Fresno Strategic Growth Plan
Mercy and Grace Ministries provides church services to the church behind prison walls and juvenile facilities. We bring teaching, preaching and testimony to deliver hope, give encouragement, and reveal the love of Christ for transformational change.
Fresno is a strategic region that is centrally located and will serve 9 state prisons within 1.5 hours. Mercy and Grace already serves 4 of these facilities.
The region will be the 1st regional launch outside the San Francisco Area and Mercy and Grace plans to use this as a blueprint for other regions. Our goals include the following:
- Build regional teams closer the facilities we serve.
- Build teaching and go team's for prison and juvenile facilities.
- Add programs that better serve the facilities outside of weekend church services.
- Provide educational resources for Chaplains to better serve the church.
- Create strategic partnerships to sustain ministry financially.
