Our Story

Hosanna City Church exists to see people far from God come to know Him and make Him known!


Hosanna City Today

Moving Forward with the Lord

Founder Josh Best was called out by the Lord in February 2021 to Tennessee.  Josh passed the baton of leadership over to Pastor Sean Jones who over the past seasons has continued in the Lord's mission to see people far from God come to know Him and to make Him known.  The four core values are still an everyday staple in our mission to the community around us and fulfilled through our services and Life Group outreaches.

Answering the Call

How It Started

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.

Don't Despise Humble Beginnings

Humble Beginnings

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.

To Make Him Known

Our Expansion

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.
