How we can help you.

Mid-Valley Association exists to assist partner churches to effectively fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.  

We are a cooperative partnership of Southern Baptist Churches in Fresno and surrounding three counties.

The Purpose of this Association is to assist, encourage and coordinate the efforts of our cooperating congregations as they labor together to fulfill the Great Commission in the spirit of the Great Commandment.

Our Priorities

To accomplish our purpose, we focus on assisting each of our congregations with five priorities:

    • Church Starting
    • Church Health
    • Pastor/Leadership Development
    • Missions/Ministries
    • Fellowship/Encouragement


Our goal is to plant 3 new churches by the end of 2020. Two Spanish speaking and one multi-cultural.  Please consider a donation toward that cause. Watch the video to find out more and click below to donate online.
