  Jeff &Shelley Mott - Associate Directors    Jeff and Shelley Mott fell in love studying a world map. After serving in the Czech Republic for 6 years as full-time missionaries with a sports and performing arts ministry, the Mott’s encountered TheCall ministries and learned about the powerful necessity of worship, fasting and intercession, especially as it concerns reaching the nations.  Jeff and Shelley’s work experience also includes teaching in private schools, working at a Native California Plant Nursery, and owning an organic farm in Ohio.  Upon retiring the farm after 10 years, the Mott family dreamt again of ministering to the nations, and prayerfully decided to rejoin TheCall ministries in Pasadena, now serving one of their affiliate training schools, Ekballo Pasadena.  They have led mission trips to Peru, Venezuela, France, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Jamaica, Sweden, Germany, Thailand and Mexico, and look forward to leading many more youth to the nations.     Jeff and Shelley have been married for 23 years and have three sons: Joel, Jeremiah and Simeon, who are also active alongside them in ministry.
