Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Placerville extended a call to Jeff Oliver from Darlington, England to become their Pastor in March 2006.† He was ordained and† installed as Pastor on July 7 2006 and commenced his ministry on August 14 2006.


Jeff Oliver was born on May 27, 1962 and spent his childhood in Darlington, North East England. He obtained his undergraduate degree at Manchester University in 1983 and subsequently pursued a career in private industry.  After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, he has worked for several multi-national companies in both Financial and General Management positions.


While working in Scotland, Jeff met his future wife Jane in Dumfries, South-West Scotland.  After a brief engagement, they were married in April 1993 in Jane's home town of Kilmarnock, Scotland.


After twenty years in business Jeff was called to the gospel ministry.† His then home church, Geneva Road Baptist Church in Darlington sent him to study at Westminster Theological Seminary in California, Escondido, California where he received a Master of Divinity Degree in May 2006. 


In a number of important ways the Geneva Road church is very like Grace Reformed Baptist Church.  It is fully committed to the doctrines of the 2nd London Baptist Confession, gives central place in its worship to the preaching of Godís word, and is active in missionary endeavors.  Jeff was a member of this church for over twenty years and preached frequently here as well as in the pulpits of other like-minded sister churches in the region.
Jeff has served pastoral internships in Reformed Baptist churches in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and in Nairobi, Kenya.
