Student Ministry

Student Ministries

Equipping 7th-12th grade students and their parents to love God, serve one another, and reach the world.

Ministry Overview

Desert Hills Student Ministry exists to glorify Christ through faithful discipleship of students and their parents. We seek to accomplish this by building strong relationships with parents and systematically teaching students the Word of God. The goal is equipped students who are biblical in their convictions, godly in their character, and capable of handling the challenges that await them as young adults.
