Reverend Yaw Poku founded International Baptist Ministries in September of 2008 in the garage of his home.  With an unwavering foundation in Christ, Pastor Yaw opened the doors of the current church building two years later.  International Baptist Ministries is a praying church for its members, community, Arizona, the United States and the world.   Our members are made up of diverse ethnic backgrounds and age groups.

We are a family oriented church that celebrates each other’s accomplishments and testimonies to the glory of God.  We also provide outreach service in our community, as it is an opportunity to share God’s love and compassion.  Each year we host a Back to School Back Pack Drive, October Halelujah Festival and Christmas Angel Toy Drive.
