At Desert Streams, we strongly emphasize participation in both a Sunday morning celebration service and in lifegroups. In the book of Acts the first church met daily “from house to house” (Acts 20:20). Real life change usually happens one on one, or in small groups of people (2-12).

The purpose of our lifegroups is to meet regularly for the purpose of evangelism, community, and discipleship. It is in this setting that the practical sharing of lives, growing to spiritual maturity, and multiplication of leadership takes place. It is our goal that every person would be “doing the work of ministry,”  and that faithful people would impart to others who would become faithful as well.

Your People Shall be my People

What: Now updated and expanded, this landmark text reveals God’s purposes for his covenant people in these times–and how this revelation is impacting the church. Unlike Ruth in the Old Testament, many of us have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah, and we share the collective guilt for centuries of their persecution. These pages remind us that now, more than ever, we must confess, embrace, and intercede for the chosen people of God, aligning our prayers with God’s plan.

Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenant pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the church will never be the same!
