Fresno, California

Located on the outskirts of Yosemite National Park and minutes away from the famous Sequoia trees, Fresno is a thriving metro-city with a large multicultural population. Based in the heart of central California, agricultural and industry play a large part in the economy and make it an exciting place to live. With a metro population of over 1 million people, the opportunity for revival and harvest is great. Come partner with Bro. Sones, former missionary to Spain, to share the gospel across cultures and impact a city for the kingdom!

Testimonials

AYC truly was a blessing to my life and the ministry that God has called me to. I personally believe that every young person who feels the call of God upon their life and desires to pursue His mission, should find a way to “GO” with AYC.
