Origins of our Name

The name “Desert Streams” flows out of a passage of the Bible — Isaiah 43:19–21 — that the Lindenbergs sensed God giving them in the spring of 2004. The passage was of particular encouragement and inspiration to them in the process of starting this ministry.

Desert Streams is a “new thing,” (i.e. a new ministry) which God is bringing into existence out of His wonderfully creative nature.

Further, this passage speaks of God as being the source of Life. Apart from God our lives are like dry and barren wastelands that we become trapped in. God is willing to come into our wasteland with His Living Water (i.e. His Spirit) to revive us, and He is willing to lead us from the wasteland into a spiritual place of beauty, refreshment and freedom.
