The CALL in Independence County

The CALL in Independence County has always been actively seeking Christian homes answering the call from God to foster, adopt, or volunteer.  Recruiting, training, and supporting families in the Christian community to open their homes to foster or adopt is our mission. At this time, we are seeking committed volunteers to fill needed positions on our Leadership Team. Our teams are comprised of at least 12 individuals with different talents, skills, and abilities. We are seeking volunteers who are called by God to stand in the gap for the foster children of Independence County by mobilizing the church to embrace the orphan ministry. Our modern-day orphans are foster children and those who are waiting on a forever family to adopt them.

Summer Sudol, the County Coordinator, needs to step aside for someone else to step up. She is the Children’s Director at Compass Church. Her ministry at the church and her family need her total focus. We applaud the work she has done for The CALL in Independence County. Our prayer is to find someone to take the County Coordinator position with the passion and compassion Summer has so graciously shared with the CALL families and foster children of Independence County.

The Leadership Team is made up of the following coordinators:

  • Team Chair
  • County Coordinator
  • Fundraising Coordinator
  • Family Support Coordinator
  • Communications Coordinator
  • Database Coordinator
  • PRIDE Training Coordinator
  • CPR/First Aid Coordinator
  • Prayer Team Coordinator
  • Financial Coordinator
  • Support Group Coordinator
  • CALL Mall Coordinator
  • Church Recruitment Coordinator
  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • And others as needed….
