Yes, it is pretty surprising considering Phoenix's demographics. Most of the churches are in South Phoenix, but there are newer congregations in the East Valley (Mesa/Tempe).

The land on which one church, Tanner Chapel AME, sits on served has been in AME hands since 1886. It first served as an AME mission, and adjacent property was purchased and constructed as a church in 1899. Tanner Chapel A.M.E. Church (http://www.tannerchapel.org/church_history.html - broken link)

So, is the church in the center of the Black community there? That means that the roots of the church and community go back before Arizona was a state.

I am not sure that it is the center of the community, but it has sustained a sizable congregation all of these years. I am sure it has served as a meeting place for the South Phoenix community as some times more than others.

That's not surprising at all, LOL. Memphis has a large Black population and COGIC is headquartered in Memphis.
