Danielle Berumen

Associate Pastor

I am an ever-growing disciple of Jesus, a wife, a mommy-to-be, and a lover of Mexican food. Summertime is my favorite season, which makes the eternal summer of Palm Springs the best place in the world to serve and minister. I am passionate about youth and family ministries, and I love sharing Jesus with kids. Our kids are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today. Every believer, young and young-at-heart, has a special role to play in our church family.
