Why We Exist

Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, you’re welcome here. Our hope is to give you a place where you experience a fresh, enjoyable connection to God and a community of people.

We keep our focus simple so we can have the biggest impact possible. Everything we do as a church is filtered through our focus on helping every person live the full life for which God created all of us.



Bob Ordeman is the founding pastor of International Christian Center.  In 1991 he, his wife and family launched the then-named Christian Fellowship Church in Brownsville. Since that time, it has grown to over 2300 members with an additional campus in Matamoros, Mexico.

The vision the Lord placed in Pastor Bob’s heart was to strive to see, every person a believer, every believer a disciple, and every disciple a minister. Pastor Bob has a heart for evangelism  and the development of leaders. His goal is to see the kingdom of God expanded by the participation of many lay ministers. Serving is at the heart of being a member of the congregation and many Christians have become equipped to serve God in the community and the church through the discipling process at ICC.

Pastor Bob and his wife Libby have four married children and nine grandchildren who live in Tampa, Florida; Austin, Texas; Houston, Texas and Brownsville, Texas.
