Our History

ACF formerly known as TEN

The Evangelical Network (TEN) was founded by Fred Pattison in 1988 in Phoenix, Arizona. This is the story of our founder and the history of the organization. Fred Pattison, the then pastor of Casa de Cristo Church Fred Pattison – TEN Founder in Phoenix Arizona founded The Evangelical Network (TEN) in 1988.Fred’s life journey began in Westchester County in New York’s Hudson Valley, then on to Brooklyn and finally to Long Island where he grew up. His parents were Protestants and always saw to it that he attended whichever church they were attending. They moved several times always finding and attending a mainline Protestant church in the community where they were living at the time. As a young child and youth he always loved going to church. In fact from his earliest recollection he wanted to enter the ministry for his life’s work. Upon coming into a personal relationship with Christ, this desire to serve God intensified. He first heard the Gospel at a small independent fundamentalist Baptist church located on Long Island.
