Pastor Stephen Chandler dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal: Help people connect with God in a church without letting structures and programs get in the way. With the help of the Dream Team—40 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality—Destiny Church launched on September 11, 2011. That first Sunday, 331 attended at our first Baltimore location.
Pastor Stephen focused on reaching out to the non-churched community, building relationships through Connect Groups meeting throughout the city. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday Celebrations, and the simple style of Destiny Church brought immediate results. In the first year 325 people committed their lives to Christ. At the same time, the church helped in the planting other churches through a partnership with the Association of Related Churches and gave over ten percent of its income to missions.
Destiny Church offers contemporary, biblically-driven worship services that are alive with energy and creativity, as well as excellent childcare, exciting children's and student ministries, and dynamic small groups.
God is at work at Destiny Church. If you haven't visited, we invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion!
