Pastor Kevin D. Edwards dreamed of planting a life-giving church that would impact individuals throughout southern Illinois and across the world. As a local pastor, God planted this dream into Kevin’s spirit many years prior to the official birth of Destiny Center.
Pastor Kevin asked for God to confirm the vision and dream of Destiny through bringing people together without having to be asked, a sign that God was going to supply the needs of planting a life-giving church. Since the first meeting in August 2011, God has continued to draw people with a heart that meshes with the dream. There were 42 people in attendance in that first meeting. The first official church service saw 204 people in attendance.
Destiny Center was started out of a desire to see people connect with God and with others. It continues to keep this desire as the main focus in reaching for non-churched and dechurched individuals; building authentic relationships through connect groups throughout the surrounding communities
God is at work at Destiny Center. 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!
