Loving Jesus, Loving People, Serving Both Since 2004
Bread of Life Church of Fresno was officially established in the fall of 2004 under the leadership of Gilbert and Ann Delgado, who have a long history of Christian service in the Fresno Area. After gathering friends and family members, along with a small church they were serving at the time, this small group came together to form Bread of Life Church of Fresno.
As the church was looking for their next steps, they began to realize that another leader would need to come to serve Bread of Life Church. In the winter of 2011, Tom Bedford who pastored a church in the Midwest at the time came to visit. In those days, it began to be clear that it was time for Tom and his wife, Andrea, who are native Californians, to return home. They came back to Fresno, to walk with the church; with the understanding that Tom would eventually become the pastor.
Fast forward to 2018 when Bread of Life moved into its new home at 4201 W. Shaw in Northwest Fresno. In this new season, there is a fresh expectation in the church as Jesus leads us into the next steps of the journey.
Tom Bedford was born and raised in the California Central Valley. After marrying his bride, Andrea, and finishing his education at Azusa Pacific University, he began to travel and minister. In 1995 he and his family moved to the Midwest to become part of the C2C family of churches. After pastoring Life Church of Kirksville for ten years, he and his family moved back to California where Tom began to lead Bread of Life Church of Fresno. Tom and his wife, Andrea, have five children and five grandchildren. He and Andrea travel nationally and internationally, working with the Salt&Light family of churches. He is also an avid electric guitar player and really enjoys coffee.
We are Bread of Life, a church family in Fresno that believes in the Lordship of Jesus Christ and seeks to follow him into the world as we share the message of his redemption and love.
We long to see a glorious church full of people from every generation, race, walk of life, who have truly met Jesus, and have been transformed through the power of God.
