked as a substitute teacher at a Christian school for several years, home schooled my girls for 8 years, in June I was able to retire from working with special education students in the public school system.

For the last 40 years I have also worked alongside Mike in ministry.  I always told him, “Your God is my God and your ministry is my ministry.”  We started by serving together in the Convalescent Ministry.  We worked together when he was Jr. High Pastor 5 years and High School Pastor 5 years.  During that time we took groups of teens on mission trips to Russia, England, Scotland, Mexico, skid row-Downtown Los Angeles and more. When he became the Mission’s Pastor, I was his secretary for 7 years.  We love serving Jesus together!  Now I get to serve alongside Mike by serving you, the women of our church.  It is such a privilege and blessing to be able to serve you.  Feel free to contact me  or 208 891-2635.

God Bless,

Linda Sasso

Children's Ministry

I have had the privilege to be part of Children’s Ministries for 10 years now.  In 2011, our family moved from Anaheim CA, where we attended Calvary Chapel East Anaheim.  I served in the Children’s Ministry as the Elementary Coordinator for 8 yrs.

I was saved in 1991 & I love that the Lord is using my family to serve Him in Children’s Ministry.  I have 2 boys who also serve alongside in the Children’s Ministry in various capacities.  I love to see their hearts grow into wonderful servants for the Lord.

It brings great joy to watch the children who are coming to Calvary Chapel Eagle grow in their love & knowledge for the Lord.    “Proverbs 22:6  “Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” NASB.  Here at Calvary Chapel Eagle, we have a wonderful team of faithful & dedicated individuals to serve in God’s Kingdom.

Blessings to you!
