Founding Apostles & Overseers...


Apostles Brian & Phaedra Alton

Apostles Brian & Phaedra Alton are the founding Senior Pastors of Desert Rose Community Church.  They began this ministry in 1997 in a little wedding chapel with 7 people.  They have ministered to people all over the Valley of the Sun as well as around the world.  In 2017 God called them to evangelize the world for Him.  They are currently traveling and ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


Apostle Brian Alton is the founder and Chancellor of Gateway International Bible Institute (GIBI) as well as the presiding Bishop of International Covering Alliance and Licensing for Ministries (ICALM).

They passed the baton to Pastors Harvey & Joan to continue to do a good work here in Peoria, AZ.  We are excited for the new day and the new things that God has in store for us here at Desert Rose.  We pray you will come visit us and see what the Lord is doing!
