About Us

Our Story

In 2004, Pastor Obed & Lissette gathered with 7 families in a living room in Rancho Mirage, CA and dreamt of a local church that would transform the lives of many and shake the Coachella Valley for Christ. On March 7, 2004, the dream came to fruition as Destiny opened its doors at the Adams Elementary School atrium and welcomed many families for the very first time. 

Since that first service, God has moved in amazing ways and has used Destiny to change thousands of lives in the Coachella Valley and now in the south bay. Through God's favor and an unremitting pursuit of a passionate mission, Destiny has experienced over 5,000 professions of faith and over 1,700 baptisms since our launch. From humble and sacrificial beginnings, God has placed his hand on Destiny and we truly believe the best is yet to come.

Our Logo

It’s more than a logo. It’s a lifestyle.

We believe that Christianity is more than just stuff you do, it’s a journey to who you become. Years ago, God gave our Pastors a design that defines what we’re about as a church. It’s what we believe each person can experience when they choose to follow Jesus. Everything in our life is multiplied when we pick up the cross.
