Our Ministries at Desert Springs Church

God places a spiritual gifting within every believer. Among the variety of our ministries at Desert Springs Church, you and your family can find a place to use those gifts!

Once you determine which gift or gifts you have, start using them to glorify God. By using your spiritual gifts to volunteer in a ministry or around your church, you are moving the Kingdom of God forward. And that applies no matter how small the job may seem.

If you choose to volunter in one our ministries, there are a wide variety from which to chose. With all of these many ways to get involved, it is a fantastic way to connect with others while serving the Lord. Our church is very missional and encourage you to step into one or more ministry and learn how to Serve Christ by Serving Others.

Opportunities in Our Ministries

Desert Springs Church offers a personal connection for you and your family to grow in your faith in Palm Desert, CA. We offer classes and groups ready to help you go deeper with God. Check out the numerous opportunities available to you in our ministries to Know, Grow and Go with Jesus.


Sunday mornings are a great time to hangout and get into God's word. Student Youth (6th-12 grade) are invited to our Contemporary REFRESH worship and then are released to their youth room, “The LOFT,” for a student inspired message with Pastor Collin, or guest speaker from 11:00am – 12:00pm.


At Desert Springs Church, Life Groups are all about doing life together. We believe that God never meant for us to do life alone. We were created to walk with each other, to grow with one another and to glorify God together. Life Groups meet across the valley each week in homes or at the church.


"The CLASS" offers a Sunday morning, large-group Bible-study experience for our seniors. Join us upstairs in The LOFT (9:15 - 10:30 AM) for inspiring traditional worship music, coffee, snacks, and an interactive lesson with Pastor Jim Zeilenga. It’s Faith, Fun, Fellowship, and Food every Sunday morning!
