Desert Palms Church is a community of believers driven by a love for Jesus Christ, a desire to glorify Him in worship, a commitment to making disciples, and a call to kingdom living. Our passion is for the gospel to bring renewal and reformation in Chandler and beyond. We want to equip and enable each student and their family to be a part of this mission.


The family has an important role in the life of each student. Our ministry exists to provide another venue for the teaching and modeling of the Christian worldview. Our aim is not to replace the family, but to assist them by providing teaching and training to both parents and students. We will provide opportunities for the families to hang out, to serve, and to learn.

Not only do we want to affirm the family role, but we want to build a strong community amongst the students in our ministry. It is important for them to build peer relationships with the purpose of encouraging and strengthening their faith in Christ.

The student ministry is not to be in isolation from the church, but is to be part of the church body. Students will be encouraged to participate in the church and godly men and women will be urged to pray for the students.

The student ministry will equip students and their families to engage the culture. We want families to be able to articulate and share the gospel with those in their community.
