Paul & Fenny Powers | Elders

When Paul and Fenny Powers were approached by Desert Streams leadership in late 2012 they had no idea what was to come. Having married 3 years prior, and with a brand new baby to care for, the new parents were happy just sitting in the pew, being fed by the ministry of Pastors Gil and Nanci. So, on that late September evening when they were asked to consider serving as elders, it came as a complete surprise. The Lord slowly got a hold of their hearts and with the confirmation of the current elders, they became excited about serving Jesus, the church, and the pastors whom they loved. They have been serving faithfully since then. Paul and Fenny bring years of loving Jesus and practical ministry to the body at Desert Streams.

Anna Jones | Children's Director

Anna Jones loves kids and Jesus. She met and decided to follow Jesus at 11 yrs of age (Best decision ever!) and has followed him through life’s twists and turns. One of those twists was working with kids through Parks and Rec, creating art, playing sports, and shining her light into kids hearts. This is where she realized she was called to work with kids. In 2016 the opportunity to work with kids and direct them to Jesus presented itself, and she joyfully stepped into the role of Children’s Director at DSC. Anna, her husband Casey, and their 2 kids, enjoy being outside adventuring, and spending time with friends and family.
