Hosanna City Church started as a call from God upon Pastor Josh Best and his family. That call was to venture to the desert and plant a church. After much prayer and fasting it was apparent, God was sending them to the Coachella valley. Soon after their calling, Josh and his family by faith, moved to Palm Springs.
Typical of many churches before them, Hosanna had very humble beginnings. Eleven faithful people began to build the church by holding a single Sunday morning service at a small wedding garden in the heart of downtown Palm Springs. It was October 2011, using borrowed seating and a loaned sound system they began by worshiping and declaring Gods Word. As the Sundays passed, it was apparent that they needed an indoor facility to gather. Through the relentless prayers of those eleven people God began His work. In just eight short months God multiplied their numbers and made an opportunity available for them rent space in a local school. Very soon after that, another opportunity arose for them to move into a more permanent building. From the moment Pastor Josh stepped out in Faith, God has been steadily growing and transforming Hosanna City Church.
