Fast Facts: Fresno Church in Fresno, California is the recipient of Revitalize Network’s 2020 Church of the Year Transformation Award.
Fresno Church, originally named Ambassador Baptist Church, was founded in 1989 in Fresno, California. In 2008, thirty-seven people voted to make Josh Irmler their new lead pastor. Since then, he and his team have led the church through almost every imaginable transition possible. Everything from a campus relocation and a building construction with an auditorium to seat nearly 500, to re-writing the constitution and changing the name of the church. There were also many other important philosophical ministry shifts that were made throughout the years.
Since re-launching, Fresno Church has had several high days of over five-hundred people in attendance. Personal one-on-one discipleship has always been a high priority at Fresno Church, and over the years they have seen hundreds of people complete their discipleship program. Fresno Church has planted six other churches around the country with leaders who have been raised up from their own congregation.
Please pray for Pastor Irmler as he leads Fresno Church each Sunday in live interactive church services. Also pray for the church members as they serve their community by providing meals to local families, collecting food and snacks for hospital workers, and participating in a prayer drive to cover the Fresno community in prayer.
The 2020 Church of the Year Transformation Award was made possible by the Christian Standard Bible. https://CSBible.com/
