  • youth leadership team

    One of the goals of Desert Spring's Youth program is to grow Christian leaders.

    Our Leadership Team is made up of youth who are committed to their church and community.


    A huge thank you to all the youth who went to the LST Training!

    They spent two days working together building their relationsip with one another and improving their leadership qualities. Thanks to Kevin, Hailey, Tori, Paul, Julia, Elizabeth, Szoie, Giovanni as well as our awesome adult leaders Julie, Tim and Heather. You rock!!


    "I have been on the Leadership Team for three years now and I know it really has changed me. I have gained so many skills and confidence that I can use in everyday life. I am super stoked for this year!"
