BG-Church

Southwest Church is an Evangelical Free Church and came from humble beginnings combined with a bold vision. In 1973, a group of eight people started a small church called Desert Evangelical Church with their purpose being “to establish and maintain an evangelical Christian Church and to provide a place of public worship.” Decades and a few church names later, that same pursuit ignites the people of Southwest. Today, Southwest offers dozens of ministries, with thousands of residents in attendance each week, in the relentless pursuit of the vision that ‘every resident of the Valley will be a Jesus-follower.’

Southwest is located in the heart of the Coachella Valley, which is populated by nearly 600,000 people with another 3.5 million in annual tourists. Sitting on 45 acres that shares a property line with the world-famous Indian Wells Tennis Gardens, on one of the ten busiest intersections of the Valley, Southwest Church is easy to access and uniquely positioned.
